This is a fantastic experience. You get here via an amazing boat ride where you can see wonderful wildlife. We saw everything from orcas to puffins to sea lions. It was almost worth it just for that ride alone, but the lodge itself is also great. It has a view of the glacier and these great rocking chairs where you... More

We came here by boat, skippered by the very able and affable Jessica who on the journey gave us the chance to see the teeming wildlife of the shoreline and sea. The lodge was beautifully positioned not far from the head of an inlet of the Kenai Fjord Complex. Our Lodge / Cabin gave us more than ample room and... More

The views from the lodge are spectacular as one watches wildlife in and around the lagoon with mountains and glacier in the (not-s-distant) background. The accommodations are fantastic as is the staff - everyone was great. And they have numerous activities for all levels of (active) individuals. The location is incredibly remote - it takes a few hours by boat... More

Thank you so much for your helpful feedback. Although we do our best to offer a wide array of guided activities each day, for varying ability levels, sometimes weather and tidal patterns can limit options. We appreciate you choosing Alaska Wildland Adventures and Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge for your coastal Alaska adventure! More

This lodge is a beautiful spot. The food was quite amazing thanks to a great chef. We had the best blueberry ice cream I ever tasted. Every dish was scrumptious. We loved the canoeing and building stone towers with the beach rocks. The camp fired was a real plus too. Znd we also did some hiking up the mountain. It... More

We were going to the lodge for three nights and our first two nights were canceled by the lodge due to wind as they said that the boat could not go safely.

We understand the reviewer’s disappointment in that inclement weather disrupted her original lodge stay. Contrary to the reviewer’s claims, it doesn’t happen that often, and when it does it is a reminder of the flexibility and understanding that is sometimes required of adventure travelers visiting wild and remote locations in Alaska and other unique corners of the world.
