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.

Rediscovering and Prioritizing Traditional Foodways on Fogo Island, Newfoundland

Getting away from it all is Fogo Island’s speciality. An island off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada in the North Atlantic Ocean, Fogo Island is a place guided and dictated by nature. With seven seasons, the island shifts and changes depending on the time of year but what remains constant is its power to connect people with what is essential.
