I first went to Alaska Rainbow Lodge about 20 years ago. It was great then it’s even better now. Chip and his crew have taken the Alaskan fishing trip to new highs. The fishing, service and food where remarkable. I highly recommend ARL to anyone considering this type of trip

The lodge, float planes, food, and rivers full of fish make this experience a "fishing paradise". There is nothing close to the total accommodations of the Alaska Rainbow Lodge....they really care about every need of their guests. The lodge provides the "best of the best" experience. I am counting the days until I return next year.

This lodge is top notch! Every detail is taken into account- from the lodge employees handling your bags, to the personalized wader and boot rental, to the bar selections and room amenities. The breakfasts and dinners prepared by Executive Chef Marc and Sous Chef Jacob are STELLAR, as are the shore lunches made by the fishing guides. You've never eaten so well on a fishing trip, I guarantee it! The views of the Kvichak river from ARL are stunning...we used the screened-in gazebo for evening cocktail hour most days and it was just lovely to watch the sun swoop across the sky (it doesn't exactly "set" in June). All the guides are very knowledgeable and make it their personal goal to get you to the great fishing spots, as evidenced by this inexperienced fisherwoman nabbing a 36.5 inch King Salmon on her first day! They also provide bug spray (a necessity) and sunscreen if needed. When you land your allowed catch for the day, you pick whether you'd like it fresh-frozen or smoked and the guides and camp hands take it from there...You will not be disappointed either way! They get it all packed up for you to take home at the end of your stay. The pilots (Chip, Ken and Troy) are all so great as well, they really know what they are doing and I felt safe the entire time on the float planes. I cannot say enough about the inside staff (Gabrielle, Shelley, Mikayla, Grace and Veronica)- they go above and beyond to make sure every guest has everything they could possibly need and keep the lodge looking beautiful. I stayed in one of the cabins just outside the main lodge and it was so clean and comfortable! The Lodge grounds are kept impeccably by the camp hands and mechanics, and everyone seemed to love being there and helping out. Overall, owners Chip and Amanda Ferguson run quite the outfit in a remote part of Alaska, but you'd never know how remote you really are! It feels like home. I can't wait to go back next summer!

Wow, another amazing week at ARL! Chip the owner runs a very tight ship. No detail in making your experience the best ever is not considered. The pilots are the best and more importantly the safest as you fly to the best fishing places in alaska daily. Jad, the head fishing guide, has an incredible group of very "fishy" guides that are very good at the people skill business. The accommodations are world class first rate! Simply put you will not find a better lodge to stay at for the value of the trip. The people make the place and the safety of your trip is of paramount importance to all the staff at ARL. YOU MUST TRAVEL TO THIS PLACE. THIS IS TRULY A BUCKET LIST ITEM. However i have been 3 times and simply would not even consider another lodge. You cannot top the BEST. Huge kudos and thank you to Chip and his team for a wonderful visit last week with my son.

Right from sending an email to enquirer about costs and availability, Chip and Amanda provided a personal, friendly and helpful service. We discussed the facilities and the fishing in great detail, wanting to make sure that a person with limited mobility would be able to cope and they went out of their way to accommodate us wherever possible. It was a father-with-three-adult-children trip —so even when it came to accommodation arrangements, the best possible options were given. The stay was five star plus in every which way. The fishing was varied -every day a different location, bespoke experiences for this family group. The two guides provided to us every day were all excellent in what they do — helpful and attentive and always ready to go the extra mile -and more- to make sure that every day was yet another highlight. They also provided constant information and assistance, and all had a great sense of humour to make even tricky situations a fun experience. There was much laughter in this group, but also some serious fishing. We could not have wished for more -and as much as we would love to make some recommendation, between us we could not find anything that was not quite perfect!
