3 Day Alaskan Adventure
The Perfect Alaskan Getaway
Our 11 day Bucket List Adventure is an incredible experience, but sometimes you just don't have that kind of time! Here's your chance to experience some of Alaska's true "bucket list" activities- all in 3 great big days. This is a perfect 3-day Alaskan adventure for a cruise add-on or Alaska cruise extension. Pickup at your Anchorage hotel (or right at the dock in Seward) is included- plus 3 days of Glacier & Wildlife cruising, sport fishing and Bald eagle floating.....and on day three fly back to Anchorage via charter float plane direct from the lodge. You'll arrive back home with a whole new outlook!
This trip features our Renowned riverside main lodge on the World Famous Kenai River. All trips are double occupancy, with single rooms sometimes available for an additional fee. Evening activities include Moose River Kayaking or Paddle boarding, "by the fire" salmon fly fishing and sometimes, some campfire salmon with s'mores.
World Class Guided Fishing
Your adventure will begin with a pick up at your hotel (3 designated pickup spots) in Anchorage at 7:30 am for the scenic and comfortable trip to Great Alaska Adventure Lodge. After a thorough orientation, you’ll enjoy lunch and meet your guide and head out for the fish. Depending upon the season you'll powerboat or drift boat the Kenai or Kasilof rivers for wild Alaskan Salmon. Return to lodge for happy hour and dinner and overnight at our renowned riverfront lodge. You'll be glad you finally got off that big ship for your Alaska cruise extension.
Kenai Fjords Wildlife & Glacier Cruise
Today you'll be glad you did an Alaska cruise extension... to enjoy Alaska's top single-day cruise in spectacular Kenai Fjords National Park. We'll travel to Seward (and on the way we'll take a short walk to stretch our legs at a glacier close enough to nearly touch), then board the board the wildlife & glacier cruise boat. Orca, Gray whales, Humpbacks, Sea Otter, and a myriad of sea birds including puffins call these amazing fjords home during the summer. Hanging and tidewater glaciers mark your cruise as you explore this incredibly diverse and beautiful marine environment. Return to lodge in time for happy hour, dinner and overnight.
Scenic Bald Eagle Float
Today we'll float the spectacular Kenai River, enjoying our signature scenic bald Eagle flight. Float through the spectacular Kenai Wildlife refuge, spotting Moose, Eagles and amazing spawning beds of the salmon that call the region home. If you prefer a more active trip, you may opt for a guided hike or a paddle on the meandering Moose river, before returning to the lodge at Noon. Checkout time at 2:00 pm.
Recommended Gear List
However you choose to arrive, please be "dressed for adventure" , as you will not be checking into your rooms until you return to the lodge that evening (approximately 6:00 pm). Please see our pre trip info for specific what to bring list. All necessary gear is provided on our daily safari experiences, but quality rain gear and footwear are two necessities. We highly recommend bringing a medium sized day pack to carry all of your essentials on your daily adventures, along with a water bottle. That same pack or bag can be your carry-on item when you board the plane heading to and from Alaska, so it will do double duty! Be sure to bring a water bottle!

Pickup is typically at 7:30 - 8:00 a.m. (time varies slightly each day based upon number and location of pickups). You'll arrive at the main lodge around 10:30 for check in and orientation. We pick up at the cruise dock in Seward or Whittier for an additional fee.
