Alaska Wilderness Lodges

Step back from your busy Alaska travels with an overnight stay at a wilderness lodge. Known for remote locations that allow guests to unplug and relax, these lodges are nonetheless as comfortable as larger properties on the beaten path. Including a wilderness lodge in your Alaska trip assures you the opportunity to experience true Alaskan hospitality in a setting many visitors miss. Alaska Tour & Travel can assist guests in creating a customized trip package that includes wilderness lodges.

If Denali National Park is at the top of your Alaska destination list, there are two distinctive opportunities for wilderness lodging. Kantishna Roadhouse is located at the end of the 90-mile Park Road. The roadhouse is a quiet, simple retreat, with ample opportunities to hike, bike, fish, pan for gold, and disconnect. A bus tour to Kantishna is included in every stay along with guided hikes, all meals, and activities.

The Denali Backcountry Lodge is tucked along the banks of Moose Creek at the end of the Park Road. The whole property is set amongst the soundscape of rushing water and wind in the trees. There are local trails to hike, bikes to rent, and shuttles to beautiful Wonder Lake available.
