Once thought to be accessed only by cruise ships, a true Alaskan experience is now available to adventure-seekers who want to get off the beaten path and enjoy unrivaled beauty and fully-customized, once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Summer vacations at Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, just a 45-minute float plane ride from Anchorage, include wildlife viewing, outdoor adventures, gourmet meals and access to millions of acres of untouched Alaskan wilderness – the world’s most spectacular outdoor playground where a helicopter serves as a personal chauffer to everything that Alaska has to offer. The lodge has something for every member of a family or group, no matter their age, fitness level or experience.
From July through mid-September, guests choose from world-class fishing, spectacular glacial hiking, whitewater rafting and kayaking, and unrivaled helicopter mountain biking and camping excursions that drop guests into the most spectacular parts of the Tordrillo Mountain Range with expert guides. Sky trekking tours take guests to Denali and Katmai National Parks and provide in-flight wildlife viewing of grizzly bears, moose, lynx and more.
Just steps from the lodge, lake activities including stand-up paddle boarding, water skiing, wake surfing, fishing, kayaking and foil boarding are available.
The Tordrillo Mountain Lodge owners – Olympic gold medalist Tommy Moe and fellow heli-ski veterans Mike Overcast and Mike Rheam – invested in state-of-the-art equipment to provide helicopter-access to millions of acres of fat tire mountain biking terrain for guests. Riders can choose a descent or ascent of virtually any length or difficulty, making this experience perfect for all levels of skill or expertise. Top-of-the-line safety gear and experienced guides are included.
Tordrillo Mountain Lodge recently invested $10 million into guest amenities, adding new guest suites and updated baths in the 5,600 square foot main lodge, a new, larger dining area and bar with picture windows, and, three cedar decks overlooking the lake where lodge guests gather before and after their daily adventures. The significant investment brought four private, Scandinavian-designed lakeside cabins that were flown into the resort by helicopter.
