The five private cabins are exactly what you need after a day out in the heart of wild Alaska. Guests will follow a rocky path to their private cabin, submerged in the living hillside, uniquely decorated with traditional Alaskan devotion to primal comforts. Plush leather furniture is ready to welcome guests after a warming shower while bright light filters through the stained glass windows. Every single piece of furnitue has been selected and flown in from the outside world, chosen especially by the Claus family. 


  • A wood-fired sauna for some relaxation and a banquet table in the main lodge where fresh meals are served daily. 
  • There are no set itineraries, guests can sit atop giant glaciers under the sun, picnic on untamed beaches or kayak through salmon rich rivers as wild bears swipe them from the shores.
