Accessible only by floatplane in summer or ski-plane in snow-blanketed winter, you’ll descend towards Winterlake Lodge with the crystalline waters of Finger Lake and views of Mount Denali vying for your camera lens.
You’ll walk into a timber triangle that encloses this sustainable adventure travel lodge and welcomes you in. A wraparound veranda ensures a comfortable outdoor perch while you’re in situ, and your spacious personal cabin—made cozy with local Alaskan furnishings—also supplies meditative outlooks over running river and rugged peak. Keep an eye out for bears, moose, beavers, wolves, loons, swans, and river otters that are all flourishing in the area.
Relax in the main lodge talking to fellow travelers, take some time out for yoga amid the wildflowers, or retreat to one of the many snug corners with a book from the library. Wine and cheese are served every evening, while the main meals make the most of the wealth of Alaska’s wild larder alongside the myriad vegetables grown in the kitchen gardens.
