Talkeetna Tours

Talkeetna, which means the “meeting of three rivers,” was an important trading community in the early pioneer days. Natives, trappers, and merchants used the rivers for transportation by boat in the summer and dog sleds in the winter.

Today, Talkeetna is the base camp for climbers testing their skills against Denali, as well as zipline adventures, river float trips, wilderness trail rides plus many more excursions.

Talkeetna tours and activities are a great way to experience the area. Gray Line Alaska offers a variety of things to do below.

Pricing and departure dates for 2023 sightseeing tours will be updated soon
