Take a private flight to the WrangellSt. Elias region of Alaska. At five million hectares, it could fit Switzerland and both Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks within its borders! The next four days you'll call Ultima Thule Lodge home as private bush pilots take you on excursions throughout the region. Explore an abandoned gold mine, kayak and fish for salmon in a glacial river or hike in pursuit of Dall sheep across a mountain ridge. Still looking for adventure? Why not land in the middle of the largest nonpolar glacier in the world, for an undisturbed view of the Earth's largest pile of rock and ice, Mt. Logan. Lodge in Alaskan style luxury cabins with beautiful gardens. Your stay is full board and meals are prepared fresh daily by your hosts.

Best time to be there
Make the most of long days and the best weather by travelling between June and September during this time the days are long (19 hours of daylight in June) and nature is in full bloom. Sadly the weather in this part of the world isn't predictable. During the summertime days can be pleasantly warm, even hot, but this can be followed in equal measure by rain, fog and then sun again.
Seattle (10 hrs) and then onto Anchorage (3 hrs 40) or Juneau (2 hrs 30)
GMT -8 hours
ESTA Visa required for UK Passport Holders
Travel insurance is highly recommended as health bills can be high in the USA.
