Alaska’s Tordrillo Mountain Lodge Unveils Summer Heli-Adventures

A mere 45-minute float plane ride from Anchorage, the Tordrillo Mountain Lodge offers true Alaska summer adventures.

It’s the type of off-the-beaten-path getaway that was once only accessible to the most adventurous of travelers.

Located in the heart of Alaska's Tordrillo Range within eyeshot of two 11,000-foot volcanoes and Mount McKinley, North America’s tallest peak at 20,320 feet, days at the property are spent wildlife viewing, participating in outdoor adventures and exploring of millions of acres of untouched Alaskan wilderness.

During the winter, the Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is known for its heli-skiing and boarding offerings.

But summer includes equally intriguing opportunities for heli-adventures. The property has just unveiled its 2018 summer season offerings, which this year for the first time include helicopter mountain biking.

Lodge owners, Olympic gold medalist Tommy Moe and fellow heli-ski veterans Mike Overcast and Mike Rheam, have 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 the experience accessible for all levels of skill or expertise. The helicopter mountain biking and camping excursions drop guests into the most spectacular parts of the Tordrillo Mountain Range with expert guides.

Sky trekking tours meanwhile take guests to Katmai and Denali National Parks and provide in-flight wildlife viewing of grizzly bears, moose, lynx and more.

Back at the lodge, which is located on the banks of Talachulitna River and Judd Lake, summer activities include stand-up paddle boarding, water skiing, wake surfing, fishing, kayaking and foil boarding. World-class fishing, glacial hiking, whitewater rafting and kayaking are additional options.

The luxe 5,600-square-foot lodge recently completed a $10 million renovation that involved upgrading guest amenities, adding new guest suites and updating baths. A new, larger dining area was also created.

The multi-million investment even included adding four private, Scandinavian-designed lakeside cabins to the property, which were flown into the resort by helicopter.

From July 5 through September 15, 2018, guests can book vacations at Tordrillo Mountain Lodge starting at $3,000 per person for two nights.

Packages include round-trip float plane flights from Anchorage's Lake Hood to Tordrillo Mountain Lodge’s Judd Lake, lodging, gourmet meals, professional guide services, exclusive Marmot gear and fishing equipment, yoga, access to the fitness center, copper hot tub overlooking the lake and a wood-fired sauna.

Groups of four guests or more visiting at least three days also receive a champagne welcome bottle, one massage, and one additional hour of helicopter time.

Kayaking Alaska Summer Adventure Lodge

Experience "The Great Alone" - Alaska Tales

"The Great Alone" - A Story of Alaska by Kristin Hannah

This is a story for the ages, one that transcends all and tears at your heartstrings. The Great Alone is a story of a love affair with Alaska. The story grabs you right from the beginning and never disappoints. The character development is superb, and the biggest character is the state of Alaska. I predict that most finish this novel and not be able to sleep until they have booked an Alaska Adventure.

I can see why after only a month in publication, Sony's TriStar Pictures purchased the movie rights to this amazing story. Kristin Hannah's last novel, "The Nightingale" sold over 2 million copies and was published in 43 different languages.

This is a story set in 1974 when a Vietnam Vet comes home a changed and volatile man. A fellow Vet had left instructions that if anything happened to him, he wanted his tiny cabin in Alaska to go to his buddy Ernt. The family moves to Alaska and lives in a tiny town "off the grid" learning to survive the "The Great Alone". This is the story of a land that changed their lives forever.
