Within The Wild Adventure Company is a partnership, in existence since 1983, between Carl and Kirsten Dixon and their daughters Carly and Amanda Dixon. Carl and Kirsten travel between their lodges in the summertime and spend time at Winterlake Lodge during the winter months.
Remote lodging in Alaska has had a long and colorful history and we are proud to be a part of its present and future. During pre-airplane days, there was a “roadhouse” situated every twenty miles or so along trails routes for the delivery of mail by dog teams. Some roadhouses were no more than squalid shacks. Others were well managed and had reputations for fine meals and clean accommodations.
All of our Within the Wild backcountry lodges are in geographic areas of the state that have a colorful history and a story to tell.
