We will be open for the 2022 season.
We are 100% committed to both our Clients and Staff.
We will be following COVID-19 safety protocols.
As we all know the worldwide pandemic has severely affected people in all walks of life.
Since late January we have been actively working with both state, federal government, and local village elders. Our decision to open the lodge has been made with carful safety consideration.
By following COVID-19 safety protocols we are able to open
Since 1978 our business has endured volcanic eruptions, earth quakes, droughts, floods, recessions, and the no-fly restrictions of 9-11. We have never failed to fulfill a single contract with our clients and have always made payroll for our staff. We will continue to provide the trips we have promised to our clients and keep our staff working.
Most of our trips fill up years in advance. 25% of our clients are from overseas, and with international travel restrictions some of our clients simply cannot get to Alaska in 2020. This has created openings during the peak season.
Give us a call as we are offering some very special once in a lifetime deals.

His amazing home is just a short flight away and truly a sight to behold.

Whale, sea lion, sea otters, seals and hundreds of species of sea birds populate these coastal areas. You will visit Round Island Walrus Sanctuary. Hike and beachcomb, and explore waterfalls, fossil beds and agate beaches. Land in a volcano crater lake and hike the rim for breathtaking views.
Journey to the Katmai Valley of 10,000 Smokes and Brooks River Falls. Then, the next day, fly over Caribou herds to the west and Dall Sheep high in the Alaska Range.
