Exclusive Alaska at Sheldon Chalet

Combine sheer luxury with true wilderness on this extraordinary getaway to Denali National Park, where you'll spend four nights in a mountaintop chalet indulging in fine wines, sumptuous cuisine and unparalleled vistas, with plenty of time for skiing, snowshoeing, stargazing and helicopter flights thrown in for good measure.

Venture into the mountains of Alaska to stay in exclusive luxury. Sheldon Chalet was designed for wilderness explorers who want adventure, solitude, and spectacular views. Perched right in the middle of the Don Sheldon Amphitheatre, the chalet is set on 4.9 acres of private grounds at an elevation of 5,800 ft, with views over Denali and some of the clearest skies for Aurora viewing that you’ll find anywhere in Alaska.

With accommodation for just 10 people, the chalet is the perfect location for a getaway with family or friends, and is available for private groups, or as an extension to a longer Alaska itinerary. Explore the mountains by helicopter, enjoy gourmet glacier picnics, skiing around the nunatak, sledding on Denali, or simply relaxing on the deck with a blazing fire and the Aurora Borealis lighting up the sky…



  • Explore the mountain range by private helicopter.
  • The Ruth Glacier surrounds the nunatak; venture onto the glacier for an ice trek.
  • Watch the Northern Lights across the mountaintops under a clear sky, miles away from light pollution.
  • Snowshoe to the original mountain house constructed in 1966 to enjoy a gourmet picnic.
