Alaska Wilderness Lodge | Stillpoint Lodge
Dreaming of a vacation to one of Alaska wilderness resorts? Cocooned in the wilds of Halibut Cove, Stillpoint Lodge is a rustic yet elegant property surrounded by mountain peaks, vivid forests and the critical habitat area of Kachemak Bay.
The log cabins of Stillpoint spill out from the central hub across the peninsula, each tucked within the lush foliage of pristine wilderness.
Grand yet homely, a wealth of activities awaits – will it be glacier lake kayaking, fishing, hiking or paddle boarding directly from the lodge's own dock? There are endless opportunities to enjoy Alaska's outdoors.
Itinerary at a Glance
Day 1 Anchorage to Stillpoint Lodge | Private Transfer + Water Taxi This morning meet your private driver guide for a day touring Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. Travel along the turquoise Kenai River, a world-class salmon fishing area, and continue to Homer with opportunities to stop in historic villages & take photos along the Cook Inlet coastline. Homer is positioned at the end of the Sterling Highway on a 4.5-mile long stretch into Kachemak Bay – the furthest west you can drive in the Americas. Upon arrival in Homer, transfer via water taxi to your wilderness lodge. If you’re searching for raw and unspoiled wild but still wish for the luxuries of civilization, Stillpoint Lodge in Halibut Cove is the place for you.
Day 2 – 3 Stillpoint Lodge | Freedom of Choice - Choose 2 of 5 Excursions For the next 2 days you can personalize your day by choosing two of these excursions Option 1. Fly-out Alaska Brown Bear (Grizzly Bear) Viewing Take off from the lodge dock via float plane and fly across Cook Inlet to the Alaska Peninsula, home to the largest brown bear population in the world. You will land in a remote mountain lake or river in either Lake Clark National Park or Katmai National Park. Includes gear, lunch and incredible flight seeing en-route. Option 2. Freshwater Fishing Hike in or fly into a local river or mountain lake, or fly in via float plane or helicopter to visit hundreds of miles of surrounding area rivers and streams. Spend a day fishing for rainbow trout, dolly varden, arctic char, grayling or salmon depending on the season. Included is all the gear and expert guides using spinning reels or fly fishing gear depending on the conditions and location. Option 3. Saltwater Fishing Salmon or Halibut Join your captain on a stable 8- or 12-passenger vessel for a full or partial day halibut-only trip fishing on the bottom of the ocean for these creatures of the deep. For those worried about getting seasick or don't want to be out all day - the partial-day trips are for you! The full day halibut trip will be for those wanting to catch bigger fish than what is caught on the partial day charters. Salmon fishing is also offered full day or partial day on 6-passenger boats equipped with downriggers, trolling gear and light tackle rods and reels. There are five species of salmon in Kachemak Bay. Most captains target the kings and silvers. Incidental catches of other salmon are always possible, and you may keep what you catch as long as it is within the ADF&G limits. Option 4. Boat, Hike & Glacier Lake Kayaking Today travel through some of Alaska’s most spectacular, unique, and scenic destinations. Boat to the trailhead, then hike to Grewingk Glacier Lake. From there take a guided Alaskan kayak tour toward the crystal blue ice and have the adventure of a lifetime. Paddle amidst icebergs and shorebirds as you approach the face of this ancient glacier. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the shore overlooking the 13-mile ice field, surrounded by towering mountains. The valley is full of wildlife including moose, black bear, mountain goats and a wide variety of birds. This full day trip includes gourmet picnic, snacks and drinks. Option 5. Boat, Bike & Hike Adventure Boat through a scenic ocean passage full of wildlife, mystic islands, intriguing rock outcroppings and majestic mountains, then disembark for a guided ride on the sturdy and well-maintained bike of your choice. Peddle along remote logging roads that lead to lively lunch options at the nearby village of Seldovia. Pick some berries on an optional after-lunch hike through a towering old growth forest to a secluded beach. Then, enjoy a relaxing boat ride back to the lodge.
Day 4 Stillpoint Lodge to Anchorage | Private Transfer This morning we have planned a guided kayak tour of Halibut Cove, then a midday return to Homer for your private transfer back to Anchorage. Drive north on the Seward Highway towards scenic Turnagain Arm, a body of water featuring the world’s second highest tides at over 30 feet. Keep an eye out for Beluga whales chasing salmon in the bay or Dall sheep along the highway as you continue back to Anchorage.
