My fiancé and I made the trip to Alaska from Australia specifically to do this tour with this specific company. I'll start with the accomodations at camp because I'm a picky Aussie who doesn't need luxury, but certainly needs cleanliness to enjoy herself. From the moment we checked in to the lodge for a lovely lunch and briefing to the...

My wife and I recently enjoyed "The Ultimate Fishing and Wildlife Combination" at the Great Alaska Adventure Lodge - and what an adventure it was! Incredible fishing - salmon and halibut - combined with a setting to die for and top-notch service. Guides and staff were unfailingly competent, qualified, pleasant, helpful, and flexible. Want to change your adventure at the...

I don't do many reviews - it takes something incredibly good (or bad) to prompt me to write one. As you can tell by the title, our experience, which was a special trip for our 15th anniversary - was absolutely amazing. Let me start with the staff. You can tell you are in for a good time when the staff...

I want to thank Great Alaska Adventures for such an amazing trip. We had the best time ever fishing for Sockeye Salmon on the Kenai River. We caught our limit each day--it was an amazing experience. The fishing guides, staff, and service was outstanding. Each night there's a happy hour followed by dinner where you get to meet your guide...

I cannot say enough words of praise for this operation. We're not into cruises or large group excursions, so for us this was the perfect way to see what we considered the best of Alaska. There are many options to choose from on the website including some "mixing and matching". We chose the National Park Safari option since fishing wasn't...
