Denali by Land and Air

It’s hard to believe this is already our third full day on our 11-night Princess Cruises’ Denali Explorer Tour that began back on Tuesday in Anchorage. They say that time flies when you are having fun, and that’s most certainly the case today. Not only did we explore the vast expanse of Denali National Park by land – we also explored it by air.
After a lightning-fast breakfast, we were out and waiting in front of the main lodge for our Denali Natural History Tour. Included on Princess’ Denali Explorer, Off the Beaten Path and On Your Own cruisetour options, this five-hour long tour whisks guests 17 miles inside Denali National Park and includes three scenic stops that are interspersed with visits by local interpreters and historical guides.
For those guests who opt to do one of Princess’ top-of-the-line Connoisseur cruisetours, the more extensive Tundra Wilderness Tour is offered complimentary.
Many of you might be put off by the 7:00 a.m. departure time. Like me
