The Reward: Sheldon Chalet

Date:

It won’t be easy to get there… but the journey will be worth it

 

SHELDON CHALET, ALASKA

A true five-star Alaskan wilderness experience, Sheldon Chalet opened in February this year on a remote glacier in the middle of Denali National Park and Preserve. Located on five private acres, it sleeps up to 10 guests across five stylishly designed bedrooms. During Aurora Borealis season in Alaska, running from 15 September until 30 April, Sheldon Chalet gives its guests prime viewing locations for these legendary northern lights, from the comfort of their own beds, as well as the panoramic views of the highest mountain in North America – just 16km away.

THE HARD BIT

Sheldon Chalet is only accessible by helicopter from the Alaskan city of Anchorage. To get there, catch an SAA flight to New York and a connection with Star Alliance partner United Airlines to Anchorage.

COSTS

$2 300 per person per night

TO DO

Enjoy aurora, lighted crystal and blizzard gazing, shooting star, meteor and avalanche watching. There’s also guided glacier trekking, bathing in remote hot springs,heli-picnics and heli-skiing, as well as igloo-building.

FOOD

Sheldon Chalet’s chef showcase the finest Alaskan-sourced ingredients, including a charcuterie spread served after a glacier hike with bresaola (air-dried, salted beef) made from bison, fresh pickles from an Alaska forager, pickled fiddlehead ferns and delicate spruce tips.
