                           Seldom Seen: Wilderness Highlights

                                      The Kenai Princess Lodge.




         I believe this is the type of Lodge that most guests are envisioning when they contemplate visiting
Alaska. The public rooms are as inviting as the guest rooms. The lobby has vaulted ceilings and an
enormous stone fireplace surrounded by chairs for relaxing and visiting with friends. Just beyond the
lobby is an expansive deck, optimal for viewing the Kenai River valley, nearby mountains and the bright
blue waters of the Kenai River just below.

        The guest rooms are bungalow-style duplexes that have been designed for exceptional comfort,
and relaxation. Vaulted ceilings made of naturally finished wood, cozy sitting areas with wood-burning
stoves and private porches. It is your personal haven for 2 days.

        All that being said the clincher is an exclusive location with only 86 bungalows. Better yet, there
are no other hotels in sight! As well as, plenty of opportunities to breathe the freshest air imaginable and
enjoy the great Alaskan outdoors.

         While it can be hard to leave the cozy romance of this Wilderness Lodge, there are a range of
optional activities to enjoy. The Kenai River is not only famous for its dazzling blue-green hues, but is a
haven for fishing and rafting. Plus, there are plenty of nature walks right from the Lodge, wildlife viewing
opportunities and horseback riding excursions. Perhaps, the best wildlife viewing ( such as whales, sea
lions, sea otters, sea birds, porpoise, eagles, seals, mountain goats, and bears ) along with alpine and
tidewater glaciers is a cruise of the Kenai Fjords National Park.

                     Must See & Do: Transportation Highlights




         White Pass & Yukon Railway: Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, this narrow
gauge railroad is an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, a designation shared with the
Panama Canal, the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty. The WP&YR was considered an impossible
task but it was literally blasted through coastal mountains in only 26 months. The $10 million project was
the product of British financing, American engineering and Canadian contracting. Tens of thousands of
men and 450 tons of explosives overcame harsh and challenging climate and geography to create "the
railway built of gold."
          The WP&YR climbs almost 3000 feet in just 20 miles and features steep grades of up to 3.9%,
cliff-hanging turns of 16 degrees, two tunnels and numerous bridges and trestles. The steel cantilever
bridge was the tallest of its kind in the world when it was constructed in 1901.
The 110 mile WP&YR Railroad was completed with the driving of the golden spike on July 29, 1900 in
Carcross ,Yukon connecting the deep water port of Skagway Alaska to Whitehorse Yukon and beyond to
northwest Canada and interior Alaska.
         This tour is a suggest add-on to this tour for an additional $112 each.
         Expert historic narration by the White Pass & Yukon Staff.
         Guaranteed forward facing seats.
         Jaw dropping scenery.


        Princess Railcars: These two-level railcars are attached to the Alaska Railroad train for travel
between Talkeetna/Denali Park and Denali Park/Whittier. The rail-line follows the river network, which
afford excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. The railcar itself is operated by Princess Tours for the
exclusive enjoyment of their guests. These rail-cars have a spacious upper level dome seating area (88
guests), cocktail bar and an open air viewing platform on each car. A fine dining experience is available
for purchase in the dining room on the main level.
      Guaranteed seat in the dome viewing area.
      12.5 hours of travel through Alaska’s Wilderness (4.5 hrs. Fairbanks/Denali; 8 hrs.

                    Must See & Do: Sightseeing Highlights




Denali Tundra Wilderness
Tour (7-8 hours) Traveling 54 miles
into the park to the Toklat River rest
area (Mile 53), the Tundra Wilderness
Tour offers a wonderful diversity for
visitors. Incredible scenery, a narrated
history of the park road and some of
the best opportunities to view the
park’s wildlife inhabitants await you on
this tour. Typically, twice as much
wildlife, is seen on this tour as the
Natural History Tour.
While we can’t promise or predict
when wildlife will show, the tour allows
plenty of opportunity to look for Dall
sheep, moose, caribou, wolves and
grizzly bears. On days when Denali
(Mt. McKinley) is visible, it may be
possible to travel to Stony Hill
Overlook (another eight miles down
the road) and view the entire mountain
from base to summit. Please note that
the Stony Hill Overlook option is not
available prior to June 1st due to
Denali National Park Road regulations
and conditions.

The Tundra Wilderness Tour buses
feature drop-down video screens.
When your tour driver/naturalist is
able, they will take video footage of
animals along the road and project the
image onto the screen so you can get
a close-up look at the action. A box
lunch is included. This is the premier
tour at the Park for an additional $60
each.
