About Denali ATV Adventures
For more than 10 years, Denali ATV has injected fuel-driven thrills alongside those of the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness through guided ATV tours. As a local, family owned and operated a small business, we want our employees and guests to feel like family as well. Exceptional customer service, passion for our environment, and care for each other define us. The Denali ATV Tour Office is steps away from the main entrance of Denali National Park and tours depart just 10 miles north, in Healy. Our season is short and extreme! ATV tours depart every day, all day, in all weather, mid-May to Mid-September.
Denali ATV is part of the Denali Park Adventures tour family which also operates Denali Park Zipline and Denali Jeep Excursions.
The Employee Experience
Working at Denali ATV Adventures, each staff member will have the opportunity to live, work, and play right outside the 3rd largest national park in America, which is home to the largest mountain in North America! After your adventure-filled day of working alongside like-minded staff, you will have plenty of time to explore, hike, camp and many other activities under the midnight sun of Alaska.
Every staff member is vital to the continued success and growth of our company! We strive to facilitate an experience of fun, knowledge, ample recreation activities, team-building opportunities, and plenty of networking. We enjoy investing in our staff in many ways and look forward to the staff that returns year after year. Take a look at our videos and see for yourself a fraction of the activities you can participate in and a brief glimpse of what life looks like here in the interior of Alaska.
We are committed to the health and safety of our staff and guest! We are constantly following and updating protocols based on the guidelines from the CDC, State of Alaska and Denali Borough.

Room and Board
Denali ATV Adventures provides dormitory-style housing next to Otto Lake, at the base of the Northern Alaska Range in Healy, Alaska. Rooms are single occupancy (no roommates!). Kitchens and commons are in a separate building. Facilities include full restrooms, running water, on-site laundry, wireless internet, DirecTV, yard and deck with firepit, and outdoor games. Although meals are not included, kitchens have ample cooking equipment, counter space, and appliances. Food can be purchased at Three Bears Grocery, just 2 miles away. Best of all, housing is located at the ATV tour launch, so you have a very short commute! Rates for our employee housing start at $80 per week (single occupancy) and includes all utilities. All staff wishing to live at Denali ATV must sign a housing agreement.
If sharing housing with 20 employees doesn’t sound ideal to you or you travel with an animal friend, you will need to look for alternative housing. Local cabin rentals may be available, and you will have to provide your own transportation to work.
The Midnight Sun allows for maximum use of the day! After a shift, spend time hiking in Denali National Park or go on an overnight camping trip! Drift lazily in Otto Lake or raft the Nenana River! Spend evenings around a bonfire, catch the northern lights, or dance to local music.
Other local attractions offer complimentary or discounted tours to local employees such as whitewater rafting on the Nenana River, ziplining over the boreal forest, riding Jeeps down the Denali Highway, meeting the puppies and Iditarod Champion sled dogs at the local kennel, flight seeing and helicopter tours with glacier landings around Denali, bus trips into the national park, etc.
Complete the entire season with Denali ATV, fulfilling your contract, and receive an end-of-season bonus. Returning employees have priority during hiring, first pick at housing options, and other benefits.
Getting Here and Getting Around
