Why come to Alaska?
Take it from Bernie Golling, Manager of Salmon Catcher Lodge, “Alaska has breathtaking scenery of majestic mountains, volcanoes and glaciers, as well as up close and personal encounters with wildlife. Come see eagles, bears, moose, whales, and more. Go fishing for monster King Salmon or huge barn door Halibut in the 3 million rivers we have in our wonderland. This is only the beginning of experiencing America’s last frontier, this is Alaska.”
