Odds are you’ve stumbled upon our website for one (or more) of a few different reasons. Perhaps you’re looking to fish some of the most celebrated waters in remote Alaska. Maybe you’re interested in learning more about some of the best bear and wildlife viewing experiences on the planet. It could be you want to witness the magic of Alaska’s Bristol Bay region from the best seat in the house – the air.

If any of those strike a chord, we have good news: You’re in the right place.

Who We Are

Bristol Adventures is rooted in tradition that stretches all the way back to 1950 when Ray Petersen’s Northern Consolidated Airlines first launched the Angler’s Paradise lodges, recognized as Alaska’s first fly out sport fishing lodges. The flourishing enterprise was eventually dubbed “Katmailand” and became Alaska’s premiere sport fishing and bear viewing destination.

Bristol Bay Native Corp (BBNC) purchased Katmailand in 2016 from the Petersen family. Brooks, Grosvenor, and Kulik Lodge, along with full service flight provider, Katmai Air, join BBNC’s previously acquired Mission Lodge under the Bristol Adventures umbrella, maintaining their rich and unique legacy, while providing exceptional service, personal attention, and world-class fishing and wildlife experiences to our guests.

Among these lodges is Alaska’s very first fly out sport fishing lodge (Kulik Lodge), an intimately sized remote “micro fishing lodge” that’s ideal for small groups or families (Grosvenor Lodge), the only lodge within walking distance to the famous bear viewing at Brooks Falls (Brooks Lodge), and one of Bristol Bay’s finest luxury fly out fishing lodges (Mission Lodge).

Whether you’re a hardcore angler looking to fish hard, an adventure chaser hoping to take in all that Bristol Bay has to offer, or a vacationer looking to escape the daily grind, our lineup of lodges caters to all that is Bristol Bay.

Thanks for joining the adventure. We look forward to sharing our experiences with you.
