Tutka Bay Lodge: Packages & Accommodations

Located in Kenai Peninsula, Alaska, United States

Each of the six wooden cabins or guest suites is rustic yet comfortable in design, reflecting the rugged surroundings of the Alaskan wilderness while providing a cozy refuge from its elements. The cabins are connected to the main lodge by a network of boardwalks, and each accommodation is situated on a raised deck for optimal viewing of Tutka Bay’s cerulean waters and the snow-capped mountains beyond. Each accommodation features a spacious living room and private bathroom and is outfitted with fine linens and luxury bath amenities.

Guests create a custom package based on a minimum two-night stay. Upon requesting a reservation, one of our reservation specialists will contact you to help you select the accommodation option that is best for you and to confirm the reservation.


A Taste of Wild Alaska

Designed for National Geographic

We’ve collaborated with Tutka Bay Lodge and Winterlake Lodge—sister properties of the Within the Wild company—to design this six-night itinerary exclusively for National Geographic. The package includes seaplane flights between the two lodges, as well as ferry, ground, and air transfers to and from the Anchorage airport, all meals, and a wide selection of excursions that can be tailored to fit your interests.

  • Soar in a helicopter above the towering peaks of the Alaska Range, touching down in the backcountry to watch for wildlife, trek on glaciers, go white-water rafting or fly-fishing, and more.
  • Rise early and set out with a Winterlake guide on a private photography excursion to capture wildlife in their morning rituals and the mountains aglow at dawn
  • Enjoy a private sea-to-table gourmet dinner prepared in a repurposed crabbing boat, and receive a complimentary cookbook written by acclaimed chef and Tutka lodge owner Kirsten Dixon (National Geographic Exclusive).
  • Seek out brown bears in the wilds of the Katmai Peninsula, or go deep-sea fishing for salmon and halibut in Kachemak Bay.
