Because Alaska’s most amazing experiences take place in remote locations, your stay at Winterlake Lodge includes at least one adventure by helicopter. Depending on your specific interests, options may include:
Join your pilot and guide for a day of river fly fishing – all gear included. Get dropped at a remote river near the lodge to fish for salmon, Dolly Varden, and rainbow trout. Enjoy a delicious “river lunch” prepared by the lodge chef.
Board a Robinson R-44 helicopter with your guide and take a quick trip to the summit of Wolverine ridge or any of the surrounding area mountains or the Tordrillo range. Spend the day hiking along the ridge, exploring the tundra ecosystem, watching for caribou, grizzly bears, and wolf trails. OR – Hike to the summit from the lodge and get picked up at the top for a quick ride back down for dinner.
Winterlake Lodge offers trekking, Nordic skiing, and snowshoeing in the summertime! Adventurous guests can overnight at the glacier camp or simply enjoy the view at 5,000ft, the thousands of different shades of blue and exploring a thousand year old glacier.
Happy River Float
Fly from the lodge to meet your river guide and gear on the Happy River. Meander along this rarely visited glacier fed river looking for bears, eagles, Dall sheep, salmon or just enjoying the views. This is a favorite spot. Enjoy a river lunch prepared by lodge chefs.
