Join the Family at Alaska's One-of-a-Kind, Safari Lodge

Ultima Thule, defined as ‘the land remote beyond reckoning,’ was built from the understanding that indulging creature comforts and overwhelming the senses are ideal ingredients for once-in-a-lifetime experiences. This unique and timeless Lodge has adopted a style of “no roughing it” luxury that effortlessly enhances the already indescribable setting.

Ultima Thule is first and foremost a family owned and operated company with foundational values of hardwork and service. The lodge is an outpost of civilization in the heart of true wilderness and as such, relies on the skills and dedication of each person to maintain the needs of the community.

Our crew members consist of people who are passionate about wild places, committed to going above and beyond to create unforgettable experiences and motivated by the desire to grow as individuals while building strong community connections.

Each person wears many hats throughout a season and works alongside all the crew and family members to ensure that our small number of clients receive first class service and impeccable comfort during their visit to the “the middle of nowhere”.



Do you have a passion for making amazing food and sharing it with your friends and loved ones? Do you have some experience in the high paced world of commercial cooking but don’t feel like the typical restaurant cook road is for you? Do you love creating, learning and working hard in a team setting? Are you interested in farm to table style cooking and using what’s on hand?

We are looking for you! Our incredible folks in the kitchen at Ultima Thule are the heartbeat of our operation. Come help the established team and facilitate the crew meals on your own while learning and assisting with preparation and presentation of our fine dining guest meal service.  

No formal training necessary, however, you must have some prior experience in or around a commercial kitchen to fully understand the time management and high demands of producing 3 meals a day for up to 50 people.

- You must be able to take direction well and learn through observation.
- You must have a willing and go-with-the-flow attitude.
- You must be comfortable working a split shift schedule and able to come and go from work throughout the day starting early and ending late.

This is a first-year employee position with the perk of learning new skills, having new experiences and progressing within the company in future seasons.

Season runs May – September. Apply today with the application at the bottom of the page and come spend the summer as part of the Thule Crew Family, creating amazing meals that highlight the majestic mountain setting.

Additional Information

LIVING at Ultima Thule: 
For lodge based jobs meals and lodging are provided.
Please note: we eat hearty/healthy meals with lots of fresh veggies and wild harvested fish and game – due to our remote location and demands on the kitchen staff we are not always able to accommodate special dietary needs from crew members. Dorm style housing is provided and crew members may be asked to share a room with a person of the same gender. A crew sauna/bath house is also provided. Remember this is a remote Alaskan setting and there is no indoor plumbing in the crew house. Crew members enjoy getting out for hikes and camping adventures on down days, however, the guest experience is the paramount focus and priority. Work days are long and enthusiasm is ALWAYS expected. 

Each applicant is asked to mindfully consider if the lifestyle and challenges are right for them before pursuing a position!  

While we highly encouge folks to apply who love being in and experiencing nature we kindly remind all applicants that being an employee of our wilderness lodge does not mean that you will be having the same experience in the surroundings as our guests enjoy.
