About Us

We are located in Ambler Alaska

A True Alaskan Experience

Kobuk River Lodge rests along the remote edges of Kobuk Valley National Park in the West Arctic Borough. Come stay with us and experience all that the remote, extraordinary beauty and culture of Onion Portage offers. Get away from the day-to-day grind and glide along the pristine Alaskan waters staging the boundless surrounding mountains. Kobuk River lays claim to the largest run of Sheefish in the world and this is your premier opportunity to fish it (along with grayling and pike!). Kobuk River is one of the very few places in the world that offers plenty of opportunities to fish large numbers of 15 to 30 pound Sheefish on fly or light tackle, and your experienced guide knows how to put you on them. 


If you’re looking for a true Alaskan treat, don’t miss a unique chance to witness the Northwest Arctic Caribou Herd migration, which begins in late August. Our professionally licensed guide leads breathtaking tours and hikes through the waters and Alaskan tundra to Onion Portage. This is one of the few opportunities in North America to view Caribou up close, in numbers nearing 400,000. Call us today for more details!
