Step aboard Princess Rail, a double-decker car with 180-degree dome views, a dining area, and large open-air platforms. Princess offers some unique options—departures originating in Anchorage or Fairbanks, and staying one or two nights at either Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge, a Denali-area hotel—or both. Though many passengers are part of a cruise-tour, there are also plenty of seats for independent travelers.
Plenty of Space for Enjoying the Views
You’ll be moving through the Alaskan countryside on large domed train cars. As you take in the 180-degree view, share the experience with your family, or meet new friends as you chug your way north from Anchorage or south from Fairbanks. Listen to the interesting commentary provided by your onboard hosts. Then step outside to take in some Alaskan fresh air. The large outdoor viewing platforms allow for many people to be outside at once and reduce crowding.
Cool Technology, Delicious Food
Check out the GPS system that maps your precise spot and offers historical facts about your current location. You'll travel past raging rivers, the towering peaks of the Alaska Range, the bridge spanning Hurricane Gulch, and endless forests.
When you get hungry, go downstairs to the dining room. Look out the five-foot picture windows as you sit down to delicious cuisine. Or settle in and get comfortable, there's also table side service.
Front-Door Service to Your Hotel
Combine your train ride with a stay at one of Princess’s luxurious lodges: the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge, near the entrance to Denali National Park, or the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge, with amazing view of Denali. All summer, Princess offers a variety of packages leaving every day from Anchorage and Fairbanks. You’ll be whisked from train to hotel and checked in aboard the shuttle. Then spend one or more days enjoying luxurious accommodations with plenty of outdoor-excursion options.
