Guides here let nature lead us, not the other way around, so every day at Ultima Thule is different.

The long, brilliant days of an Alaskan summer are bursting with life. Here in the heart of the wilderness, one hundred miles from the end of the road, bears roam, moose feast on wild vegetation, Dall sheep tread their ancient mountain paths and eagles soar from cliff to spruce. Spend a day exploring this remote and impressive area of natural beauty and walk along paths where no other has even stepped before.Every customised adventure-filled experience is included in your stay, and guests return to the beautiful lodge at the end of each day to unwind in the wood-burning cedar hot tub, before enjoying a home-cooked, fresh and delicious evening meal.
