For many fishermen, a trip to Alaska to fish for kings on the Kenai River is a dream – often never realized. Why? Budget, time, distance — sure … but more often, family. We talk to anglers around the world who worry about taking precious vacation time and money to go on a trip that seems, in a word, selfish.
Luckily, with Alaska Wildland Adventures, that worry is over. Our Kenai Riverside Lodge on the banks of the upper Kenai River in Cooper Landing, Alaska, is home to both our sportfishing program as well as adventure packages for travelers of all kinds.
We lead the way on the Kenai with great guides, top gear, personalized service and attention to the “details” of your trip. If you have family or friends along who are less enthusiastic about fishing, our sportfishing packages can easily include days where everyone fishes, one person fishes, or a select group hits the water.
While the fishermen are out on the river searching for the in-season salmon species (king, sockeye or silver), or perfecting their fly-fishing techniques for giant rainbow trout and Dolly Varden, everyone else can be on a guided two- to seven-hour rafting trip or a gorgeous hike in the Chugach Mountains.
We encourage families and couples to come together, share experiences, do some separate activities if they choose, and then gather around the dinner table, bonfire, deck, and sauna to relax and enjoy the lodge.
Our lodge and amenities keep everyone comfortable and content. Sixteen private guest cabins with attached baths and private porches are nestled into the wooded riverside setting. Our main log lodge has a cozy lounge area with a wood stove, a bar where a cold beer or glass of wine can be purchased, and our main dining room where breakfast and dinner are served. Relax on our brand-new, expansive deck overlooking the river, enjoy a bonfire, take a wood-fired sauna and (if you’re game!) dip in the river after … or play a game of ping pong, horseshoes or sand volleyball.
Another great advantage to fishing with Alaska Wildland Adventures? Ease. We take care of everything for you, even transportation to and from Anchorage. So all you have to do is pack a bag, show up on time, and enjoy.
We only book trips on the phone and via email so our expert staff can assist you in creating the perfect trip to fit your style. Once you arrive in Alaska, everyone from shuttle driver to your guide is dedicated to you and making your trip as worry-free and fun as possible. We outfit you with great gear, fish out of top-quality boats, pack lunches customized to your dietary needs, and filet, pack and freeze your fish!
