Guest Testimonial

Our Adventure to Iceland is ended. We had the most spectacular time of our life I think. I have no words to describe it. We felt like ‘kings’. We were treated very well and all of the guys from Land Rover and Abercrombie & Kent were amazing. Like we knew them for years. It was unforgettable. I have to go back.

Located in Wrangnell/St Elias National Park, the largest national park in the USA as well as being the largest protected land mass on earth. Arriving by plane allows you to take in the views of the wilderness and admire the pure beauty of isolation. Hidden is Ultima Thule Lodge, a little gem set by the river. Your hosts are the Claus family who founded and run this special hideaway lodge. From August - to September the northern lights can be viewed.

There is no need to plan ahead here, the philosophy is to let the wilderness guide you and form your activities and ultimately create your own adventure. From a wildlife perspective moose, bears can be seen. But it is the spectacular scenery the feeling that no one else may have ever stepped foot on that piece of land before is what makes Ultima Thule Lodge so special and a rare glimpse at the world before civilisation.

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.
