|Alaska Way Off The Beaten Path With ROAM Adventures
For many visitors, Alaska is a blur, typically glimpsed from the deck of a cruise ship or perhaps a sightseeing train. The real Alaska, the largest state in the Union, a vast place that redefines the term “wilderness,” is rarely experienced. That’s even truer during Covid-19 times when there are limited ways to visit the 49th state. Most cruise companies, for example, have canceled plans to sail in Alaskan waters in 2021.
However, for a privileged few, there’s a chance to make it happen this year. The new Alaskan Lodge & Flying Adventure from ROAM Adventures is one way to get well off the beaten path and into the glorious back of beyond.
ROAM Adventures is a Canadian company that’s been around for more than three decades (ROAM is Rivers, Oceans, and Mountains) and is helmed by Brian McCutcheon, well-known in the adventure community for his forward-thinking adventure trips.
His Alaskan Lodge & Flying Adventure is a classic, a remote wilderness getaway that offers serious creature comforts, a true antidote for anyone suffering from pandemic cabin fever.
It starts with a flight or a very long car journey from Anchorage to the wilderness outpost of McCarthy. From there you fly into the hosting lodge by small plane. There are no roads or power lines leading to the lodge, Ultima Thule, which also boasts no neighbors and whose tag line is “100 miles from the end of the pavement.”
Ultima Thule is a third-generation lodge runs by the Claus family that sits on the banks of the glacier-fed Chitina River. It lies inside the largest national park in North America, Wrangell-St. Elias, with million-dollar views in every direction from the lodge. Six times the size of Yellowstone, Wrangell-St. Elias contains four major mountain ranges and has nine of the 16 highest peaks in the United States.
“This is some of the wildest true wilderness left on the earth,” McCutcheon says. “Prior to this trip, we’ve been able to provide the best awe-inspiring experiences on our Tatshenshini-Alsek expedition, which is what people think Alaska should be. Then I met the Claus clan of Ultima Thule. These folks get it and they operate remotely, which is exactly what we wanted and people want to experience in Alaska. Not cruise terminals and gift shops.”
