Exclusive, world-class fishing lodges are the ultimate wilderness luxury. And Alaska comes ready-made for them, with endless acres of gorgeous wilderness and enormous runs of salmon and other fish.
But these lodges aren't just cabins in the woods. In fact, fly-in fishing lodges can offer some of Alaska's most luxurious accommodations, along with gourmet cuisine and expert guides. And since you have to fly in, staying at one of these retreats isn't for the cost-conscious traveler.
For those who can afford it, though, fly-in fishing lodges are a great way to combine a retreat to the remote Alaskan wilderness with fun activities. You'll of course be casting your line in nearby waters for fish like salmon, arctic char, and dolly varden. But while fishing may be the focus, you'll also find other activities like hiking and sometimes kayaking or bear-viewing. And at the end of each day, you'll return to the lodge to share the day's adventures with new friends over a delicious meal.

An all-inclusive retreat on 25 acres at the confluence of the Moose and Kenai rivers, the Great Alaska Adventure Lodge is a comfy log lodge that combines serenity with an extraordinary lineup of guided adventures, from whitewater rafting to its fly-in bear-viewing camp. Drive or arrive by floatplane, then go salmon fishing or take a glacier cruise, and return for dinner and an evening on the deck overlooking the rivers and admiring the snow-capped Kenai Mountains with the Harding Icefield glistening in the distance. Or, get in a little more fishing along the property’s premium quarter-mile shoreline before bed.

There's no better base for a fishing trip in Katmai than Brooks Lodge. Overlooking the river, the lodge has been run by the same family for over 60 years, so they really know the fishing here. It's not a fully-guided lodge, so you'll find affordable rates. You can also hire a guide if you want, or use their transportation services to get to remote lakes and rivers, or fish on your own. If you’re looking to explore the area, Brooks Lodge also offers bear viewing opportunities.
