2018 promises to be a special year at Redoubt Mountain Lodge.
For a limited time, a helicopter will be at the lodge to take guests on a variety of “Only in Alaska” adventures. These helicopter tours & adventures will be available to guests visiting for multi-night stays between June 10 – July 2, 2018. Helicopter based adventures were offered during this time last season and the overwhelming guest response was “WE WANT MORE!”
To give you an idea of the experience here are a few of the available adventures:
Flight see throughout Lake Clark National Park
Climb aboard the helicopter and take-off to view places very few have seen and none have set foot on. Surrounded by numerous waterfalls, massive glaciers, active volcanoes and dramatic mountain peaks, the helicopter gets you up close and personal. For those looking for that extra thrill: have your pilot remove the doors and let your feet dangle! This trip will leave you speechless.
Exclusive bear viewing area just for you
Walk among the great Alaskan Brown Bears as they forage throughout the sedge grasses. Enjoy the peacefullness of just you & the bears. And on your way there, be prepared to lose count of the bears you'll see from the helicopter. This excursion includes a beautiful mountain and coastal flight see on your way to see the bears!

Raft, kayak or paddle board a meandering river deep within the Alaska Range
Begin this adventure with a thrilling helicopter flight into a beautiful valley within the Chigmit Mountains. Your guide and boats will be waiting for your arrival. Gear up & shove off for a 2-3 hour float through pristine landscape full of wildflowers & wildlife. This valley is home to numerous beavers, moose, birds and a few bears. Enjoy cascading waterfalls pouring from the 3000'+ peaks that ring this hidden valley. Float through beaver ponds and a maze of waterways as you soak up remote Alaska! You will have this experience all to yourself, as we only accommodate 2 guests with a guide on this excursion.
In addition to our established helicopter tours guests can choose to go coastal clam digging, enjoy a fly-out fishing trip or focus on aerial photography. All trips are subject to weather and conditions. Best options given daily conditions can be discussed with Ryan (lodge manager) while at the lodge. Due to our great location and variety of tours offered the hardest part will be selecting which adventure to go on first!
Guests visiting for a 2-day/2-night stay will have the option at one fly-out trip. The forecast will be thoroughly evaluated in an effort to pick the best day & time to go flying. Each fly-out excursion will consume half the day unless you choose to stay longer.
Guests visiting for 3-day/3-night & 4-day/4-night stays will have the option at two fly-out trips.
5-day/5-night packages will include three helicopter fly-outs.
Remember Redoubt Mountain Lodge boasts an absolute wealth of adventures on our home lake, river and immediate area. An abundance of hiking, kayaking & paddleboarding are always available. Enjoy guided fishing for Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, Lake Trout & Salmon. Photograph wildlife and the surrounding landscape or just explore the vast glacier fed lake, its inlet streams and the beauty of Lake Clark National Park.
