Type: Unique

Grade: Simple

Introduction

Found only an hour by car from Anchorage, the 15-cabin Knik River Lodge is a well kept secret, sheltered in the heart of the Alaskan wilderness. With all cabins supplied with private bathrooms, hot showers, TV & DVD player, microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker and wifi, the Knik River Lodge is ideally located close enough to many of Alaska's highlights, yet tucked away in its own corner of the wilderness.

With a full deck fronting each cabin, there is plenty of space to relax while watching out for the area's resident moose and dall sheep, or listening for the great horned owl in his favourite lookout tree. A variety of activities are available to fill the day, including dog sledding, helicopter tours and glacier hiking and climbing. Meals are served in a large yurt, which is elegantly furnished with candle lanterns, the ideal place to enjoy a meal before heading out into the wilderness. This property is only open in the summer months.
