Ultima Thule Lodge

USA: Alaska

The largest protected land-mass on earth is covered in fresh powder during winter and waiting for you to lay down the first tracks.

"Ski touring in the backcountry paradise Alaska"

Accessible only by plane the specially designed Ultima Thule Lodge gives you direct access to backcountry paradise in Alaska. The beautiful lodge sits on the shores of the Chitina River, right in the heart of the wilderness. The nearest road is over 100 miles away so you are guaranteed crowd-free ski touring.

Because heli-skiing is not permitted in the Wrangell St. Elias national park all skiing is plane-assisted. You’ll have access to massive expanses of terrain and all the powder you could dream of. Up here the sun doesn’t set in winter so you can spend even longer carving perfect turn after perfect turn.

"Wrangell St. Elias national park has plane-assisted skiing"

After skiing, hiking and fishing you can relax back at the lodge’s wood-fired sauna. Refuel on freshly prepared gourmet meals each evening at the main lodge with foods sourced locally and from the organic garden onsite. Stay in your own private cabin built using local timber and constructed on a small hill overlooking the river. Each handcrafted cabin has two bedrooms, a bathroom and lounge area.

Packages include accommodation, meals, access to the spa, guide services, unrestricted bush plane flights, safety gear and complimentary house wines and Alaskan craft beers. For more information and to book your Alaskan adventure give the team at Luex a call.
