Variations of this tour have been in existence since 1923, with the first concessioner offering bus trips as far as the road extended at that time.
Today, the TWT is a 7-8 hour excursion into the park with a certified driver-naturalist. This tour provides in-depth information about the history of the park, while maintaining a keen eye in search of wildlife and photography opportunities. From May 20—31, the tour travels as far as Mile 53, Toklat River. From June 1—mid-September, the tour travels to Mile 62, Stony Overlook.
Wheelchair accessible buses are available, and all stops are wheelchair accessible.
Up to 30 or 40 Tundra Wilderness Tours travel into the park each day; most departures are early morning or early afternoon. The schedule each day is able to flex depending on demand, so there is no fixed, daily schedule. Contact the tour bus company for more details.
