Description

The Alaska wilderness lodge retreat is the ultimate 8-day/7-night Alaskan experience. A three-lodge program with stays at Winterlake Lodge (named one of America’s best by Travel + Leisure magazine) Tutka Bay Lodge and Redoubt Bay Lodge, provides lots of opportunity for enjoying pristine Alaskan backcountry—walk on a glacier, check out the Iditarod trail, sportfish by helicopter, spot black bears and more. Everywhere, hikes and sea kayaking allow access to exquisite landscapes and chances to spot wildlife such as whales, sea otters, moose, bears, and wolves. Float planes deliver you from one perfectly rustic lodge to the next, and days offer endless opportunities for communing with nature—either from a deck chair on your private log cabin, wine glass in hand, or through physically rigorous activities.
