Extending from the Canadian Yukon Territory to the Pacific Ocean, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is part of the larger mass of protected land on earth. Although the land around Ultima Thule Lodge is located in a national park, it is completely inaccessible and almost completely unvisited. There is no route and There is only one way to get there: the airplane. The Claus family and their experienced guides can help you find the perfect activity to match your level of experience and your interest in a customized trip to Alaska. Every day is unique. One day you can fly exploring abandoned gold mine. One day kayaking and salmon fishing in a glacial river. Another hike in pursuit of Dall sheep in a mountain peak. The next day you land in the middle of the largest glacier in the world, the Bagley Icefield for a peaceful view of the largest mass of rock and ice, Mount Logan. If you want, Paul Claus will make you fly over the summit of Mount St. Elias, the largest vertical rock face on Earth. You will see the snowy peak of Elias, then dive down on the ice fields above the grassy plains, and glide to the Pacific Ocean. You can land on the beach and enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch prepared by Donna Claus. Sit on an iceberg in the sun and watch the huge chunks of glacier ice making waves. There is no route to plan ahead here, no fixed schedule for the program of activities. This is an adventure in its purest form, in accordance with the laws of nature and admire its grandeur with respect. Every evening you return to Ultima Thule lodge in your private cabin. Each cabin has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a furnished balcony overlooking the Chitina River and surrounding mountain area. There is also a sauna / spa. The dining room is in the main building of the lodge and serves gourmet meals prepared with fresh ingredients and Alaska. Ultima Thule Lodge has a large organic garden on site where most of the vegetables grow. Salmon and game are also harvested locally.
