Another great way to experience the ‘true’ Alaska is to spend time at a remote lodge. ‘Remote’ generally means off the road system, out in the true Alaska wilderness. There are a number of benefits to staying at a remote lodge, but the best advantage they offer is a more personal experience. These properties are smaller in size and therefore staff is able to spend more dedicated time with each and every guest. Lodge staff are carefully chosen; they all have a true love of Alaska and love sharing it with other people.
Alaskan lodges offer a variety of adventure activities to meet all abilities and interests. These excursions are designed to really connect you with the destination in a unique way. At the end of each day the lodge chef will present you with a well-earned gourmet meal. Lodge meals typically include gourmet Alaskan fare including fresh seafood and locally-sourced ingredients.
Regardless of how you spend your time at an Alaskan lodge, you will leave with new perspective, new discoveries, and new friends – who may feel more like family.
If you are traveling with a group of people such as a multigenerational family, you might consider a full-lodge buyout of one of our featured properties. Exclusive use of a lodge just for you and your guests offers the ultimate Alaskan wilderness experience. In essence, the lodge becomes your ‘home away from home’ as all meals, activities, and accommodations are fully dedicated to you.
Alaska’s remote lodges are in high demand during our short visitor season so be sure to plan in advance to ensure availability for your preferred dates.
