Why Choose ALASKA'S MOST REMOTE LODGE?
Because we take care of everything for you. We know your daily life is busy and when you decide to go on vacation, especially a remote adventure like this, we want it to be as stress free as possible. Our trip packages are all-inclusive from Anchorage. There are no hidden charges or nickel & diming you along the way. All you need to do is get yourself to Anchorage in time to catch our privately chartered flight to Anvik & we take care of everything from that point on. This is your vacation & we want you to enjoy every minute of it—you deserve it!
Once here you'll find it's like having your own private fishing reserve at this truly remote yet extremely comfortable lodge. There's no "combat fishing" here. Located about 450 miles Northwest of Anchorage we really are the only lodge on the entire Anvik River. Our nearest neighbor is about 75 miles downstream in the Athabascan village of Anvik. You won't see any other anglers, boaters or float planes during your stay. It's just us & the wildlife on this 120+ mile river. Guests are consistently delighted with the genuine hospitality we provide and to find the comforts of home in such a remote area.
Picture yourself reeling in up to five species of Pacific Salmon, Northern Pike, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, Arctic Grayling & White Fish—possibly all in the same day. While partaking in this incredible fishing you can enjoy close up sightings of sow grizzly bears teaching their cubs to feed on fish. You'll also have chances to see moose, gray & black wolves, otters, beavers, eagles, ospreys, falcons & over 50 other species of migratory & song birds that make the Anvik drainage their homes.
The Hickson family & staff invite you to become part of nature at Alaska's Anvik River Lodge.
Unless otherwise stated, prices do not include taxes, gratuities, or fishing license/stamp.

The Main Lodge
The hand-hewn spruce log lodge is 6,000 square feet & houses up to 14 guests in five interior rooms & one cabin. The interior rooms open out onto the hub of the lodge's activity - a large great room with vaulted ceilings & big picture windows that look right out onto the river. The great room is complete with fly-tying station, wood stove, comfy couches & chairs, bar area and a huge rustic dining table where our guests enjoy dining & socializing with one another. Imagine not seeing anyone else besides our staff & the other lodge guests during your whole stay.
A portion of the main lodge is an original homesteader's cabin that has been converted into kitchen, pantry and your host's family quarters.
WELL-APPOINTED GUEST ROOMS
Your well-appointed guest room, with private bathroom, is complete with flush toilet and hot shower. Each room has two double beds with flannel sheets and cozy comforters. We have one private cabin that can be reserved with either a king sized bed or 3 single beds. We also have an extra-large guest room that can accommodate up to 4-5 guests in 1 double bed & 3 single beds. All rooms & cabin have 24 hour solar generated A/C power.
DELICIOUS MEALS MADE FROM SCRATCH
The food at the Anvik is consistently rated top notch by our guests. Meals aren't just basic pre-packaged restaurant food. In fact most of the salad vegetables and herbs we use are fresh from our own garden. Bread is homemade & there are always plenty of cookies & desserts to accompany our hearty meals. Practically everything is prepared from scratch. We serve traditional with a touch of the gourmet in a family style atmosphere.
Average travel time to fishing grounds:
You will find an abundance of wildlife along the Anvik River that has rarely, if ever, encountered humans. Moose, bears, wolves, lynx, beavers, otter, porcupine, martin and wolverine are just some of the wildlife to be seen. In addition to the more than 50 species of migratory and songbirds that make the Anvik drainages their home, you'll also see birds of prey such as eagles, falcon, owls and hawks.
RELAX IN OUR STEAM LODGE
Our authentic steam lodge made from hand hewn spruce is a sure way to loosen up sore muscles after a great day of catching fish.
We have a repeater telephone system that works just like a regular phone. There is only one phone line and the batteries are powered by small solar panels, so please limit all calls to 5 minutes or less. We also have a satellite telephone for emergencies. Additionally we have an internet connection WI-FI via satellite up-link. You may use this at no extra charge, but be aware that we have limited bandwidth and please just use it for emails or checking webpages. You will not be able to download or upload large programs i.e. YouTube, music, movies or use the Skype type systems as this will quickly use up all of our allotted bandwidth and there will be no internet available for a period of time.
HOUSEKEEPING & LAUNDRY
Your room will be cleaned and beds will be made daily. If you have laundry that needs to be attended to it will be taken care of while you're out on the river having great time fishing. There is no extra charge for laundry service.
POWER SUPPLYA 16-KW solar powered electrical system supplies power to the property 24 hours per day. We also have a 20-KW diesel generator for back-up electrical supply. Electrical outlets in your room are regular A/C current.
Be sure to visit our logo shop while you're here. We have a nice selection of hats, fleeces, hoodies, fishing shirts and t-shirts with the Anvik River Lodge logo available for purchase at the lodge. They make great souvenirs and gifts.
We have an open bar that is stocked with domestic beers, wines, basic liquors and sodas. If you wish to bring your own special brands you may do so. Please check with us ahead of time on limitations.
We have a complete well stocked fly-tying station for those of you that would like the opportunity to tie your own custom flies and have great pride of catching fish on them. Many of our guides are quite proficient at the art of fly tying and are happy to assist you.
