USA: Alaska, Talkeetna - Swiss Alaska Inn
Located approximately 118 miles North of Anchorage, in the
small town of Talkeetna, the Swiss Alaska Inn is a friendly and warm place to
visit. The proprietor, Vern is originally from Switzerland but has been living
in Alaska for the past 20 or so years. Both the Inn and the town of
Talkeetna, serve as jumping off
points for many of the climbers attempting to summit Mt. McKinley, North
America's highest peak at 20,320 feet in Denali National Park. The mountain is
still over 60 miles away but most climbers fly out to the Kahiltna glacier from
Talkeetna's small airport. Visitors can also fly out to see the mountain and
surrounding park and if they want land on the glacier for a while. We recommend
Doug Geeting Aviation for this trip. Great views
of the surrounding mountains are plentiful and the river that runs through town
supports a variety of sport fishing ventures.
There are approximately 24 rooms in the main building
and 8-10 in the surrounding cabins. This is not the "Ritz" but it is
comfortable and the owners make everyone feel welcome. There is a restaurant in
the main building where great homestyle meals are served. If you get there in
May or June you are likely to run in to one or more of the international
expeditions of climbers leaving or returning from Mt. McKinley.
Room prices run from $80 to $110 per night during the peak season of May through August. MasterCard, Visa accepted.
