The subject says it all!! This place was beyond amazing. The nearest neighbors literally are walruses about 8 miles away! In addition to that we saw an eagles nest, and spent the day overlooking a lake frequented by bears (stopped counting at about 20). We got to observe natural bear behavior in their natural habitat. Also went on boat rides in the river and tundra walks and beach walks along the Bering Sea. We also used the helicopter to get places and wildlife viewing (super fun!!!). The river passes right by the lodge and it has the clearest and purest water I have ever seen. There were 3 of us, myself, my husband and our adult son, so we had a duplex cabin - 2 rooms with a bathroom between them which was perfect. It was very comfortable, dark and toasty. The meals are delicious and very filling after a day of adventure. But the biggest feature is the serenity and peacefulness of the area - it is so quiet and relaxing, a great place to escape the stress and madness of our everyday lives. ....and did I mention we saw walruses and this is one of the few places in the world you can reliably do so??!!!

my son and i had a truly wonderful experience at WLL. Alaska offers many great opportunities for great fishing and we have been blessed to fish several locations in Alaska. Butch and Kathy King offer an experience that is like none other. what make this location so special are the accommodations and resources provided at such a remote location. Butch is relentless in his daily efforts reading offshore salmon harvest reports to ensure guests are afforded the privilege to target the the best possible fishing opportunities. the only other fisherman we fished with(or saw) for an entire week is those we ate breakfast with. that is a rare occurrence even in Alaska.very cool. we can not wait to return. thank you

I visited Wildman Lake Lodge in August 2018 on their wildlife viewing trip. The whole trip was amazing! The hosts, guides and chefs are really friendly and skilled in what they do. The hosts made sure we took advantage of the good weather. Lots of wildlife viewing and a picnic lunch on the beach. The schedule was flexible to make sure each of the guests were catered for. I saw the walrus haul out and brown bears as well as moose, caribou, a wolf, a fox and sand cranes. When it got a bit windy later in the trip, the hosts made sure we had something fun to do. We went on a hike and another boat trip on the river to take in more of the scenery and look for wildlife. I recommend this trip to anyone who loves the Alaskan wilderness and wildlife. A huge thank you to the fantastic team at Wildman Lake Lodge for such an amazing experience :)

We spent four days at Wildman on the wildlife watching tour in August 2018. Lesley and Jason were excellent hosts. The guide team were brilliant. The hospitality team first class. We saw some incredible wildlife, enjoyed a spot of fishing and loved the friendly hospitality shown by all. Highly recommend this to anyone. Dave. UK

We've been to Wildman twice. Both trips were amazing! Between the fishing, beachcombing, visiting the walruses, and quality time with our family we couldn't have asked for a better vacation! The staff goes above and beyond to make sure your trip is seamless. Make sure you bring clothes with a little extra room, the food is amazing!

I should start by saying this was a trip of a lifetime and if we are fortunate enough to be able to return we will. I have been selling Travel for almost 25 years, and my family members are no strangers to Travelling on a global scale from Luxury to Lean-to's. Our group consisted of My Dad (85), My Mom (83 shh), My Nephew (14) and my Daughter (14) and I am just shy of 50. I should also mention we are not a low maintenance group. This trip was about making memories between cousins and Grandparents and believe me this was well achieved. We had come off a Northbound Cruise from Vancouver which was also out of our norm and I was looking for a Wildlife experience as my Dad is an avid photographer and so are the two kids. Wildman Lodge seemed to fit the bill with Alaska Brown Bears, Wolves, Wolverines, Fox etc and the top of the list ....Walrus!!! I am not going to lie I seemed to have missed the details that the flight could take up to 4.5 hours from Anchorage with various stops announced along the way,this sure added to the adventure (ya I now realize how far 500 miles is), Luckily it was non stop on the way back and with a nice tail wind took 2hrs 45. We were greeted with the whole crew from the Owner Butch and his wife,(true Alaskans on a legendary scale) Jason and his family who runs the place, the guides, the Chef and his assistants and the pilot. My Mom has a food allergy and was well looked after. The Food was excellent! The Rooms were well appointed and yes Hot water and heat, I didn't really realize what a feat that is until I figured out how out there we were. The weather didn't cooperate with us and as a result we couldn't do the exact itinerary they had hoped to do, but we all made the best of it, Tyler was excellent with the kids ,very patient and taught them how to fish, my daughter is hooked and my nephew who was out of his element was thrilled in the end. Greg was amazing with my parents who needed some extra care over what I think the typical clients at a Fishing Hunting lodge on the Bering Sea would need, in fact I think my Dad would go back just to hang out with Greg and for that I am very grateful. Jason takes his job and safety very seriously and the importance of that should not be overlooked. We saw Alaska Brown Bears just around the corner from the lodge by boat and in fact on the runway! (They are way bigger than I thought in person!!) If you are looking for a place to "harvest" ,I think they call it, one of these beauties then this would hands down be the place to come, if this isn't your cup of tea, don't let it put you off of going here as its a very specific time of year and a very niche market etc. If you are an avid fisherperson, look no further and even if you aren't you will be by the time you leave, the amount of fish was crazy. Walking on the beach on the Bering Sea collecting glass fishing balls from Japan, seeing Fox, Bears, wildflowers, huge foot prints of wolves and bears, catching fish, eating amazing food, going to see Walrus by a two seater plane....it truly is the most amazing place (full disclosure I am not a fan of small planes for some dumb reason, and due to the weather we did not take advantage of them being literally at our door step , but My parents were flown in to see the Walrus's and the kids were taken out for a scenic flight and I loved being in the river boats) Wildman Lodge really caters to your needs ..they even put up a Canadian flag. For the right person this place is amazing and for the notso right person this place will blow your mind... either way you will in no doubt be well looked after , by a knowledgeable, friendly and professional group. We are still buzzing

This time my trip to Wildman was with my 78 year old Dad and my 11 & 14 year old sons. The rivers are manageable and chuck full of fish. Lots of wildlife, and big bears too! So much to take in! Then at the end of the day, a warm lodge and cabins, and Great food to warm the insides! Everyone on the staff makes a point of getting to know you. My boys cried when we left! They wanted to stay with their new family in Alaska!!!

Fabulous family trip! Great fishing, accommodations and fantastic food in the true Alaska wilderness. Butch and his team are well organized and every aspect of this adventure was seemless and enjoyable. The flying almost as much fun as the fishing and wildlife viewing. We'll be back.

I've enjoyed Wildman Lake Lodge fly fishing for the past 20 years. The fishing, the staff and the adventure are never a disappointment. The lodging is comfortable, the food wonderful, the fishing fabulous and the whole trip is the experience of a lifetime.
