YOUR ADVENTURE BEGINS
You'll depart Anchorage about 10:00 AM on a privately chartered flight directly to the remote village of Anvik. We’ll meet you & transport you & your gear to the shores of the Yukon River. Your Anvik River adventure begins with a comfortable 70+ mile ride up river to the lodge. Our guides will transport you in large, custom jet boats designed specifically for comfort & speed. Enjoy sandwiches, cookies & drinks while you're watching for bear, moose & wolves along the way.
Once at the lodge, your hosts will hold a brief safety orientation, tour of the grounds if you’d like, issue licenses & go over any questions you may have. You can take some time to get settled in your room or jump right in the boat with your guide for the first fishing adventure of your trip. Later that evening we all meet up at a scenic gravel bar for an informal barbeque on the shores of the Anvik (weather permitting) & more fishing if you wish.
We rotate guides each day so you'll get a chance to fish with many of them throughout your stay. Depending upon your room configuration, we provide one guide & boat for every two to three guests.
YOUR ADVENTURE CONTINUES
There’s no combat fishing or jockeying for space on the Anvik so your day can start on our regular schedule, or later if you wish. Coffee is on by 7:00 AM followed by breakfast about 8:00 AM. Then it’s to the boat with your guide for a fantastic day of fishing & exploring on the Anvik River. Early evening its back to the lodge to get cleaned up & relax with drinks & hors d’oeuvres & share your tales of the day. Dinner is served at about 7:30 PM.
Since the Anvik River is shallow enough to wade & we have almost 24 hours of daylight you can fish right in front of the lodge, unguided, until late in the evening if you wish. You may also choose to relax in our authentic steam lodge, play cards, chess, board games & horseshoes, or just enjoy the view from our large picture windows or big front deck.
YOUR DEPARTURE DAY
On your departure day we’ll have a continental style breakfast ready for you while you’re packing up. We’ll provide you a travel lunch to take with you on your morning departure from the lodge. You'll say good-bye & exchange addresses with the new friends you’ve met & arrive back in Anchorage by 3:00 PM.
