Caribou Cabin

Caribou Cabin

a 50 minute flight takes you 100 miles north of Iniakuk Lodge to the Continental Divide. Here, the Western Arctic Caribou Herd can be seen migrating through the blazing fall colors of August and watch the Northern Lights dance overhead from the warmth of your bed.This remote location is not for everyone, but it is perfect for those interested in a truly adventurous, independent wilderness experience knowing a warm cabin and hot meal await at the end of each day’s hiking.

The Caribou Cabin is a three-room ranch house built out of imported cedar logs with a panoramic view of the Alatna Valley. It accommodates two per room with a separate cookhouse, bathhouse and privy out back. A wood stove and thermostat-controlled heating system warms cool August nights. This is the only destination of its kind in Alaska combining the incredible vastness of open tundra, migrating caribou, wolves, grizzly bear, moose, musk ox and the comfort of a crackling wood stove and delicious meals. Situated far above timberline, even firewood must make a 100-mile journey.

A day’s hiking starts with a big breakfast, hot coffee and fresh, homemade bread. No freeze-dried food at this table. Dinners and desserts are selected by Iniakuk Lake Wilderness Lodge and customized to accompany each trip. Every fitness level can be accommodated and all services are adjusted to individual needs. While it is possible to make a day’s hike of 8-10 miles, the openness of the tundra region allows for incredible wildlife viewing right off the front porch.
