The Wilderness Lodge Experience

One of the most time-tested and classic ways to visit Alaska is to fly out to a remote wilderness lodge.  Here you can do it all:  trek, fish, kayak, view whales, bears, and other wildlife, eat sumptuous meals, sit around a roaring campfire with a class of wine or gooey s ’mores!   Many wilderness lodges allow you to customize your trip, so if your heart is set on fishing every day, you can skip the hiking or kayaking.  Or, if you want to sit quietly and enjoy nature while other guests in your party do something else, it’s yours for the asking.  Experienced guides will accompany you on your adventure to make sure you are happy and safe.

A Typical Day at a Wilderness Lodge

Begin your day with an extraordinary flight over Kodiak’s green peaks, tumbling streams and broad bays.  Along the way you are likely to see mountain goats, deer, eagles and maybe even one of Kodiak’s famous brown bears.  Your pilot will point out bays and other points of interest.  A water landing will take you to the doorstep of one of Kodiak’s magical wilderness lodges.  Your day may include bear viewing, saltwater fishing, fly-in stream fishing, whale watching, kayaking, hiking or some combination of any of those activities.  Dinner will likely be the fresh catch of the day as you watch the tides change in the bay.  Watch sunset from the shore and soak in this wonderful, peaceful place on planet Earth.
