A great place to go, especially in the fall. The tundra colors are magnificent and views of the Alaska Range superb. Mike and Pam love to share their lifestyle and they provide a top notch experience.

This was an incredible experience. So close to nature and yet feel homely, safe and secure. This is an experience that we never thought to do but have certainly not regret it.

The stay at Caribou Lodge was my best experience in Alaska! I appreciated to learn a lot about life in the wilderness. The hiking tours with Mike were wonderful, he showed and explained me plants, in the quiet we observed black bears, moose, caribou, beaver, eagle.... Back at the lodge, Pam regaled us with varied and excellent meals. The hosts,... More

We were in Alaska for three weeks. Anchorage and Fairbanks were disappointing, Denali national part was good but crowded with tourists and tour buses. I came to Alaska to find peace and quietness...

We were not sure what to expect when venturing into the Alaskan wilderness. What we found at Caribou Lodge was a unique opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of Alaska at our pace. Rustic but very comfortable. The setting is spectacular and the quiet something to embrace. The late snows this year made for some interesting hiking but we enjoyed... More
