Guests at Borealis Basecamp dine in a craftsman-built yurt with plenty of space to look out upon nearby Wickersham Dome and the White Mountains. Linger with a cup of coffee or glass of wine, savor each meal, and enjoy a sense of home away from home. The yurt is “home base” for guests, providing a 24-hour space to visit, play board games, or read a good book.
Latitude 65 was opened by Chef Easter in October 2018. Chef Easter has 22 years experience in the industry, having moved to Alaska eight years ago from Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 2017, Chef Easter won the Taste of the Chugiak award for his locally sourced dishes. The mission of Latitude 65 is to provide guests with a true Alaskan eating experience. We serve all sustainable Alaskan Seafood, and have established relationships with local farmers to provide local produce.
Start each morning with fresh juice, coffee, and tea before tucking into a filling continental breakfast consisting of local breads, yogurt, hot and cold cereals, and fruit. Starting at 8:00 am is our hot breakfast service, order French toast made with Alaskan Sourdough bread or a Reindeer sausage omelet as you watch the sun rise over the Boreal forest. Guests can be sure Borealis Basecamp staff will prepare plenty of delicious fuel for a day of adventures.
Nothing warms the soul and stomach like a bowl of hot soup, especially after cold-weather activities. Borealis Basecamp guests may choose from a menu of hot or cold sandwiches made on fresh Alaskan Sourdough bread, stir fry noodle dishes, or a rotating menu of house made soup.
*Lunch is served between 11:30am – 2:00 p.m.
Dinner at Borealis Basecamp is both a relaxing time and a prelude to a night of aurora-viewing. Guests dine on favorites like Alaskan king crab, Reindeer medallions, Rib eye steak cooked to perfection, and Alaskan Sockeye salmon. The menu strives to emphasize locally-sourced ingredients, and the atmosphere is a tranquil retreat from an otherwise busy day.
