Alaska's Best Wilderness Lodge 907-235-8910
We respond to your interests and abilities with daily custom tailored experiences. Our Alaskan resident naturalist guides will accompany you.
Our hiking trails range from an easy walking trail to a challenging hike. Your naturalist guide will take you on hikes to the glacier. Follow ancient game trails to overlooks where you may see seabirds, eagles, sea otters and seals. The marine life, birds and wildlife are abundant.
Day excursions by motorized boat with a licensed lodge guide can be taken to view teeming sea bird rookeries, sea otter colonies and seal haul-outs. We're always watching for whales.
Even beginners can sea kayak with specially trained kayak guides in top-of-the-line, safe, stable, Seda kayaks. Cruise the quiet bays and coves of our estuary and visit the nearby sea bird rookery.
Enjoy a boating excursion to Halibut Cove, a small island artists' community where "the streets are paved with water". There is an excellent local artist gallery to visit. You may see eagles, seabirds and marine mammals enroute.
If the tides are right during your visit (during the weeks of a full moon and new moon) you can explore the tide pools teeming with abundant marine life, octopus and colorful sea stars. Gather blue mussels and dig clams for dinner.
Interpretive walks can be taken to nearby fascinating archaeological sites to view the semi-subterranean dwellings, homes of the ancient residents.
Nature walks occur with staff to berry-picking patches or to beachcomb the long curving sandbars.
Guided estuary fishing is offered for sea run dolly varden char, silver salmon and flounder, depending on the fishing run and the time of summer you visit us. The chef can prepare them for your dinner if you wish.
Optional bear viewing flights or fishing charters are available for brown bear viewing across Cook Inlet with Emerald Air Service or fishing through Central Charters.
*This is an additonal cost, and best to reserve well in advance of your visit to the Lodge: Emerald Air Services *
Gentle yoga and stretching may be available 2 mornings of the week with a certified yoga instructor. Enjoy an afternoon or evening sauna and outdoor hot tub to end a perfect day.
Curl up with a good book in front of the fireplace or relax on the comfortable desk chairs and hammocks on the docks and decks with an amazing view.
Evening hors d'oeuvres are accompanied by fine wines and local beers on the dock. We feature fresh, wild Alaskan locally caught mussels, clams, Kachemak Bay oysters, king crab, and fresh halibut, salmon or trout.
