Luxury Lodges in Alaska

Remote wilderness in the Far North

Alaska’s Arctic region is a vast, sparsely populated area where caribou outnumber people. Here you will find traditional Inuit villages as well as untamed national parks; and wildlife including, muskoxen, bears and moose. One highway links this remote region to the rest of Alaska and most destinations in the Far North are accessible only by plane. Tours of the region normally start from Fairbanks or Anchorage.

Located halfway between Fairbanks and Anchorage is the famous Denali National Park, home to the “roof of North America.” Although the park revolves around snow capped Denali, the wild rivers and glaciers, boreal forest and tundra are just as inspiring.

Fantastic views of the Northern Lights

Alaska is also one of the best places in the world to view the Northern Lights. The viewing season lasts almost seven months, with Alaskan nights dark enough to showcase the auroras between mid-August through to mid-April.

One of the best places to view the lights is Sheldon Chalet. It’s unique location at 63 degrees north latitude and 6,000ft (±1820 metres) elevation means the troposphere is some of the thinnest on the planet; which allows you to see the aurora borealis more often and brighter than elsewhere. There are also plenty of other activities to experience during your stay, from glacier treks and mountaineering to star-gazing and sight-seeing flights.
