OK. Admit it: you watched the Royal Wedding. And now, you want to enjoy that l-o-n-g honeymoon we call an Alaska Summer! Well–have your staff (*SNORK*) make your arrangements at Princess Lodges. Oh–they’re all over: at Denali Park, up in Fairbanks, at the headwaters of the Kenai River (pictured above). You’ve seen the lodges before–and you’ve wanted to stay there. Well, here are some great deals that will appeal both to the King of Comfort and the Queen of Coupons!

a. Copper River Princess. The lodge sits atop a bluff overlooking the confluence of the Klutina River and the Copper River just south of Glennallen. You can see the Trans-Alaska Pipeline from the deck. You also can see the AWESOME Wrangell Mountains. That view is meant to tempt you to explore our nation’s largest national park (Wrangell-St. Elias N.P.). Rates start at just $79 per night. AWESOME! 

b. Kenai Princess Lodge. Located in Cooper Landing–you can get a great view of Kenai Lake or the Kenai River. Hiking, fishing, floating, photography–pick your passion. You won’t be disappointed in this glorious setting. Room rates start around $129–but fair warning: only single-night stays are available. So, use the Kenai Princess as a half-way point for your Kenai Peninsula adventure this summer. It appears the word is out about this great lodge….so stop in and check it out for yourself.

c. Ride the train–see Denali! The Princess Rail Tours deals are great. Choose from one- or two-night adventures. It goes like this: take the train from Anchorage (or Fairbanks) up to Talkeetna or Denali Park. You’ll get there in time to take in some optional tours and activities. Then, bunk down in the comfy lodge and start it all over again the next morning. But the train ride makes all the difference! These are full-dome cars, so everyone gets a view–all the time. Overnight packages from Anchorage (two days/one night) start at just $99.50 per person, double. That includes rail, transfers and accommodations!! The three-day/two-night packages start at just $129.50 per person. You can mix up the actual itinerary to include two nights at Mt. McKinley Princess (near Talkeetna), or one night at Mt. McKinley and one night at the Denali Princess.
