Alaska's spectacular scenery and wildlife make it the pride of the United States. Grizzly bears and moose roam the bush. Bald eagles and migratory waterfowl flock the skies while otters and whales frolic in waters rich with sea life. Journey with us beneath towering mountains, across verdant valleys, and along tranquil shores. Ultimately come away with a true appreciation for Alaska's expansive wilderness.

Inn Highlights: Magnificent lodges welcome us to Alaska's wilderness. Sheep Mountain Lodge offers sweeping views of the Chugach Mountains where herds of Dall sheep graze. Located in the center of the ghost town of Kennicott, the Kennicott Glacier Lodge is a replica of one of the historic mining buildings from the copper mining boomtown days. Brookside Inn B and B was originally built in 1898 by the U.S. Army at Fort Liscum and later barged to what is now "Old Town Valdez".
