Why Choose ALASKA’S MOST REMOTE LODGE?
Because we take care of everything for you. We know your daily life is busy and when you decide to go on vacation, especially a remote adventure like this, we want it to be as stress free as possible. Our trip packages are all-inclusive from Anchorage. There are no hidden charges or nickel & diming you along the way. All you need to do is get yourself to Anchorage in time to catch our privately chartered flight to Anvik & we take care of everything from that point on. This is your vacation & we want you to enjoy every minute of it—you deserve it!
Once here you’ll find it’s like having your own private fishing reserve at this truly remote yet extremely comfortable lodge. There’s no “combat fishing” here. Located about 450 miles Northwest of Anchorage we really are the only lodge on the entire Anvik River. Our nearest neighbor is about 75 miles downstream in the Athabascan village of Anvik. You won’t see any other anglers, boaters or float planes during your stay. It’s just us & the wildlife on this 120+ mile river. Guests are consistently delighted with the genuine hospitality we provide and to find the comforts of home in such a remote area.
One of the most desirable things about fishing the Anvik, besides that fact that there’s not at all crowded, is the variety of fishing that can be enjoyed on this beautiful drainage. You can choose to drift fish from the boat, fish from the gravel shores of the Anvik or wade fish. Each day you fish with a different guide and different area of the river and its tributaries. Our accomplished guides each have their own techniques to help you catch more fish than you can imagine.
Picture yourself reeling in up to five species of Pacific Salmon, Northern Pike, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, Arctic Grayling & White Fish—possibly all in the same day. While partaking in this incredible fishing you can enjoy close up sightings of sow grizzly bears teaching their cubs to feed on fish. You’ll also have chances to see moose, gray & black wolves, otters, beavers, eagles, ospreys, falcons & over 50 other species of migratory & song birds that make the Anvik drainage their homes.
The Hickson family & staff invite you to become part of nature at Alaska’s Anvik River Lodge.
