While most of our expeditions to Alaska are cruises through the stunning Inner Passage and Alaska's impressive coastal destinations, we do feature several hand-chosen lodges tucked away in the heart of this northern wilderness if you prefer a land-based option. There are a lot of advantages to staying in a lodge rather than a boat, like having more time to explore one specific area, enjoying more spacious accommodations, and getting a good night's rest without the rocking of the ship. If this sounds like your preference, then consider one of these great lodges. Tutka Bay & Winterlake Lodges offer chances for coldwater snorkeling, deep sea fishing, and exploration of Katmai National Park. Or explore the wonders of Denali National Park from the comforts of the Denali Backcountry Lodge or Camp Denali & North Face Lodge.
