My 10 year old daughter, 15 year old son, and I visited the nicest restaurants in fairbanks and anchorage we could find...none came close to the home cooking of the Bramantes (our hosts). The...

The Caribou Lodge has made our top 5 list of all time! We travel the world in search of those extra special properties that make our trips memorable; one that greets you with excitement that you made the right choice....and bids you farewell with a yearning to return. As soon as the float plane landed and docked at Caribou, we... More

Caribou Lodge is a great place to get away from the crowds and see what Alaska really is all about. My family (2 adults and two boys) had a great time hiking and exploring. Joe and Bonnie are incredible hosts. Joe spent more time with us leading hikes and showing us the best berries to eat than we could have... More

We spent 10 days traveling through Alaska, but our time at Caribou Lodge was the best part of our trip! The property is gorgeous, the food amazing, and we have never slept better. It felt like an authentic Alaskan experience where we were able to turn off our cell phones and truly enjoy the great outdoors that surround Caribou Lodge.... More
