Alaska Eco Tours

we are committed to preserving the wild and pristine nature that characterizes this remarkable place

At Stephan Lake Lodge, we are committed to preserving the wild and pristine nature that characterizes this remarkable place. We run our lodge on renewable energy, use as little fossil fuel as possible and regularly assess our operations to establish more sustainable practices. We offer many opportunities for our guests to truly experience the profound beauty and rustic appeal of the surrounding Talkeetna Mountains. Our signature Eco Tours are tailored to your desires; starting with hiking treks among our five outlying, rustic log cabins.

We’ll leave only footprints behind, but your experience will be rich in wildlife viewing, birding and photography opportunities. From the biggest brown bear down to the smallest blue bell, you will experience the most vibrant details of Alaska.

Guests have the option of choosing:

  • Day Hikes
  • 2-3 Day Treks
  • 5-Day Outings
  • 10-Day Trips

You can wander the mountains by day with our guides and enjoy our cozy, bear-proof cabins by night. If you are out for multiple days, our pilots will fly in to collect trash and resupply your party.

Want to do more than trek?

Each Eco Tour is unique because it is designed specifically for you. We will happily incorporate white water rafting, wilderness skills seminars, northern lights viewing, kayaking, canoeing and more into your Eco Tour—always with the goal of preservation in mind.

Experience the remote Alaskan wilderness...

We are locally owned and operated with over 20 years of guiding experience in Southcentral Alaska. We are proud to call Talkeetna our home and look forward to the opportunity to share this wonderful country with you. We know you will love it as much as we do! Unique to Stephan Lake Lodge is our series of outlying cabins. These rustic log cabins are warm, dry, and comfortable. They form a loop through the Alaskan wilderness and are a comfortable day’s walk from each other. Our goal is that you have an enjoyable, comfortable and safe experience. Our staff know this country well and share our love and respect for it. You will receive the personal attention you deserve and a wilderness experience you will never forget.
