Flight Segments Note:
All flights to King Salmon originate in Anchorage, Alaska. Most of you will have two flight segments, the first from your home city to Anchorage, Alaska, the second from Anchorage, Alaska to King Salmon, Alaska. Your flight to King Salmon will require a plane change in Anchorage before continuing on to King Salmon. Depending upon where your home city is, you may or may not overnight in Anchorage, although most will.
Getting from the Airport to the Alaska Fishing Lodge:
On changeover day we will meet your arriving flight in the town of King Salmon. Our pilots and guides will be at the airport terminal waiting for you. If you arrive in King Salmon early, there are various restaurants and bars within walking distance – look for the Alaska Rainbow Lodge van outside the terminal, deposit your bags in the back, and relax! Don’t worry about getting left behind, we will find you. After greeting you at the King Salmon terminal we will then drive one mile to our floatplane base on the Naknek River. From there, we will then fly you to the lodge, a 30-minute flight in our lodge-owned float equipped aircraft.
Due to new guests arrival we must ask all our departing guest to be out of the lodge between 8:00 AM and no later than 12:00 noon on you day of departure. Most new guests will arrive on the same flight you are departing on. Special exceptions can be made at the time of booking your trip.

NOTE… Some very useful information:
Occasionally Pen Air leaves bags in Anchorage when their planes are full (read more about choosing flights on our blog), which is bad news for our guests. There are two flights we meet in King Salmon. If you elect to arrive any earlier, you will have a wait in King Salmon until we fly in to pick up. If you arrive late, you could incur a charter fee for the flight to our Lodge from King Salmon. The local air taxi charges approximately $425.

Here’s The Fine Print:
Ron Hayes or Alaska Rainbow Lodge will not be responsible or liable for any loss, damage or injury to participants, personal property, or for any cancellations, expenses or delays incurred as a result of weather, transportation or other conditions over which we have no control. Management reserves the right to withdraw and/or cancel any excursions offered at any time and make changes in itineraries as may be necessary for safety and proper handling of said excursions. All guests have a responsibility to disclose to management any special medical, physical or dietary conditions. We make no compromise to assure a safe trip; however, outdoor activities of this nature are not entirely “risk free”. We recommend that you secure travel and trip cancellation insurance. Check with your insurance broker for options on this type insurance. All rates are subject to change without notice but will not change once booking is confirmed.
Deposits are accepted under the following conditions: in the event of cancellation more than 180 days prior to the starting date, the full amount will be refunded; cancellations less than 180 days but more than 90 days, no refund will be made; cancellation less than 90 days, the full amount of the trip will become due and payable unless a replacement can be found. Deposit of 50% per person is required for final confirmation. Because bookings are made so far in advance there will be no reduction in rate for guests who voluntarily eliminate any of the services included in the standard rate, or who depart the lodge prior to the end of their scheduled stay. Unless you book the entire lodge for the requested date, you will be willing to share accommodations that are considered reasonable.
