Although Alaska contains the largest protected wilderness on earth, most adventurers never get past over-crowded Denali or, at best, McCarthy. The Wrangell Mountains are notoriously dangerous and difficult to navigate on foot, even in summer. The Chitina River is braided into a network of intertwined currents and sandbars that stretch miles across. In most places, hikers can’t ford it on foot.
But, with the Claus family’s celebrated gift for landing gently in wild places, you can touch this wilderness.
There is no added, or hourly, charter cost for flying – it’s part of the experience. There is really no other way to see this land.
Flight time is part of your Ultima Thule experience. We never charge our guests for a hop on the plane to explore some piece of the wilderness around us.
But in addition to that, throughout the year, we conduct special charter trips for adventurers on a whole different level.
Join us for the Iditarod and follow the mushers by air, from Anchorage to Nome, camping each night in luxury.
Ski pristine backcountry powder that no human being has ever skied before.
Book a private climbing charter for your group, or join our “Best of Alaska” tour and watch the midnight sun parade in Nome.
