Within the Wild - Winterlake Lodge

A private paradise tucked away in Alaska's wild interior

Alaska’s premier hotelier Within the Wild can be best described in one word: authentic. Surrounded by forest to the north and facing a quiet and lovely lake to the south, Winterlake  Lodge offers the opportunity to explore the dramatic mountain life of Alaska. Winterlake is nestled alongside a one-mile lake that is home to nesting loons and swans. Nearby sits the dramatic Tordrillo Mountains and Rainy Pass. A helicopter ride through Alaska’s wild interior gives the opportunity to touch earth that has never before been visited by humans. As one of the few fly-in lodges open nearly all year in Alaska, Winterlake gives visitors the rare opportunity to experience America’s last frontier throughout the seasons.
