The Best Adventurous Things to do in Talkeetna

Our list of the 25 top things to do in Talkeetna starts with activities that require planning and booking in advance. If you decide on one of those activities, you should book it before your trip, as it’s tricky to get a spot during the high season.

1. Take the Scenic Flight over Denali with Glacier Landing

Flightseeing Denali Tour from Talkeetna is one of our best Alaskan experiences. It’s our #1 top thing to do in Talkeetna, worth each penny. A scenic flight with a jaw-dropping view of the highest peak in North America is an unforgettable experience. We chose the option of a scenic flight with a glacier landing and a short glacier hike, and it was a great adventure. However, if you are looking for savings, consider just a scenic flight, as the price is more affordable. In a separate article, you can read our detailed review of the scenic flight and more photos. It’s a lifetime experience.

TRIP TIP: If you plan to visit Alaska between June and September, it is worth booking your flight months in advance. It’s also good to know that this activity is weather dependent, but if your flight is canceled due to weather, you can reschedule or get a refund. We booked our flight with K2 Aviation through GetYourGuide as we have used their services several times. They have a great booking, cancellation, and refund policy.

2. Visit Denali National Park and Preserve

Talkeetna is also a great starting point to explore Denali National Park and Preserve. It’s 152 miles from the entrance to the Denali and about 2 hours and 30 minutes of driving.

You can go to Denali on your own. In our post, Camping in Denali National Park, you can read about how to organize a trip. But you can also take an organized day tour from Talkeetna to Denali. We recommend this option if you are not experienced in the wilderness.

Another great option to explore the park is a bus tour. You have three options: Non-narrated transit buses, Narrated tour buses, or Free buses. Thanks to this, you will get to know the park in a nutshell. During such a tour, you also have a chance to encounter Denali’s Big 5: bears, caribou, Dall’s sheep, moose, and wolves. We haven’t spotted wolves yet during four trips to Denali, but we know some luckiest who did during a one-day bus trip. Without a doubt, Denali National Park is one of the best places in Alaska to observe wildlife.

Our Tip: If you plan to drive from Anchorage to Denali, check out the best stops along the way and other transportations mode. Check out the detailed Anchorage itinerary if you have some free time in Anchorage.

3. Take a Thrilling Zipline Ride or ATV Ride

If you love thrills and adrenaline rushes, book Denali Zipline Tours in Talkeetna. We recommended Viator for booking this tour, as you can cancel up to 24 hours before the experience for a full refund. During the three-hour tour, you’ll traverse nine different and exciting zip lines, three suspension bridges, a rappel, and a spiral staircase while strapped in from start to finish – all through and amidst the beautiful boreal forest. You will have a chance to admire the Alaska Range, the Susitna and Chulitna Valleys, and the south side of Denali as you zip from platform to platform.

Another type of great fun in Talkeetna that you can consider is ATV Adventures. You can participate in historic tours, ride an ATV through downtown Talkeetna, and experience a Scenic Trail Ride to DeVore’s Historic Homestead. Enjoy a deli sandwich, practice your aim, and pan for gold in Wiggle Creek. ATV rides are another option. On this adventure, you’ll ride your ATV through downtown Talkeetna, cross the Talkeetna River Bridge, and ride ten miles of Scenic Groomed Trails.

As early as 1896, a gold rush in the Susitna River drainage brought prospectors to the area. The discovery of gold in 1905 in the Yentna-Cache Creek district, west of present-day Talkeetna, brought more prospectors to the area.

In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation allowing the U.S. government to build a railroad from Seward to Fairbanks in interior Alaska. Talkeetna’s history began in 1916 when the area was selected as headquarters for the Alaska Railroad. By the end of 1916, nearly 400 people were employed at the Talkeetna Railroad Camp.

In addition, the Talkeetna Museum is located in the original Territory of Alaska Talkeetna School building, which opened in the 1936-37 school year. Moreover, the price is affordable, only $5 per adult.

Our favorite part is the mountain exhibit, which shows Denali and the surrounding peaks of the Alaska Range as a room-sized model. Here you can learn about the history of mountaineering and expeditions to Denali. The summit was first climbed on June 7, 1913, by Hudson Stuck, Harry Karstens, Walter Harper, and Robert Tatum. On March 1, 1967, Art Davidson, Dave Johnston, and Ray Genet were the first to reach the summit in winter.

The Fairview was built during Prohibition and didn’t have a bar or saloon at the time. Nauman sold his hotel in 1939, and the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

Nearly 1000 people lived in the railroad boomtown in 1917. Nagley’s merchandise was an immediate success.

Nagley’s is a must for a good morning in Talkeetna, serving delicious Kaladi Brothers coffee, espresso, and cappuccino. Sandwiches, sodas, and snacks round out your day of sightseeing.

10. Admire Art at the Aurora Dora Gallery & Dancing Leaf Gallery

There are several tiny and atmospheric galleries in Talkeetna. Two of our favorites, which we think are worth stopping by while walking around the town, are The Dancing Leaf Gallery and Aurora Dora Photography Gallery. In the first one, you can admire Contemporary Art by Alaskan Artists. If you are looking for genuinely Alaskan-made products, you are in the right place. They feature a rotation of about 150 local artisans’ works. It’s a perfect place if you are looking for a unique gift.

A visit to Talkeetna without a sip of coffee at Uncle Leroy’s Coffee in the Old Blue School Bus would be an incomplete visit for us. This place is one of our favorites in town. The bus looks a bit like the green Magic Bus 142 from Into the Wild. Young people serve excellent coffee, the best in this part of Alaska, and great refreshing fruit juices, including hangover juice.

17. Taste Birch Syrup at Kahiltna Birchworks

An exciting idea to spend time in Talkeetna outside the town is to visit Kahiltna Birchworks and try Alaska Birch Syrup. It is located on the Talkeetna Spur Road, only one mile from the Parks Highway (Alaska Hwy 3). It’s a perfect place for families, and the syrup is delicious. During the short tour, you will learn how it is produced. And their ice cream is fantastic. We don’t have photos, as we ate them so fast.

18. Sample the Local Beers at Denali Brewing Company

It is known that not only coffee is good for us, and a bit of a slightly stronger drink will sometimes come in handy, especially in Alaska. In Talkeetna, we recommend tastings at a local brewery from Alaska. Local beers can be tasted in almost every pub and bar, but it is worth going for a tasting at Denali Brewing Company. Tasting Room is open daily from 12pm to 8pm and it’s located outside the town at 37083 Talkeetna Spur Rd.

How to Get to Talkeetna?

TRIP TIP: If you need to rent a car for your Talkeetna trip, we recommend the local rental company with headquarters in Fairbanks- Alaska Auto Rental. It’s a great local company with good vehicles, transparent rental terms, and professional service. We used their services.

Driving Directions from Fairbanks

If you’re coming from northern Alaska from the Dalton Highway or Fairbanks, you’ve got a long way to go. From Fairbanks to Talkeetna is 273 miles, which will take you at least four and a half hours without stops via AK-3 S. But it’s a scenic road with Denali National Park along the way. It’s worth stopping to see Magic Bus 142 in Healy and the abandoned Igloo City near Cantwell.

Driving Directions from Anchorage

From Anchorage to Talkeetna, you have only 113 miles and 2 hours of driving via AK-3 S and AK-1 S. So visiting Talkketna might also be a great idea as a one-day trip from Anchorage if you have limited time. However, as there are so many amazing things to do in Talkeetna and so adventurous activities, we highly recommend staying here for at least two days.
