Princess Cruises announced 2018 programming to be featured at the custom designed wilderness treehouse of the line located at Mt.McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge.

The treehouse is the newest addition to the passenger experience which allows guests a chance to view Denali, the highest peak of North America, while socializing with fellow travelers and enjoying themed activities amongst the trees.

The treehouse was created during an episode of the hit Animal Planet show "Treehouse Masters," in association with Discovery Communications, which premiered in the season finale, fall 2017.

It was the first-ever treehouse, designed and built in Alaska by Pete Nelson, star of the hit TV series. As it is one of the highest north-facing viewing areas on land, the treehouse, powered by solar panels, provides Princess passengers a one-of-a-kind experience to see Denali's south face from atop the trees.

At approx 500 ft2, travelers can access the treehouse via hiking the short "hill trail loop" as well as be rewarded with ultimate Denali view.
