Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is a 40-minute flight from Anchorage. The lodge is a remote, multi-sport property in the heart of the Alaska Range on the banks of the Talachulitna River and Judd Lake, and within view of two 11,000-foot volcanoes and Mt. McKinley, North America's tallest peak at 20,320 feet. You can find a quiet corner on the deck and take it all in, cast a line from the lawn, or take a kayak out right from the lodge's doorstep.
A trip to Tordrillo Mountain Lodge encompasses the ultimate in Alaska outdoor adventure. Guided adventures include heli-fishing, heli-biking, hiking, glacier tours, rafting, flight seeing, water sports, skiing and more. This is the ultimate "choose your own adventure" lodge. It's a perfect place for families and couples, as there is such a great variety of Alaska activities to enjoy. Tordrillo Mountain Lodge employs their own A-Star helicopter for fly out adventures from the lodge. You can also choose to fish or play locally on Judd Lake and Talachulitna Creek. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
Tordrillo Mountain Lodge doesn't own these Alaskan rivers, but thanks to the access granted by heli fishing, they might as well. In almost 25 years of helicopter fishing these streams, TML still rarely competes with other anglers when fishing by helicopter for all five species of Pacific salmon, rainbow trout, dolly varden char, and grayling. Each hole fished is accessible by helicopter only, so you'll never compete for shoulder room or fish. Instead of racing out to the fishing grounds in the morning, enjoy a leisurely breakfast before you load up and choose a location to heli fish based on what's running in various drainages and streams.
The Tordrillo Mountain Lodge complex includes a main lodge, a secondary lodge (Judd Lake Lodge), and a third exclusive facility and lakeside retreat.
The main lodge represents a blend of posh amenities and rustic Alaska architecture. This 5,600 square foot log structure has walls of windows and three large cedar decks that overlook the lake and the Alaska Range. In addition to the deluxe guest rooms, the family room and grand living room offer a cozy atmosphere for fireside chats or reading in one of the over-stuffed chairs.
Tordrillo Mountain Lodge also offers private cabins. These handcrafted cabins feature 2 twins or a king size bed. Each cabin has a full bathroom. The highlight of each cabin is the spacious front end lounge and finish glass fireplace. Relax and enjoy great views through the floor to ceiling windows while you enjoy your morning coffee. Each cabin is conveniently located near the yoga / sauna building and a stones throw from the lodge.
At Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, cuisine is part of the adventure. The chef starts your day with a breakfast buffet that includes fresh fruit, homemade pastries and a hot dish, all served with international coffees and teas. Even the field lunches have his signature touch. Homemade soups, gourmet sandwiches, and loaded brownies fuel the back half of the day.
Served in a cozy, intimate setting, dinner is nothing short of an epic gourmet experience, complete with suggested wine pairings. Every course features seasonal herbs and fresh vegetables from our garden, Alaska seafood, and regional game dishes. Fresh Kachemak Bay oysters, white king salmon, Alaska king crab, halibut, black cod and scallops are some of the regional specialties you can expect to see featured as appetizers and entrees, along with specialty game dishes such as elk, lamb and pheasant.
