Although located just 60 miles east of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, the lodge can only be reached by helicopter or planes that land on water (or ice in the winter months). You can depart for the lodge from the Lake Hood Airport Base in Anchorage by either plane or helicopter, and arrive about 35 minutes later. Or you can be picked up from other locations as you choose, including locations in the Lower 48 states via our Pilatus PC-12 aircraft.
