We stayed at Knir River for 3 nights in July 2012 and found everything about it excellent.
Our Lodge and its location was set against a backdrop of the most stunning scenery.
Moose were regular visitors to both the main road into the lodge and on a couple of occasions whilst relaxing outside we were visited by Moose Calves. Brilliant.
The Highlight however was the Helicopter and Dog sledding trip. To land on a glacier and then mush a team of Alaskan huskies was exhilarating and being able to get so close to these wonderful dogs was an exceptional experience. Superb and well worth the money.
There were so many other trips available in and around the area and in particular some very good hikes.
