Where else can you wake up to see 1,000 lb. Alaska Coastal Brown Bears, in a remote wilderness one day, and then be fishing in waters teeming with wild salmon 250 miles away the next? Or cruise a glacial fjords one day, and mountain bike to a mountain lake the next? Whatever the day brings, you'll end your days at our famous lodge, overlooking the Kenai and Moose Rivers, and share your day's adventure with other guests and staff at our "nearly world famous" Happy Hour.
Great Alaska founder Laurence John comes from a long line of adventurers. In the early 1980’s he ventured north to Alaska, where he met Alaskan homesteaders Laura Pedersen and her daughter, Kathy. These two families joined forces to build a vision and a future: The Great Alaska lodge, built on the site of the original Pedersen homestead, on the shores of the spectacular Kenai River.
Drawn by the same lure of adventure, Laurence’s son, Kent, soon joined the company. Together, father and son have expanded, refined and redefined the legendary guest experience at Great Alaska. Three generations of the family have proudly shared Alaska with our guests.
