In an effort to ensure that our family and crew members are able to provide absolutely unique and genuine experiences for each guest from the first of the season to the last, we offer limited availability, focusing on quality over quantity. Our priority is making sure each guest receives above and beyond service, quality, and experience.

Each experience is unique and embodies the truest sense of adventure.

Ultima Thule Lodge is the full-time home of the Claus Family and their talented team where weekends are reserved for personal use.

When you book an Owner's Weekend, it is a private, fully customized, one-of-a-kind experience where the Thule family and crew focus their attention solely on you, your family, friends, and fellow adventurers. The Lodge is an intimate setting for the wildest adventures. The Clauses invite you to make yourself truly at home in the middle of nowhere with our Ultima Thule Family.

Special Dietary Requests

 

Our inclusive menu is pre-set utilizing seasonal and local ingredients and will accommodate vegetarian options. Due to the structure of our stock on hand and meal execution we are able to provide further meal customization requests at a rate of $400-$850 (depending on the type of request),  per person for the duration of the visit. Advise at the time of booking if you have requests for Gluten Free, Vegan, Kosher, Non-Dairy, Special Diets or any type of custom meal package.  Advance notice is required.

Children 

 

Children aged 6 years and older are welcome to accompany their families; however, we are not able to offer discounted rates because each passenger will require their own seat in the aircraft. Parents are responsible for their children and must ensure they follow guide or lodge personnel instructions at all times. Childcare is not available at the lodge or during guided activities.

Booking Terms and Policies

For 2022 stays, we are requiring all guests to have proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID viral test within 72 hours of arrival. This policy may be updated as we continue to monitor the situation and guidance from government agencies.

A 50% deposit is due at the time of booking to confirm the reservation. The balance is due 120 days in advance of arrival. Availability is not guaranteed until the deposit is received.

Payments must be received within 10 days of the invoice issued. Reservations and payments may be forfeit if not received on time.

All payments are strictly non-refundable. Due to our short season of operation and the advance overhead costs of remote operations, we have a clear NO REFUND POLICY on deposits or full payment for any reason. For COVID-related cancellations, the no-refund cancellation policy remains. However, if government-mandated travel restrictions make it impossible for a guest to travel to Ultima Thule, then a guest can transfer their reservation to the next season. This will only be determined by the lodge 30 days prior to the expected arrival date.

Dates can be changed during the same operational year without penalty, based on our availability. Bookings may not be rolled over to the following year.

We are not responsible for any delays or cancellations due to weather, circumstances beyond our control or any unforeseen changes or alterations to a reservation. We strongly recommend trip insurance. Please protect your investment and shop around for the policy that best suits your needs.

Credit card transactions may be subject to 3.75% service charge.

Suggested gratuities may be included in the final bill at the lodge or may be pre-paid upon request.

Clients understand that daily adventures may involve terrain that is rocky, sandy, soft, uneven, brushy, challenging, and there will be no trails.

Ultima Thule, Inc. is required to follow Federal Aviation Administration restrictions on weight for each aircraft. For this reason, we require accurate weights from each client at the time of booking and prior to arrival.
