Fodor's Expert Review Tsaina Lodge
Mile 35 Richardson Hwy., Valdez, Alaska, 99686, USA
This is no ordinary Alaska lodge—it's more like a sleek, modern, adventure base camp. At the top of Thompson Pass, 40 miles outside Valdez, Tsaina (pronounced say-na) offers gourmet dining and fantastic mountain views. What draws most guests is the quick access to water, glaciers, and mountains for hiking, kayaking, and remote heli-skiing.
