Living between Winterlake Lodge and Tutka Bay Lodge, the Dixons care deeply about Alaska’s extraordinary environment, and we feel a strong responsibility to the land that sustains us all.


Through partnerships

Both Winterlake Lodge and Tutka Bay Lodge were thoroughly vetted by a National Geographic sustainable tourism expert who spent time at our properties, evaluated operations, and met with everyone from the general manager to the kitchen staff, ensuring that Nat Geo’s high standards were met. The review included a thorough vetting based on the pillars of sustainable tourism: protection of natural heritage, protection of cultural heritage, support for local communities, and environmentally friendly practices. There is information at the lodges on how we accomplish our commitments and participate in these pillars.
