Guided outings into the mountain wilderness
Perched so high up and away from civilisation this is an exploration experience like no other. With only the sounds of wind around the peaks, the silence is refreshing and dramatic. Feel as though you have become part of the landscape before retreating into the luxury of home comfort that Sheldon offers. Family-owned by the Sheldon’s, this chalet has five double rooms, comfortably furnished with furs and blankets for added cosiness, with two shared bathrooms. The downstairs communal living space is bright and spacious centering around a roaring fire.
The dining is exceptional, savour Alaska-sourced ingredients, such as oysters, halibut and king crab, fine wines and awe-inspiring views with every bite. With an observation deck that juts out from the main space to provide ample opportunities to see some of the clearest skies in the world and the majestic light show of the aurora borealis.
Water is sourced from the glaciers and treated on-site.
Food is Alaskan-sourced and greens are grown using a micro greenhouse.
