2 | WINTERLAKE LODGE, AK
After breakfast a private transfer will transport you to Lake Hood, where your seaplane will be waiting. A scenic 1-hour flight will deliver you to Finger Lake, set amongst the Tordrillo Mountains. Steeped in history, Winterlake Lodge is perched on fifteen acres along mile 198 of the Iditarod trail, and acts as a checkpoint during the race itself. Adventures at the lodge abound, and the small number of guests at any given time provide authentic connections between visitors and hosts. Accommodations are at Winterlake Lodge in a Cabin.
3-4 | WINTERLAKE LODGE, AK
Today you’ll take to the skies in a helicopter exploration, led by your expert pilot-guide. The day will be tailored just for you, depending on the conditions, your interests and physical abilities. Activities may include hiking to a glacier ridge, glacier dog sledding, glacier trekking and ice climbing, or even rafting remote rivers. One of our favorite helicopter led activities is heli-fishing, where expert guides deliver you to remote and untouched rivers and streams for the ultimate chance to reel in your supper! Accommodations are at Winterlake Lodge in a Cabin.
On your fourth day, engage in any number of activities at the Lodge: hike along the historic Iditarod Sled Dog Trail, or along Wolverine Ridge, which offers views of Denali and the chance to spot black bears, moose, and wolves; go kayaking or canoeing; take a yoga class or therapeutic massage; or enjoy a cooking class with the resident chef or perhaps lodge owner, Kirsten Dixon. Accommodations are at Winterlake Lodge, in a Cabin.
5 | SEA MIST YACHT
After breakfast you’ll board a seaplane flight bound for Anchorage. Upon your arrival, your driver will meet you for your private transfer to Whittier (up to 5 hrs) where you’ll board the Sea Mist yacht. Your four-day/three-night charter will take you to secluded coves, beaches and bays as you spot marine life, go kayaking and canoeing, and enjoy the scenery and gourmet meals that a private yacht charter provides. Accommodations are aboard the Sea Mist.
6-7 | SEA MIST YACHT
While aboard the Sea Mist you’ll have plenty of opportunities for adventure and exploration. From your comfortable (and unique) vantage point aboard the Sea Mist, you’ll enjoy whale watching, looking for otters, sea lions, seals and porpoises. If you’re feeling active, try kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding with the stunning Alaska scenery as your backdrop! Delight in gourmet cuisine made fresh for you by your onboard chef or curl up in the main salon with a good book – the options are endless. Accommodations are aboard the Sea Mist.
