Fodor's Expert Review Peace of Selby Wilderness

, Alaska, USA

On Selby and Narvak lakes within Gates of the Arctic National Park, Peace of Selby offers rustic lodging built of white spruce and surrounded by incredible views. The main lodge includes a kitchen, small library, bathroom, and loft. Meals, included in some rates and packages, are cooked with fresh vegetables, fruits, and meats. If you want to rough it, you can bring along your sleeping bags and cook your own meals in one of four remote rustic log cabins, which can accommodate up to four people each. The owners also organize custom guided expeditions. Activities include hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing and photography, river floating, and flightseeing.
