About Princess Alaska Lodges and Rail Tours

Princess Lodges, a division of Princess Cruises, is responsible for the operation of Alaska Land Tours and the land portion of Cruisetours. Founded in 1972 and headquartered in Seattle, Washington, the company offers a wide variety of Alaska land tours and Alaska train tours in conjunction with Princess' Alaska cruises, providing visitors with the best ways to see the majestic “Land of the Midnight Sun” — by land and by sea.

The largest cruise and tour operator in Alaska, Princess gives travelers the opportunity to combine a Gulf of Alaska cruise with the interior of Alaska experience. The “land” portion of our cruisetours include the state's most popular areas, such as Anchorage, Denali National Park, Copper River, the Kenai Peninsula, and Prudhoe Bay.

Princess also owns and operates five wilderness lodge properties and several luxury railcars known as Princess Rail.
