Princess Invites Alaska Guests to Play in their Treehouse

Cruise News – Jan. 15, 2018

Princess Cruises has announced something new for visitors to Alaska – a summer program at the line’s custom-designed wilderness treehouse at the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge.

From this lofty perch above the Alaskan forest, it’s possible to view Denali, the tallest peak in North America, while socializing and enjoying a selection of themed activities. The 500-square-foot, solar-powered treehouse was designed and built by Pete Nelson during an episode of the Animal Planet hit show Treehouse Masters, and was Nelson’s first treehouse in Alaska. Guests can reach the treehouse – which boasts one of the highest land-based viewing areas of the rugged south face of Denali – by hiking the short “hill trail loop.”

Programs in summer 2018 include “Trivia at the Treehouse,” testing visitors’ Alaskan knowledge; “Sappy Hour,” offering a rare sampling of birch syrups and other products of the boreal forests; and “Tales from the Sourdough Expedition,” in which Todd Huston, a world-record-holding amputee mountain climber as well as an author and motivational speaker, leads a walk to the treehouse while sharing the chronicle of the first successful ascent of Denali. Trivia is complimentary, while the birch-syrup sampling and Sourdough Expedition tales come at a nominal charge per guest.

“At destinations around the globe, we strive to create a bond between our guests and the places we visit, and now more than ever people are visiting Alaska to experience the beauty and adventure the state has to offer,” said Lisa Syme, Princess Cruises vice president. “As the No. 1 cruise line in Alaska, we are eager to bring these fresh and engaging experiences to our Alaska cruisetour guests, providing opportunities for more travelers to connect with the people, nature, storied traditions and history of the Great Land in 2018.”
