Denali EarthSong Lodge

Lodging near Denali National Park

EarthSong Lodge offers a variety of summer and winter adventures, ranging from lodge-based accommodations to overnight camping trips. In the summer, guests stay in their own single story honey-colored log cabin, complete with private baths, full and queen size beds, and hand-crafted furnishings. An evening slide show program by our staff Naturalist is also provided.

One of the highlights of EarthSong Lodge is a visit to the sled dog kennels, home to the friendliest working huskies in Alaska. Our dogs are veterans of many expeditions across the Arctic, and are used to guide people into Denali National Park. Our staff will give you a personalized tour through our sled dog kennels and let you visit with the dogs. Our sled dog kennel tours are every morning.  We also offer winter dog sled tours!

EXTENDED STAY SPECIAL:

After a very challenging 2020 and 2021 season, we are all looking forward to a more normal summer at EarthSong and Denali.  In celebration of the more-positive tourism outlook, we are offering an extended stay discount for anyone booking with us.  Stay at least four nights and you will get a 10% discount.  Stay at least 6 nights and receive a 20% discount.  This is for a limited time, and open for any nights in our 2022 summer season.  To receive the discount, go through our website online reservation system (not available if you book via another online service).  Use the contact form on this site and let us know your plans, then book the reservation.  Your balance will be adjusted to reflect the 10 or 20% discount.  This discount must be requested right after you reserve.  As always, let us know if you have any questions!

 

COVID-19 UPDATE FOR 2022 SUMMER SEASON:

EarthSong Lodge will be open for the 2022 Summer Season, beginning May 20th.  While the pandemic is still ongoing, the outlook for Denali and Alaska tourism for 2022 is optimistic.  We expect our lodge to operate normally, with the possible exception of the coffeehouse.  In 2020 Henry’s was closed and 2021 partially open for safety considerations.  We expect Henry’s will be open in the mornings for take out only, subject to change.  Evening slide presentations will be determined based upon current safety recommendations.  We recognize that the pandemic requires flexibility, and we will offer as many of our normal services as we safely can.

Our normal cancellation policy is back in effect for 2022.  There are COVID exceptions if a large-scale interruption in tourism occurs (like mandatory quarantine, etc.), but we do not foresee that.  If you have any questions on our cancellation policy, please contact us.

Masking and distancing policies may be in effect, and may change as the summer goes on.

Guests should also visit the Denali National Park website or our Facebook page to get updates on park access.  Denali will be operating almost normally this summer, but you should stay current on park policies prior to arrival.  We are also here to help you navigate things, as we always have offered our guests.

We can help you plan your dream Denali Vacation!

Most first-time visitors to Alaska are at a loss as to what activities to do, which bus to take into Denali National Park, and how best to spend their time. The EarthSong Lodge staff will go out of their way to help, both prior to and upon arrival.

Backcountry winter trips in Denali National Park, where you run your own sled dog team of friendly huskies, are available from November through March. Visit our Winter Activities page and Dog Sledding pages for more information. Our winter business now has exclusive use of a series of backcountry huts, for dog sled passenger trips and cross-country ski-support trips.

Our latest additions are two cabins near the coffeehouse, one a queen-suite cabin and one a standard cabin.  Both have porches overlooking the Alaska Range.  The Red Lantern Cabin and Stampede Cabin make our cabin total at 14 for our property, with five different sizes and floorplans to choose from.

SEE OUR WINTER TOURS: Besides the guided dog sled tours where you drive your own team, we now have Alaska Cross-Country Ski Trips! You can ski from cabin to cabin with just a fanny pack, while a dog team hauls all your gear.

We are located on Stampede Road, 4 miles off the Parks Highway. Stampede Road parallels the Denali National Park road, and we are just above tree line which is at elevation 2,000 feet with sweeping views of the Alaska Range right out front of a wide open tundra. It’s very scenic and beautiful, away from the tourist crowds and 17 miles northwest of Denali National Park. It takes guests an average of 20-25 minutes to arrive at the park.

The Lodge is open Mid May – Mid September. Please call for Details. In the Winter, our Sled Dog guests stay at a B&B close to our property.
