Ultima Thule Lodge - Dining Room Ultima Thule Lodge - Gourmet Meal

In Alaska you won't find any Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton hotels. Deluxe has a whole different meaning here. Our staff have coined the term “Rustic Luxury” to explain further...

In a nutshell this describes travel to a remote destination for unique experiences with an emphasis on service. With inclusions like gourmet meals, wine tastings, spa treatments and culinary demos, you’ll be pampered and catered to endlessly.

For example, stay at a fly-out wilderness lodge in the heart of Alaska’s backcountry with expert guides at your beck and call. Or have a helicopter on standby to whisk you to the top of a glacier for a picnic lunch unlike any you’ve ever imagined.  

Intimate Exploration
Choose from yacht-style small ship sailings where you can get up close with nature and wildlife -- or land expeditions led by expert naturalist guides who will take you off-the-beaten-path. The key is getting away from crowds and having an extremely personalized experience. 

Upgrades Galore
Do you want the finest travel experience possible? Just ask. We can reserve seating aboard luxurious GoldStar domed rail cars equaling unmatched views. Or maybe you’d like to splurge on the finest  suite accommodations in Talkeetna overlooking the Alaska Range and Mt. McKinley through your bedroom window. 

Exclusive Experiences
Explore Tours offers private shore excursions, chartered transfers, exlusive guide service and behind the scenes tours.. just to name a few.
