Inside ‘world’s most remote’ hotel with views of the ‘ends of the Earth’ for cool £10,000 a night

INCINCREDIBLE photographs show the 'most remote hotel in the world', with the breathtaking views costing guests up to $10,000 a night.

Sheldon Chalet is a newly completed, mountain-top chalet, boasting some of the most impressive Alaskan sceneries and comes with a hefty price tag of $35,000 (£26,000) for 3 nights.

The 5 bedroom chalet is perched on the ridge of the Don Sheldon Amphitheater on Ruth Glacier, Alaska, and can only be reached by air.

The Don Sheldon Amphitheater is situated 6,000 feet (1,829 meters) above sea level, was once only accessible by ski-equipped plane.

The mountains, in Denali National Park are home to grizzly bears, caribou and wolves, and some of the most impressive Northern Light displays in the world.

Included in the minimum 3 night stay is helicopter shuttle service, a private concierge, gourmet dining, and activities such as sledding, glacier trekking, and mountaineering.

The Sheldon Chalet is named after the architects Don and Roberta Sheldon, who designed the original chalet in 1966.

The cabin was rebuilt into a luxury hotel by Don's children, Robert and Kate, in 2018 after waiting over a decade for the building permits.

Inside is a living room called the Commons, anchored by a special Finnish fireplace, with a family-style dining space around a handcrafted Birchwood table.

The rooms are sparse, with faux fur throws and panoramic views, to keep guests' focus on the beautiful outdoors.

Sheldon Chalet can accommodate up to 10 guests at any given time, the snow-covered surroundings offering activities include rappelling and ice fishing as well as a rooftop sauna for relaxing.

Marne Sheldon, Robert's wife, said it was a challenging property to build: "The simple things in life, like running water, are actually quite luxurious when you're 6,000 feet up on a glacier."

Robert has said that it's an indescribable feeling to have completed the project his parent's started in the 60s.

He told the Chicago Tribune: “My mom and dad were people worth remembering, but their desire for this property had nothing to do with their own legacy.

"They just wanted other people to experience this place that’s majestic beyond anything else on the planet.”
