We stayed in a Gamme cabin for 2 nights that had everything we needed, very charming. Our breakfast and dinner was included in our price, delicious and plentiful. We joined the King Crab excursion where you eat the cooked crabs afterwards, visited the Husky puppies and went on a summer sled Husky ride which was exhilarating! Everyone on staff was so nice and helpful, they all made the stay very personal and warm. Visiting the Ice Snow Hotel was fascinating, you can stay overnight in it, however, we did not. They even had reindeer on site. THey will take you into town too, so staying there without a car is fine. Beautiful place, we got to see full fall colors throughout the property. We highly recommend them!

We booked a Northern Lights tour with a snow hotel guide. It was very cool even though it was quite cloudy. We were taken well out of town to where the guide thought we would have the best chance to see them. We were not disappointed! Through the clouds we were able to see horizontal Aurora.

Went King Crab fishing with guide Michael who is the very best - so knowledgeable, funny and very helpful - - just a pleasure. He made sure we were properly outfitted with the right clothing, boots, hats, gloves and is super concerned about safety and that's good in these conditions. Be sure to ask for Michael

We recently spent one night in a Gamme cabin and wished it could have been more. The cabin is warm and comfortable with a large window and adjacent sitting area from which to enjoy the view. Dinner and breakfast were excellent. The staff were delightful. The king crab excursion was fun and our catch made a delicious lunch.
