Ultima Thule is a rustic lodge passed through three generations of the Claus family that holds adventure close to its heart. Tucked into the hillside amidst 24 million acres of protected Alaskan wilderness, the lodge offers guests the chance to switch off from the real world and enter remote areas untouched by others.

Will, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

Five private cabins built with local timber adopt a rustic, homely, Alaskan theme by incorporating stained glass windows, cherry writing desks and bearskin rugs.

The dining room at the lodge is graced by the wafting scent of fresh bread and pastries and in the evenings meals featuring fresh Alaskan game and locally caught fish are served to the long banquet table.

The onsite cedar sauna is a great way to warm up after a day facing the elements and, as the lodge accommodates only 12 guests at a time, facilities are never overcrowded.

Guests can enjoy use of the lodge's five private propeller planes (one of which featured in a Charlton Heston film) to go skiing, hiking, fishing or on a flight safari. After, return to the lodge, smell the scent of burning wood in the air and know the fires have been lit and your cosy abode awaits.

Why we love it

The lodge loves to keep things local and even the water is freshly melted from the glaciers!
