Kennicott Glacier Lodge is a a welcome retreat located in the middle of the largest swath of designated wilderness in the United States, as well as the only lodge located in the historic copper mining town of Kennicott. Stay in the main lodge or the newer south wing for a comfortable room and access to fantastic cuisine in the dining hall. Your days in Kennicott can be spent on flight safari adventures, or setting out on any number of hiking trails in the region. Root Glacier, one of the most accessible glaciers in the US, is located nearby. Mountain biking and river rafting options are available, as well.
The main lodge offers mountain view and forest view rooms for travelers. These all include shared bathroom facilities that are private enclosed spaces. The newer rooms in the south wing offer private en-suite bathrooms. The dining area serves a light continental breakfast or full buffet breakfast depending on the guests' preference. Lunch and dinner are also available.
The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
