Riverboat Discovery Cruise

The Riverboat Discovery Cruise

Riverboat Discovery Sternwheeler tour Fairbanks Princess Riverside Lodge

Enjoy a cruise on the Chena and Tanana rivers aboard an authentic sternwheeler and watch a bush pilot takeoff and land from a riverbank landing strip. From late June through early August, these teem waters teem with salmon. As the paddle wheel continues to churn the waters, witness the "weddings of the rivers". When the clear waters of the Chena meet the glacier-fed Tanana, the result is clouds of silt that rise and fall over the river. Then, you'll make a stop at the home of a later four-time Iditarod champion, meet some winning sled dogs and witness a sled-dog demonstration. Next, you will disembark the sternwheeler for a guided tour through a replica of an Athabascan Indian village where you will learn in depth about Native Alaskan Village life.
