My family had a perfect week in Alaska’s pristine wilderness. The moment we arrived, Steve, the owner of Chulitna Lodge, and his excellent staff attended to our every need in a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere. Our delicious, healthy gourmet meals and snacks were creatively prepared by expert chefs. Our accommodations were quite comfortable with interesting details and artifacts both inside the lodge and on the grounds. We highly recommend the “Chulitna experience” to either the adventurer at heart or Zen seeker. Can’t wait to visit again!

We just got back from Chulitna Lodge yesterday from a family trip and we definitely highly recommend it, it’s been an amazing and unique experience! Extremely beautiful and well taken care of, it is a lodge where you feel at home as soon as you step on it and you are offered all kinds of facilities and kindness. Beyond the lodge itself which it is 10 out of 10 you are offered many activities including a bear viewing! If you are a foodie or even a vegan (there is a very cute green garden) it is also your place!!! Steve and the staff were extremely welcoming! Soy española y animo que las largas distancias no sean un impedimento.. MERECE MUCHISIMO LA PENA!! Es un lodge como para hacer en familia, grupo de amigos .... o para una maravillosa honey moon!!! CONGRATS STEVE!!!!!

Thank you so much Blanca. It was a pleasure to host you and I'm so glad it worked out for me to be able to guide you on our bear viewing day. I sent you today a few amazing videos of you and your family with those two brother bears that came so close! It is guests like yourself that keep us inspired to continue to share this magical land. -Steve

My hubby and I had our first visit to Chulitna from our home in Australia for 5 days in May 2018. It was the most amazing and wonderful holiday so this year we decided to go back and take our 2 teenagers so they could experience the wonder and magic of the Alaskan Wilderness. Chulitna is truly a unique lodge, so peaceful with absolutely amazing staff, gourmet food, wonderful hikes, serenity etc etc. A great place to disconnect and relax. We also flew out for bear viewing and had a fantastic day, as well as hiking Tanalian and George, exploring beaver dams and just walking along the shores of Lake Clarke. Great holiday. Hope to be able to go back again.

With 5 friends we had a great time at Chulitna. The staff helped us to arrange great canoeing and hiking trips in the Lake Clark area. Steve was a great guide on our backpacking hike from Turquoise Lake to Twin Lakes. It is impossible to describe how beautifull this area is.

I was planning my Alaska trip primarily to see Polar Bears and watch the Grizzlies up-close during the Salmon run. As luck would have it, I stumbled upon Chulitna Lodge and I am so glad I did! Steve and Mara helped me plan my entire Alaska trip, everything from kayaking in Seward, to flightseeing and watching bears in Katmai and Polar Bears up in the Arctic circle in Barter Island. The Lodge itself was amazing. The staff was very friendly. The food was outstanding. I stayed there for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The view from the lodge is stunning. The hot water showers in the cold weather were very welcome. And they also have a Sauna! I enjoyed the tradition of getting really hot in the Sauna and then jumping in the freezing river and then running back in to the Sauna and repeat. And did I mention that they have fantastic chefs (Jacob and Sid). With all the natural beauty and wilderness, last thing I expected was to be blown away by the mouth watering, delicious dinners. I was lucky to have clear skies in the night and I saw half a dozen shooting stars and numerous satellites. Steve is very knowledgeable and friendly. He took me on a Jet boating tour and fishing. It was a great experience. If you want to experience Alaskan wilderness and get a taste of the bush life, highly recommend spending a few days at Chulitna Lodge! I hope to be back again soon.

I am so glad you had such a great trip! I love those phone calls where someone basically says, "Steve, show me Alaska." I hope to see you again, and would love to share Kaktovik pics with you as well. There is little that inspires us more at Chulitna than seeing in the eyes of those who visit here, a respect and awe for the beauty and bounty this land has to offer. Thank you for furthering our resolve!
