This is a very high quality trip. The fabulous fishing with super guides, gorgeous scenary, great pilots in vintage Beaver airplanes that are extremely well maintained are all part of a spell binding outdoor experience. You fly into a new fishing area each day. Then, you eat gormet food every night cooked by experienced chefs with delicious deserts and beverages...

I have had the good fortune of fishing all over the world. Nothing beats the fishing experience of the Alaska Rainbow Lodge located on the Kvichak River with its access to Bristol Bay and the adjacent watersheds. It is truly the best of the best. Everything from the Hosts, Guides, Lodges, planes, and the food is six star....amazing for Alaska!

Great experience, great staff and great fishing! All first class for Alaska. You fly to different lakes or rivers each day in one of their beavers. Food is wonderful and they are extremely accommodating to any needs you have. Recommend highly.

My son and I just returned from ARL. What a wonderful well run lodge. We were there for five days of fishing. They met us at the King Salmon airport and took all the clients to their dock to fly us to the lodge in the Beaver planes. After about a 30 min. flight we arrived at the lodge. They...

Room was terrific, food was outrageous, staff was beyond compare, and they were all outdone by the fishing! I used Trip Advisor and Google to help find and select this lodge.
