The Lodge is for travelers who want to experience the real Alaska. People who are craving wild places and raw experiences. It is for those who are looking for authentic experiences and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and feet wet. Adventurers who want to be left in awe of nature and can appreciate a place where the mountains are still without names.
The Lodge sits 100 miles from the end of the paved and maintained road system near the historic mining town of McCarthy. The only way to get here is via bush-plane. Anchorage is over 350 miles airmiles due west of the lodge.
Our crew gets the unique opportunity of living off the grid in the middle of the largest protected landmass in the world, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. The views from our ‘office’ are unparalleled. You will be part of a flight culture and we are lucky enough to have some of the best bush pilots in the world. Staff has the option of going on adventures in our 13 million acre backyard during their downtime which could include hiking, rafting and camping. Transportation between Anchorage and the lodge as well as room and board are provided in exchange for work. This is truly a once in a life time experience.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We need help in the kitchen with dishes, set up and clean up as well as possible assistance with housekeeping and gardening.
Meals are provided in a family-style atmosphere. We eat hearty/healthy meals with lots of fresh veggies and wild harvested fish and game. Due to our remote location and demands on the kitchen staff we are not always able to accommodate special dietary needs from crew members.
Dorm style housing is also provided and crew members may be asked to share a room with a person of the same gender. A crew sauna/bath house is also provided. Remember this is remote Alaska and there is no indoor plumbing in the crew house.
Each applicant is asked to mindfully consider if the lifestyle and challenges are right for them before pursuing a position!
Our crew consists of individuals who are passionate about wild places, committed to going above and beyond to create unforgettable experiences and motivated by the desire to grow as individuals while making strong social connections.
The Lodge is a family-owned and operated with foundational values of hard work and service. The lodge is an outpost of civilization in the heart of the true wilderness and as such, relies on the skills and dedication of each person to maintain the needs of the community.
