But you should PREPARE.
Because there is a wide variety of services and accommodations available, with different costs.
Are you looking for luxury and service?
Then take a deluxe Alaska fishing lodge, but expect to pay usually from $4,200 to $6,000 per week (or more) per person.
For a smaller budget the family-style fishing lodges, with costs from $2,500 to $4,000 (or more) per week per person, or the tent lodges, with prices vary from $1,000 to $2,500 per week per person, also offer outstanding service and accommodations.
What to expect for this money?
Your fishing lodge may overlook turquoise rivers or wonderful mountain ranges.
And most lodges offer the serenity of a wilderness retreat and the thrill of Alaskan adventure.
In the evening, after enjoying a day of fishing, there is the comfort of a crackling fire, or you can warm up in one of the outdoor hot tubs.
A deluxe fishing lodge offers the utmost in comfort, relaxation and romance. You will find vaulted ceilings made of naturally finished wood, cozy sitting areas with wood-burning stoves and private porches.
What could be better?
And your fishing lodge usually offers fly-outs, boat fishing packages or related services.
Rent a tent lodge and you will save a lot of money.
These are the real basic, streamside, lakeside or bayside facilities catering to hard-core anglers.
The rustic ambience is usually enhanced by plentiful, home-style food (mmmmmmm…), and lots of fishing opportunities (24 hours a day if desired).
It all depends on your budget.
Research and referrals are generally the best ways to locate the better operations.
Prices vary depending on location, time of the year, and accommodations/services provided.
I like those operations set in areas far off the beaten path and run by locals. They serve you a delicious local breakfast each morning.
And your lunch is packed for your fishing trip.
Enjoy your stay!
