A quick floatplane ride from Sitka, this cozy fishing lodge is on Baranof Island, a remote and magnificent location from which to explore the surrounding landscape and view wildlife that includes bears, whales, and eagles. Fishing packages that start at $5,350 per person for five-nights include transportation from Sitka, boats and guide service, lodging in cabins with private baths, and gourmet food and wine served at communal meals. Special wildlife photography seminars
and fly-fishing classes are offered throughout the summer. The lodge has two wood-fired hot tubs, and nearby is a natural hot spring that pours 108°F water into a series of pools overlooking a waterfall. Most of the surrounding land is within Tongass National Forest.
