Join Us

Join the Crew at Alaska's One-of-a-Kind, Flight Safari Lodge. Ultima Thule, defined as ‘the land remote beyond reckoning,’ was built from the understanding that indulging creature comforts and overwhelming the senses are ideal ingredients for once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The lodge lies deep in the Alaskan wilderness, surrounded by Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, part of the largest protected landmass on earth and sits on the mighty Chitina river a hundred miles from paved roads.

Ultima Thule is first and foremost a family-owned and operated company with foundational values of hard work and service. The lodge is an outpost of civilization in the heart of the true wilderness and as such, relies on the skills and dedication of each person to maintain the needs of the community.

Our crew members consist of people who are passionate about wild places, committed to going above and beyond to create unforgettable experiences and motivated by the desire to grow as individuals while building strong community connections.

Each person wears many hats throughout a season and works alongside all the crew and family members to ensure that our small number of clients receive first-class service and impeccable comfort during their visit to the “the middle of nowhere”.

Do you have a special skill or unique ability that would be beneficial to a remote, off the grid, adventure and hospitality company?


Are you a mature, professional couple looking for a unique opportunity that allows you to work side by side?

Are you a highly motivated individual looking for a remote living lifestyle where your natural abilities are put use and you learn new skills every day?

Are you interested in being part of a highly functioning team, in a small community dedicated to customer service and wilderness experience?

Throughout the year we always keep our eyes out for talented individuals. No matter the season, if you are interested in working with us in the future, let us know!




Possible seasonal positions include:

Dishwashing and House Keeping

LIVING at Ultima Thule: 

For lodge-based jobs, meals and lodging are provided. We eat hearty/healthy meals with lots of fresh veggies and wild-harvested fish and game – due to our remote location and demands on the kitchen staff we are not always able to accommodate special dietary needs for crew members. Dorm style housing is provided and crew members may share a room with a person of the same gender. A crew sauna/bathhouse is also provided. This is a remote Alaskan setting and there is no indoor plumbing in the crew house. Crew members enjoy getting out for hikes and camping adventures on down days, however, the guest experience is the paramount focus and priority. Workdays are long and enthusiasm is always expected. 

While we highly encourage folks to apply who love being in and experiencing nature we kindly remind all applicants that being an employee of our lodge does not mean that you will be having the same experience in the surroundings as our guests enjoy. Each applicant is asked to mindfully consider if the lifestyle and challenges are right for them before pursuing a position.

If you do think this might be the experience for you, we look forward to hearing from you soon! Please send us the completed application below and a cover letter telling us more about yourself and why you feel that Ultima Thule is a good fit for you at No phone calls. We will respond for follow up as needed.
