Your Summer Vacation Inspiration
Direct To The Wilderness Rail Journey Riding the rails. It's an experience in itself. A breathtaking journey by rail through Alaska's most precious, untouched wilderness. Venture onto the observation platform to watch the peaks of Denali rise up in front of you. Or grab a window seat to catch a glimpse of moose disappearing into a densely-packed forest. No other cruise line offers it - Direct-to-the-Wilderness rail service from your Princess cruise ship in Whittier to our Denali-area lodges. A luxurious glass-domed rail car whisks you away through dozens of picturesque rivers, meadows and mountain ranges. Miles and miles of spectacular scenery awaits as you soar along the original route of the Alaska Railroad. At the end of your journey, you'll arrive at one of our Princess Wilderness Lodges for an overnight stay in the heart of the Great Land, where you'll wake up amongst the scenic wonders that breathe life into Alaska.
