Talkeetna, Alaska Travel Information

Talkeetna, Alaska is a small town in rural Alaska, with a population of roughly 800 people. It's a place where I lived in 2007, and I still frequent as often as I can. Talkeetna is located about 70 minutes north of Wasilla, two hours north of Anchorage, and about three hours south of Denali.

Talkeetna is known for being a base camp for all the climbers who want to climb Denali, and a famous Talkeetna bumper sticker describes the town as "A quaint little drinking village with a climbing problem". For regular folks (non mountain climbers) and tourists like me, Talkeetna is a cute little Alaska town where you might just see some moose, and if the weather permits, you can charter an excellent flight tour around Denali.
