About Alaska Wildland Adventures

Alaska Wildland Adventures is Alaska’s leader in lodge-based adventure travel. Our goal is simple; to share Alaska’s wilderness with a few people who want a high quality, true Alaska vacation experience without compromising comfortable accommodations. We also know that true Alaska experiences cannot be mass produced, and our focus on small groups ensures each and every one of our guests will have a unique, personal interaction with the natural environment that surrounds them. We believe that smaller groups mean a bigger experience.
Over the years, we’ve built three Alaska lodges, each with its own personality and unique setting; yet all with the same commitment to service and the environment. Kenai Riverside Lodge, Kenai Backcountry Lodge and Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge all pay tribute to our commitment to sharing authentic Alaska with a light footprint in an interactive style.
