Room and Board
Denali ATV Adventures provides dormitory-style housing next to Otto Lake 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, grills, 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 tours and glacier landings around Denali, helicopter tours with glacier landings, bus trips into the national park, fly fishing, 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
Denali ATV does not pay for transportation to and from the Denali area, but we will help you to plan your transportation. The easiest and most economic option is to fly into Anchorage and take either the train or shuttle bus to Denali/Healy. We will pick you up at the local train station or bus drop-off. Our employees do receive a substantial discount on fare to Denali from the Alaska Railroad and other shuttles.
We provide a regular shuttle service around the Denali area. Denali National Park runs free and fee based shuttles throughout the park and several other hotels and restaurants run free and fee based shuttles in the Denali area.
Parking is limited at Denali ATV and all employee cars must be disclosed at the time of employment.
A memorable tour experience begins at our Tour Office, is continued the Driver-Guides, peaks with the trail ride, and lasts because of the overall team impact. All positions are in front of guests, require the ability to stand for 8 hours a day and the disposition to be outside in all weather.
