Regarded by many as the experts of cruising in Alaska, Princess Cruises are constantly finding new ways to immerse their guests in the beauty and spirit of this part of the world. Their latest innovation certainly helps to achieve this – allowing visitors the opportunity to be up close to the wilderness and enjoy the vast views. Welcome, the Denali Treehouse.

 

 

Built at their Mount McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge, the treehouse boasts some incredible views of the surrounding Denali National Park. At around 500 square feet there is ample room for guests to mingle and relax with a hot chocolate, or don a pair of binoculars to watch the local birdlife. The treehouse is also the venue for various hosted activities;

• Meet and Greet with Todd Huston – join world-record holding Todd as he recounts the stories of the first successful ascension of nearby Mount Denali while you make the short hike to the treehouse. Here you’ll be able to mingle and absorb the views with hot drinks and doughnuts.

 

 

• Sappy Hour – a wonderfully informative event in which guests will be taught about local products made with nearby spruce and birch trees. Sample a taste of the unique rare birch syrups.

• Trivia – each day an Alaska-themed quiz will be held in the treehouse, where you can get to know fellow travellers, as well as this rich North American land.

The treehouse has been built with reclaimed Alaskan wood from Ketchikan and Palmer, and was featured on Animal Planet’s Treehouse Masters TV show.
