Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge (Talkeetna)
Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge®
The native Alaskans called it Denali - ''The Great One'' - and you'll find towering Denali and the Alaska Range simply stunning. The lodge is located approximately one hour from the town of Talkeetna, which is nestled at the base of Mt. McKinley and is also home to the Talkeetna, Chulitna & Susitna Rivers. Some residents say Talkeetna means "Where three rivers meet" but established in 1919 Talkeetna is now more known as the base camp for climbers preparing for their attempt to ascend Denali. The rail depot is in Talkeetna and several land excursion tours have convenient tour times that will coordinate with the Princess Rail schedule to avoid the unnecessary one hour transfer between the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge and Talkeetna for those guests arriving or departing by rail. Refer to each description for our recommendations as to how to book Talkeetna or lodge based tour options to maximize your stay at the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge.
