Discover a real Alaskan way of life, and Alaskan hospitality. As your flight
departs from Anchorage, see the beautiful city unfold below and watch as Sleeping Lady
Mountain becomes closer. During the summer months, your pilot will fly along the shoreline
of Cook Inlet to look for Beluga Whales as we head to the lodge. On extremely clear days,
Mount McKinley, and the volcanoes can be seen immediately after takeoff giving a splendid
example of how the Alaska Range of mountains slices through the Great State of Alaska.
Continuing towards Flathorn Lake, look below for moose, bear, and swans as
your pilot/guide explains the geology and history of the area. After landing at Viewpoint
Lodge, you will be greeted by the Spickler family; Jim, Diane and their twin daughters Amy
and Rachel. You can enjoy a walk on the sandy beach, or have the twins take you on a
4-wheeler ATV adventure on the Iditarod Trail to look for booties from the Iditarod mushers
dogs, and wander through some rugged trails in the woods surrounding the beautiful
Flathorn Lake. A canoe is available, as well, for those that want to paddle around the lake,
and explore on your own for moose or bear, or just get away from the lodge.
Complete your getaway with a scenic flight to Mt. McKinley on either the flight to the lodge, or
on the return to Anchorage and see Denali, "The Great One". Truly the highlight of your vacation
to the Far North.
