Set in the 13-million-acre Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, these fly-in luxury cabins look out over the braided Chitina River and beyond to wild, unnamed mountains. Owner/bush pilot Paul Claus turns one of the world’s largest protected wilderness areas into your personal playground by dropping you off daily for remote hikes, glacier walks, fly-fishing, climbing, or rafting. At night, chow down on grub that’s been locally grown, fished, or hunted. (From $7,700/ person for four nights, all-inclusive)
REMOTENESS: Ultima is 100-plus miles from the nearest road, so access is by bush plane only.
BOOK IT: At least four months ahead, as just 12 guests can stay at a time. ultimathulelodge.com
