A Stay at the World’s Most Remote Hotel Will Cost You $35,000

Perched on the ridge of the Don Sheldon Amphitheater of Denali’s breathtaking Ruth Glacier in Alaska and reachable only by air, Sheldon Chalet is famous as the world’s most remote hotel and is one of the most beautiful places you can visit in the United States. It's also one of the most inaccessible. The Sheldon Chalet — named after the father of two of the chalet’s owners, Robert and Kate Sheldon — was built in 2018 and immediately made news headlines both for its inaccessible location and the $35,000 price tag for a 3-night stay. The price includes helicopter shuttle service, a private concierge, gourmet dining, and activities that include sledding, glacier trekking, and mountaineering. It’s not the sort of experience everyone can afford, that’s for sure, but if money’s not a problem, staying at the world’s most remote chalet is definitely something worth your bucket list.
