Real. Wild. Raw.

Ultima Thule is for people who want to experience the real Alaska. People who are craving wild places and raw experiences. To escape, for a moment into nature and come away with memories that will last a lifetime.

It is for travelers who are looking for authentic experiences and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and feet wet. Adventurers who want to be left in awe of nature and can appreciate the value of a place where the mountains are still without names. 

They call it the land beyond – the place of the unknown.

Aviation Legacy

The art of flight goes back 3 generations at Ultima Thule.

 

Ultima Thule is an adventure centric wilderness outpost inside the vast Wrangell/St. Elias Mountains. In a wilderness area where there are no roads, no maintained trails - it is all about the combination of land-based and bush plane powered adventures.

We sit on the banks of a raging glacier river inside the largest National Park in North America, part of UNESCO World Heritage Monument and the largest protected land mass on earth. Weather dictates our days and stays are available May-September.

Traveling so far to get here is part of the experience. Fly into Anchorage and we can help you arrange a seat on the shared flight charter bound for McCarthy. We'll see you there!

New places have a way of surprising us if we leave our preconceived notions at home and invite unpredictability to be our travel companion.

AT HOME IN THE REMOTE & WILD

 

After a long afternoon of exploring, hiking, or flying, you make your way up to the wilderness lodge's wood-fired sauna and hot tub. The tendrils of fragrant smoke billowing out of the chimney tell you the crew has lit the fire and comfort awaits you inside.

The Story of a Unique Alaskan Lodge


Ultima Thule is a place to gather family and friends or to visit alone and discover kinship with other travelers. 

“People come here and they connect,” says Ultima Thule’s Donna Claus. “People come here with friends and family, and they leave together with memories they will never forget. Experiences create lasting bonds.”
