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…
Arrive into Anchorage or the quaint town of Talkeetna and check into your hotel. The rest of the day is spent at your leisure, exploring your surroundings and preparing for your upcoming adventure.
Arrive at Sheldon Chalet in style. Taking off in a private helicopter, enjoy a breathtaking flight out to the chalet over Alaska’s pristine landscape. Step onto the deck of the chalet as you are greeted with champagne. Meet your staff and settle in to discuss the plans for your adventure with world-class guides, then let the peace and solitude wash over you as you spend your first evening under the stars.
