Within the Wild Alaska Adventure Lodges

November 2021

Owned and operated by Alaskans Kirsten and Carl Dixon, the Within the Wild Alaska Adventure Lodges offer guests a luxurious stray and epic adventures at both Winterlake Lodge and Tutka Bay. Surrounded by forest to the north and facing a quiet and lovely lake to the south, Winterlake Lodge offers the opportunity to explore the dramatic mountain life of Alaska. Winterlake is nestled alongside a one-mile lake that is home to nesting loons and swans. Nearby sits the dramatic Tordrillo Mountains and Rainy Pass. A helicopter ride through Alaska’s wild interior gives the opportunity to touch earth that has never before been visited by humans. In the winter, Winterlake serves as the Finger Lake checkpoint for the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. Then there is the glorious Tutka Bay Lodge, which is situated on a 9-mile fjord near the historic Herring Islands and the village of Seldovia along the diverse and unique Kachemak Bay. A private sand cove is ringed by ancient rocks that hold many opportunities for exploration. An adjacent private two-mile hiking trail is located nearby for guest use. Visitors to both lodges will enjoy Cordon Bleu-trained owner/chef Kirsten Dixon’s exquisite cuisine before, during, and after their customized daily adventures within Alaska’s wild places.
