Iniakuk Lake is a fly-in luxury lodge located 225 miles north of Fairbanks. The main lodge sits on Iniakuk Lake, just below the 4,000 foot peaks of Alaska’s Brooks Range. The lodge was hand-built by its owners, who specialize in providing individual attention for each client. Personal guides are available around the clock to help you make the most of your stay.

Northern Pike, Lake Trout and Arctic Grayling are nearly always on the bite

Guests can fish just feet away in Iniakuk Lake. At five miles long, a mile wide, and 220 feet deep, the lake is home to several prized species. The aggressive and exciting Northern Pike is around in late June and all of July. Fly fish for Arctic Grayling in the outlet and inlet streams throughout the summer. While Lake Trout are also available all summer, they visit the shallows right outside the lodge in August.

Or, go a bit farther afield with a short, private flight to other stunning fishing spots. There’s a good chance of seeing bears, wolves and other wildlife on your way. Choose an Arctic Char lake fishing adventure amidst peaks overlooking Alaska’s North Slope, or set your spinners after Sheefish in the Kobuk River. The powerful Sheefish, which ranges from 20 – 50 pounds, is best caught on heavy, sinking flies and large, flashy spinners in August and September.

Luxury wilderness lodge 60 miles north of the Arctic Circle on the edge of Gates of the Arctic National Park

Enjoy modern showers, a beautiful lounge, fireplace, and excellent, locally-sourced meals. While the lodge itself is a stunning setting for a relaxing stay, it’s also an excellent base for a variety of exciting outings. Particularly adventurous, solitude-seeking guests may choose to stay in the privately owned cabins located within Gates of the Arctic National Park. These wilderness cabins offer the best opportunities for wildlife viewing. Whatever options you choose, you’ll be sure to have a unique Arctic experience.

Whatever your hiking interests and fitness level, the Brooks Range has something to offer

The lodge’s location provides a stunning setting for day hiking, walking or picnicking. It’s also home to black bear, grizzly bear and moose. The best wildlife viewing is at Caribou Cabin within the national park, which is on the caribou’s migration route. A variety of other adventures are also available. Take a peaceful raft trip down the Alatna River to the Arrigetch Peaks Wilderness Cabin. Explore coves in a canoe, go flight-seeing in a private float plane, or get grounded on skis or an iconic Alaskan dog sled. Tours are customizable and itineraries can be shortened or lengthened as desired.
