We like to travel on our own rather than with a tour. When I noticed the loft in the room, I invited our son, who lives in Fairbanks, to join us. My husband was not looking forward to the shared bathrooms but once there I heard no grumbling.
If you have good topo maps of the area (our son forgot to print out some from a program he has), be sure to bring them because the maps offered are not good. Ask for trekking poles if you plan a hike described as "steep," you also want to do the steep part at the beginning rather than the end of the hike. They said bears aren't in the area, we saw no evidence but we had bear spray with us just the same. They might have some at the lodge, we didn't ask. We took the flight in to the lodge -- beautiful. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
