Flying High in Salmon Falls

Hop in a floatplane from the resort’s own dock and soar over the Misty Fjords National Monument.

By Samantha Coles |  May 7 2021


Salmon Falls is a 51-room resort at the southernmost entrance to Alaska’s Inside Passage, in the midst of the Tongass National Forest on Revillagigedo Island. It’s known for off-grid, luxe escapes and world-class salmon fishing, and naturally lends itself well to adventure. New for 2021, it is offering a series of excursions that make the most of the breathtaking scenery and the heritage of Alaska. Hop in a floatplane from the resort’s own dock and soar over the Misty Fjords National Monument, the surrounding lakes and striking glacial bays; join an expert guide to seek black bears in their natural habitat (with every precaution taken to ensure this is ethical and safe); board a Zodiac and search for humpback and orca whales, seals and sea lions on a guided tour; or, for a more eco-friendly option, kayak through the waters of Clover Passage. Of course, there are still guided and self-guided fishing expeditions on offer, including a new salmon roe and wine pairing. Shellfish more your thing? Go on a behind-the-scenes tour at the Hump Island Oyster Company to learn about the Alaskan shoreline and dine on oysters.

Best for: Spotting the rare animals that call Alaska home
