Sleep with Princess–all around Alaska

In Adventure, Lodging, Parks, Uncategorized by scott


Between now and May 31, prices are as low as $99 per night at McKinley Princess (near Talkeetna), Copper River Princess (just south of Glennallen) and the Kenai Princess in Cooper Landing. These are great prices! 

The Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge is the closest lodge to the mountain. In fact, Denali fills up the entire northwestern horizon from the hotel! The new restaurant, “20,320” offers hearty fare and there is a bundle of optional activities, including:

a. Flightseeing of Mt. McKinley. Check the photo below!

b. Jeep Safaris

c. Jetboat tours with Mahay’s Riverboat Service

Enjoy free high-speed wireless internet access and free transfers to/from Talkeetna. Great rates all summer long from $129 per room/per night!

The Copper River Princess, just 14 miles south of Glennallen, is well-positioned to access Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.Rates are available all summer long for as little as $119 per room/per night.  I love the great view overlooking the Wrangell Mountains from the lodge. Also visible: the Copper River, the Klutina River and the trans-Alaska pipeline. Optional tours include:

a. Fishing on the Klutina River

b. Jetboat Tours on the Klutina River

c. Tours of historic Copper Center

d. Flightseeing in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, with optional daytour into Kennicott mining district! See photo below:

The Kenai Princess sits atop a bluff overlooking the headwaters of the Kenai River. You can see beautiful Kenai Lake in the background, too. Take a scenic float trip down the river, or hire a fishing guide for some salmon and trout fishing.  Rates are available for as little as $169 all summer long!

Oh, here’s my favorite package: 2-for-1 pricing on rail/hotel packages from Anchorage to Talkeetna on the Alaska Railroad. Ride the rails in Princess Tours’ Midnight Sun Express rail cars. Then, transfer from Talkeetna to the lodge for one or two nights. Priced from $119 per person! Check it out! Call reservations at (800)426-0500. Learn more online
