Kodiak Legends Lodge is located in Larsen Bay, a small town roughly 60 miles southwest of Kodiak. Larsen Bay is efficiently accessible only by airplane or boat, as there are no roadways through Kodiak’s untouched wilderness.
Kodiak Island is located directly south of the Alaska mainland, roughly 250 miles from Anchorage. The body of water separating Kodiak from the mainland is the Shelikof Strait, named after the Russian merchant who founded the first colony in Russian America (Alaska). Directly across the Shelikof is Katmai National Park, famous for its brown bears and spectacular scenery, with stunning glacier lakes and untouched wilderness.
Kodiak Legends Lodge is a quick 25-minute flight across the island with spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife where you are likely to see Sitka Blacktail Deer, Mountain Goats, and Kodiak’s legendary Brown Bear on your flight over.
Guests can book their flights over to Larsen Bay with one of the two local carriers. Island Air (1-800-478-6196) or Servant Air (1-877-487-4400). Island Air offers 3 flights daily Monday through Saturday and one flight on Sunday. Servant Air offers two flights daily Monday through Friday.
After arriving in Larsen Bay, our staff will pick you up at the runway (or the beach in front of the lodge if arriving by floatplane) and bring you to the lodge. The Larsen Bay airport is a 2-minute drive from the lodge.
Direct charters from Anchorage to Larsen Bay are available, please contact us if you would like our assistance in helping to arrange a charter.
Alaska Luxury and Stunning Beauty Await at this Remote Kodiak Island Fishing & Hunting Lodge on Uyak Bay in Larsen Bay Alaska.
At the heart of the operation is the lodge located on Kodiak Island, approximately 60 miles southwest of the city of Kodiak in Larsen Bay, Alaska. Larsen Bay is efficiently accessible only by airplane or boat, because there are no roadways through Kodiak’s untouched wilderness.
The Alaska luxury lodge rests right on the shoreline of Uyak Bay, a stunningly beautiful, protected body of water surrounded by vibrant, green, velvet hills and mountains, capped with sparkling white diamonds of snow. It’s not uncommon to see whales, bears, and sea otters right from the deck of the lodge.
The main lodge has over 5,000 square feet of living space with five suites, a large entertainment room, and the main dining room and kitchen. In addition to the main lodge, we have recently constructed two new VIP cabins. One is a two-bedroom cabin with its own kitchen and fireplace and the second is built right on the beach of Uyak Bay and has three bedroom, large kitchen, lofted ceilings and a large deck overlooking the bay. The main dining room seats 20 people and overlooks the beautiful Uyak Bay. Here you will enjoy gourmet meals prepared by our trained chef who creates memorable dishes with imaginative flavors and local ingredients.
In the evenings, gourmet appetizers are served in the recreation room where you can relax by the fireplace, play a game of pool, connect to the wireless internet or sit down and catch up on world events on our flat screen television. The sauna on the beach overlooking Uyak Bay also provides a great way for guests to relax and wind down after days filled with adventure in the Alaska wilderness.
Our staff is here to serve you and ensure you have an extraordinary and personalized experience. We take care in hiring experienced personnel that share our love for Kodiak Island and do all they can to make sure that guests will also want to return to year after year.
The Ultimate Family Experience – Alaska Luxury that Redefines “Roughing It” and Provides Endless Fun for the Entire Family
While many remote Alaskan wilderness lodges feature primitive lodging and amenities that tend to cater towards a “guys” fishing trip, Kodiak Legends Lodge is a different story…
From an experiential perspective, there is no shortage of activities for the entire family to enjoy. Even if your family is not experienced at fishing, we strongly encourage beginners. Our highly experienced guides take pleasure in introducing newcomers to the wonderful sport of fishing. At certain times during the year the salmon run is so thick that several of our guests have caught fish with their bare hands – just like a bear!
From an experiential perspective, there is no shortage of activities for the entire family to enjoy. Even if your family is not experienced at fishing, we strongly encourage beginners. Our highly experienced guides take pleasure in introducing newcomers to the wonderful sport of fishing. We would be happy to teach you and your family to fly fish, beginning with some basic fly casting sessions – and we can virtually guarantee you’ll hook a fish. At certain times during the year the salmon run is so thick that several of our guests have caught fish with their bare hands – just like a bear!
Other activities that the whole family can participate in together are wildlife viewing for Kodiak’s endless wildlife (including Kodiak brown bears, whales, eagles, sea otters and more), hiking, beach-combing, flight seeing and ATV riding.
In our March 2010 newsletter we featured an article entitled Hunting, Fishing Can Be A ‘Girl Thing’ Too, that describes one of our female guests’ experiences at KLL. Deana came up to our lodge somewhat hesitantly on a trip with her husband and three other couples, but left beyond satisfied!
“This trip was one of the best trips we have ever taken,” Deana Poston remembers. “I don’t think I have ever been more relaxed in my entire life. Whether it was deep sea fishing for halibut and cod, going out in the bay for whale watching, hiking the mountains, hunting for black Sitka deer or caribou, fishing the fresh waters for salmon or trout, walking along the beach and observing the sea otters and seals play in the water, flying to the glaciers, checking out the wildlife and watching bears—or literally doing nothing more than relaxing in the hot tub or eating delicious meals—it was the trip of a lifetime.”
