It was such an honor to be one of Mike and Pam,s last guests before they turn over the lodge to Joe and Bonnie. This was my second visit to the Lodge, and it was just as enjoyable and friendly as the first visit. This is an experience of a lifetime to take in the beautiful Alaskan wilderness. Good luck...

Thank you very much for the kind words. Joe & Bonnie know that they have "big shoes to fill" as Mike & Pam spent a good portion of their lives making the lodge a wilderness paradise. We will strive to maintain the great operation and tradition they created. We hope to see you again soon! Best Regards sir~ More

There are no words which could describe the untouched piece of world. There are no pictures which could show the unparalleled beauty of this place. The only thing we would like to share with you folks is a thank you to Pam and Mike!

We spend 3 nights at the Caribou lodge and it was fantastic. Mike and Pam are very amazing hosts and staying in the middle of nature was great!!! Our kids loved it also very much. Hiking, shooting, learning about wood chopping, learning about what to eat and not in nature, the dog-sled and Pam's very, very good cooking, they are... More

For not being able to "say enough good things" about the humble Caribou Lodge Alaska, we think you did pretty good! Thank you for your kind words, they are appreciated. But we are going to look up "sublime." Thanks for coming, happy to have you and the family back anytime!! More

We went to Alaska to experience the beautiful nature, to see wildlife and to leave (temporary) our busy lives behind. And we found all this all together in the Caribou lodge. Mike & Pam are great hosts, who made us feel very welcome and learned us a lot about living in the remote area as they do. Mike is a... More

Caribou lodge was the highlight of my Alaska experience. From the moment we stepped off the float plane we were made to feel so welcome by hosts Pam and Mike. The scenery in every direction was spectacular. The acommodations for such a remote area surpassed our expectations. Mikes daily guided hikes were incrediible and Pam's cooking the best. They catered... More
