This is a guided remote Alaska wilderness experience in wilds of Alaska. This requires a five mile hike through the Alaska wilderness. Only for the physically fit and those that want a real Alaska experience. It is fully guided trip but guests have a private cabin. A lake offers fishing.
This is the real wilderness Alaska experience and only those that don't mind this type of experience should attempt it. No running water or electricity. A wood stove provides the heat.
Here is a review from a person-
“Here's what going to happen: you're going to hike five miles into the middle of nowhere. It will be a challenging hike -- about 2.5 or 3 hours of trudging through bushes and marshes and climbing up hills. The cabin itself sits atop a river/pond with an adorable pair of beaver neighbors. It has everything you need, including coffee and snacks and sleeping bags. On the second day, you'll do more hiking/exploring. The views will take your breath away. And you'll want to stay forever. Everything about this place is amazing. Mike (and his dog Asher) are wonderful hosts/guides. The views are unbeatable. I spent 10 days in Alaska and this was the highlight of my trip. I would recommend to anyone visiting Anchorage, Denali, or Fairbanks. My only regret was going to Denali after the cabin instead of the reverse, because I ended up being very disappointed by the views in the park. ”
You can fly round trip from Talkeetna (flight price separate) or walk 5 miles on our rustic trail through the brush and lakes to the cabin. The walk in is spectacular in scenery and worth the trip. The lake has canoes and fishing is available.
This is available June-Oct only.
Interaction with guests
This is a guided experience for hikes to the high country or you can enjoy the lake with canoes and catch some dinner. Your stamina is all that might limit you. I bring a gun for bear protection and safety. You have your own cabin for privacy. I provide the meals and sleeping bags.
Each day will include a guided hike into the high country to see animals.
Other things to note
We can day hike into the high country to see animals as caribou, moose, and bears. Or you can hang out at the lake to canoe or catch dinner.
Available June- Oct only
I supply all the meals but I cannot meet the needs of special diets for those who are gluten free, vegans, etc, no eggs, or other special needs. We can do simple vegetarian meals.
This is not a place for alcohol or those that want the 5 star comforts. There is a comfortable cabin and outhouse.
We have a spring for drinking water near the cabin.
Love the outdoors and adventure. We lived in Nepal for 4 years and love Asia . My son and I completed a project of climbing the highest mountain in each of our 50 states.
I lead a group to Nepal each year for trekking and stop in Thailand for the rest after Nepal.
