Let’s take a close look at a couple of Princess Lodges’ resorts in Alaska:
a. Kenai Princess. Perched on a promontory overlooking the headwaters of the Kenai River in Cooper Landing, the Kenai Princess is an ideal venue for the fishing enthusiast or wildlife watcher. Hire a guide and float the Kenai River–searching for a monster Rainbow trout or a fighting Red Salmon. Watch for moose near the river–or even a bear nearby at the Russian River. In nearby Seward, go for a wildlife cruise in Kenai Fjords National Park. Right now, get three nights for the price of two. Or, take advantage of special $99 mid-week rates in May.
b. Denali Princess. Situated at the entrance to Denali National Park, this is a great spot to launch a tour deep into the park. Choose from a Natural History Tour, a longer Wilderness Tour (6-8 hours), or a special bus tour that goes the entire 95-mile length of the park road–all the way back to Kantishna. Watch for bear, caribou, moose and other wildlife. Also, go rafting on the Nenana River, check out an Iditarod Musher’s kennel–or opt for a helicopter flightseeing trip. The Denali Princess also offers three nights for the price of two.
Specials also are available at the Copper River Princess, near the entrance of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park: $99 per night in May.
At the Mt. McKinley Princess, you also can get the $99 deal in May, as well as the third night free.
Up in Fairbanks, ask about special rates all year long. Hey, I had breakfast there on Tuesday. DELICIOUS!
Take advantage of 2-for-1 rail/hotel deals with Princess. You’ll ride the rails on the Midnight Sun Express private rail cars from Anchorage or Fairbanks to your property. Your package includes bus transfer to the hotel. Itâ€™s a great way to see the countryside. From Anchorage, be sure and have your camera readyâ€“since there are many opportunities to photograph Denali!!
