The emergence of the “Adventure Lodge” is a travel trend we’re super excited about for 2020!
These experiences operate in some of the most remote locations in the world but this does not mean you’re roughing it whatsoever. And so much more than a stuffy luxury hotel, these experiences offer days packed with activities, spectacular guiding and ensure your family will return home with the best stories.
Here are 5 Adventure Lodges for a family trip that we are particularly excited about right now. Have a look and contact us today to begin planning your family’s next big trip!
Sheldon Chalet, Denali National Park, Alaska
Accessible only by helicopter, this luxe five-bedroom chalet sits on the only privately-owned land in Denali National Park. It’s an adventure to get here, and equal parts adventure and relaxation during your stay. Perfect for a few families traveling together!
Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, Vancouver Island, Canada
Situated on 600 acres where the Bedwell River meets the Pacific Ocean and surrounded by 1.5 million acres of UNESCO-protected wilderness, Clayoquot can only be accessed by seaplane, boat or helicopter. With only 25 rooms, here families have tons of space to run around and explore this pristine wilderness and get up close and personal with wildlife. This property is open from May – September.
Amangiri Resort, Escalante National Monument, Utah
Amangiri, located near Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument, is architecturally stunning in the way it blends seamlessly into its magnificent surroundings. During summer months more families enjoy this spectacular property, a perfect addition to a National Parks grand tour.
The Resort at Paws Up, Montana
Montana is a truly special place … here the air is fresh, the mountains are spectacular, wildlife is abundant and opportunities for adventure are endless. Paws Up is one of our favorite Dude Ranches for families. We love their freestanding homes and wilderness estates which are perfect for families.
Scarp Ridge Lodge, Crested Butte, Colorado
Located in downtown Crested Butte, one of the West’s most charming mountain towns, from Scarp Ridge Lodge you can easily head out to Elk Avenue for dinner or stay in and get cozy. You can also enjoy a chef prepared meal in your private kitchen at the lodge. Scarp Ridge Lodge has several bedrooms, each with private bathroom, as well as a spectacular bunk room that makes kids of all ages squeal with delight when they first see it. In addition to plenty of comfortable sleeping space, the lodge has an indoor saltwater pool and 2 hot tubs, including one on the roof with views of the town’s namesake butte.
