Hospitality in the Heart of the Last Frontier!

In Denali, Alaska, your morning commute is less than a 10-minute walk and your biggest traffic headache is a “moose jam.” There are few trails but endless hiking opportunities in one of the world’s most untouched wonders. Working at Denali is the perfect place to meet dedicated people who share your passion for nature, travel, adventure, and creating unique guest experiences.

6.2 million acres of Denali National Park & Preserve is home to Mount Denali, the highest point in North America. The park welcomes over half a million visitors per year. By road, the area is 5 hours from Anchorage and 2 hours from Fairbanks. Buses traverse the 90-mile road daily throughout the warm summer months, allowing people to hike, view wildlife, climb, and camp.

Room and Board

Employee housing varies between buildings and properties. All rooms come with the necessary furnishings for the summer. Room and board are payroll deducted at a rate of $15/day, which includes housing costs and three meals per day. Meals include several hot, cold, and grab-and-go options. 

This location is remote, but wi-fi is available in most employee areas and housing units. Cell phone service is relatively reliable through AT&T and Verizon. 

Employee Perks

Working at the Denali is a special experience, and we want to make sure that our employees are able to make the most of living, working, and learning here for the season. As part of the Aramark team, you’ll have access to: 

  • Competitive wages in a remote setting that provides a great opportunity for savings 

  • Discounts with retail, food & beverage, & local attractions 

  • Free and discounted bus tours in the park 

  • Hotel and lodging discounts 

  • Planned weekly activities  

Getting Here and Getting Around

We recommend employees purchase flights and reserve shuttles and rooms early in advance of the season. Teammates often purchase a one-way ticket to start, in case end dates change or they decide to road trip home. 

 You can fly in to either Anchorage or Fairbanks - both locations offer a shuttle to Denali National Park and Preserve. Fairbanks is closest to the park. Anchorage is further away but has more services and transportation options. 

For Fun

The remote setting of Denali offers a rare opportunity to explore and experience nature at its finest. Spend your free time hiking, biking, star gazing, rafting, camping, and so much more. 

The North Rim team offers plenty of planned recreational opportunities, such as team sports, holiday celebrations, arts and crafts, yoga, berry picking, movie nights, music and karaoke events, and viewings of the Northern Lights!
