Guest Testimonial

Our Adventure to Iceland is ended. We had the most spectacular time of our life I think. I have no words to describe it. We felt like ‘kings’. We were treated very well and all of the guys from Land Rover and Abercrombie & Kent were amazing. Like we knew them for years. It was unforgettable. I have to go back.

 The lodge is located in Kachemak Bay, near Homer on the Kenai Peninsula and adjacent to Kachemak Bay State Park. Situated between Halibut Cove and Seldovia, the secluded Tutka Bay reaches 11km into the glacier studded Kenai Mountains. The lodge buildings are situated on a narrow strip of land that is bordered on two sides by water. Extravagant decks and walkways connect each building which is placed along the edge of the land, with ample views of the water and lush wilderness. The remote Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge offers a unique Alaskan experience for travellers looking for premium comfort in a ‘less travelled’ place, and is accessible by water taxi from Homer or by float plane from Anchorage at an additional cost. The water taxi ride between Homer and the lodge takes about 25 minutes.

The lodge offers five spacious and charming accommodations, each with a private bath, satellite TV and views of the ocean, mountains and forest. From the lodge solarium, guests can enjoy sweeping views of the islands and inlets of Little Tutka Bay, as well as the impressive Jakolof Peak.
