Our Vision


The vision of the Alaska Mountain and Wilderness Huts Association is a system of linked backcountry huts offering diverse wilderness experiences and educational opportunities to the general public. Manitoba Cabin is just the first step in that process.

Our huts provide a higher level of service than you would find at a typical public use cabin in Alaska. Outfitted with mattresses, a fully outfitted kitchen, firewood, and propane for cooking, guests only need to bring food, a sleeping bag, and warm clothes. For some travelers, this is simply added comfort; for others, this makes a previously inaccessible wilderness experience possible for them.

Our hope is to use these experiences to educate visitors on the natural world and inspire the next generation of land stewards.
