5 Days / 4 Nights Departing Chitina or McCarthy
From USD$8,550 per person
View map

Ultima Thule, defined as ‘the land remote beyond reckoning,’ was built from the realization that indulging creature comforts and overwhelming the senses are ideal ingredients for once-in-a-lifetime experiences. This unique and timeless Lodge has adopted a style of “no roughing it” luxury that only enhances the already indescribable setting. Yet the lodge is simply the basecamp in a place where adventure is not dictated by itineraries.

Ultima Thule, defined as ‘the land remote beyond reckoning,’ was built from the realization that indulging creature comforts and overwhelming the senses are ideal ingredients for once-in-a-lifetime experiences. This unique and timeless Lodge has adopted a style of “no roughing it” luxury that only enhances the already indescribable setting. Yet the lodge is simply the basecamp in a place where adventure is not dictated by itineraries.

Each day, the weather is considered, and safari flight adventures begin. The light bush airplanes are specifically designed to access off the beaten path places while ensuring minimal impact to the natural world and a heightened level of personal experience. Guests find themselves in a world removed from civilization and the press of humanity while stopping for lunch in the middle of the largest (non-polar) glacier on earth; on top of a high alpine plateau to walk among arctic flowers and sample wild berries; next to a salmon stream fishing alongside grizzly bears, or soaring among 14 - 18,000 foot peaks along the way to the Pacific coastline to watch 1000 year old glacier ice crash into the surf.

In the midst of all this grandeur, the thing that makes Ultima Thule truly special is the authenticity experienced on a human level. Here guests are welcomed into the daily lives of the Claus’s – A family living the dream of wilderness adventure and stewardship in a land that truly is beyond.

Ultima Thule Lodge offers a library, yoga and stretching areas, multi-level decks with furniture, flower gardens and quiet spaces, fire pits, cedar sauna, wood-fired hot tub, massage and meditation house, and an open kitchen with dining room. The lodge holds a maximum of 14 guests. Each private cabin is uniquely appointed, with elegant Craftsman furniture and a quintessentially Alaskan devotion to primal comforts. Stained glass windows, a cherry writing desk, plush leather furniture. Each cabin has a unique arrangement, some with two bedrooms, one room boasting an over-stuffed king size feather bed, a full bathroom and an amply furnished sitting room with amazing views of the Chitina River and surrounding mountains.

There is no day to day itinerary at Ultima Thule Lodge, however daily flight safari adventures are all included. The options for the day will discussed with clients daily. Four days of flying and wilderness adventures are included. Guests arrive at the lodge between 4:00pm - 5:00pm. Guests depart the lodge for a final morning adventure before heading back to McCarthy at around 3.00pm with an approximate arrival in McCarthy at 3.30pm.
