Kenai Peninsula
This remote Alaskan property is surrounded by a million acres of designated wilderness in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and is only accessible by boat. Once a turn-of-the-century hunting lodge, the Kenai Backcountry Lodge was refurbished in 1995. Located on a glacier-carved lake with only 9 guest cabins, the lodge is a private piece of Alaska. The entire lodge and its facilities operates off of hydroelectric power generated from an alpine stream.
2 nights
Kenai Fjords National Park
The only lodge located in Kenai Fjords National Park and situated on the shores of a protected lagoon in full view of Pedersen Glacier, the Glacier Lodge offers an unprecedented way to experience Kenai Fjords National Park. Featuring an elegantly rustic main Lodge and sixteen nicely-appointed cabins, the Lodge pairs modern comfort with the wilds of remote Alaska. The Lodge resides within the 1700 acre Pedersen Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary. These heritage lands, owned by Port Graham Native Corporation, represent a small portion of the ancestral homeland of the Alutiiq people that once lived along and roamed the entire coast of Southcentral Alaska. The main lodge offers amazing nature views through large viewing windows. Curious sea otters and seals frequent the lagoon, just steps from the main lodge deck. In a nearby meadow, bears, mountain goats and other wildlife are sometimes seen - from a safe distance.
