If you wish to travel but not without maintaining ample social distancing, here’s a deal that’s perfect for you! We’re talking about the Sheldon Chalet, which is also touted to be the remotest hotel in the whole wide world. Yes, that’s right!
Perched on the ridge of the Don Sheldon Amphitheater of Denali’s breathtaking Ruth Glacier in Alaska, the luxe property is reachable only by air. It features accommodation for up to 10 guests, with the stay being inclusive of inbound and outbound helicopter flightseeing tours from Talkeetna or Anchorage, Alaska.
Surrounded by thriving natural habitat and wilderness like nowhere else, the Sheldon Chalet presents views of the Denali National Park that spans across six million acres and is the size of a whole US state. It is home to the 20,320-ft (6,194 m) Denali summit, North America’s highest mountain, and also doubles as a shelter for grizzly bears, caribou, moose, wolves, and countless other species.
Until the construction of the Sheldon Chalet, travelers could only climb up to reach this majestic part of the Denali National Park and Preserve, eat packaged food and drinks, all while hurrying down or staying in the tents. The hotel offers a grand upgrade in terms of food and accommodation and is an ideal way for guests to enjoy the best of luxury and wilderness.
The lavish stay is named after the father of two of the chalet’s owners, Robert and Kate Sheldon, and was built in 2018. It offers complete privacy away from the stress of urban life and is a perfect retreat for those who enjoy solace in the lap of nature.
Stays at the Sheldon Chalet are priced at $47,500 per couple for a 3-night minimum.
