All food is included, and the dining room has the relaxed vibe of an upscale local restaurant. Dishes are created from the bountiful fresh fish and seafood available here, along with seasonal local produce.

A stay at the Lodge also includes all activities and an Adventure Menu is provided for guests to personalise their own itineraries. All activities are led by Alaskan experts, naturalists, and adventure-sport enthusiasts. Surrounded by such diverse landscapes and natural features, the opportunities are endless and include superlative fishing, sea kayaking, mountain biking, forest hiking, glacier viewing, caving, beachcombing and more.
