Fishing Lodges

Tikchik Narrows Lodge. This remote lodge caters primarily to sportfishing enthusiasts looking for comfortable housing and delicious gourmet-style meals—and who can afford to pay the princely sum for a week's stay. Packages at the picturesque, waterfront lodge within Tikchik State Park include guided fishing trips via the lodge's floatplane fleet to some of the best headwaters that Alaska—and maybe the world—has to offer. The lodge is owned by Bud Hodson, a guide in the region for decades, also rents kayaks and rafts and provides an air-taxi service into the park's most remote corners. Family-friendly vacation packages are also available. Alaska. 907/243–8450; From $8700 per week.
