Holland America Line guests on Alaska Land+Sea Journeys will soon be able to shop at an exclusive Filson pop-up store that will open at Denali Square in time for the summer 2017 cruise season. Located at the McKinley Chalet Resort in Denali National Park, Filson's first Alaska outpost will offer a custom collection of its core line of outerwear, bags and accessories, in addition to an expanded collection of hats, T-shirts and lightweight shirts. The Seattle-based company will set its pop-up shop among retail shops that offer local goods, as well as an artist-in-residence cabin where Alaska natives and local artists display their work.
Denali Square is at the heart of the McKinley Chalet Resort, which provides accommodations for guests on Holland America Line’s Land+Sea Journeys that combine an Alaska cruise with an overland tour to Denali National Park and beyond. Denali Square is centrally located between the main part of the property, containing the reception hall, dining facilities and guest rooms, and the riverfront guest rooms that provide views of the Nenana River.
The square serves as a gathering area to relax, shop, dine and enjoy entertainment. At the center of Denali Square is an amphitheater with a covered performance stage and bench seating for guests to enjoy a variety of local shows, ranger talks and demonstrations. Those wanting to grab a drink or listen to live music can visit Gold Nugget Saloon, home to the Music of Denali Dinner Theater that becomes a bar and music venue after the show. There are also onsite fire pits for cold evenings and walking paths around the property.
