Izembek Lodge - World famous wetlands, large concentrations of waterfowl, ideal Alaskan destination.

Cold Bay is located on the Alaska Peninusula approximately 600 miles southwest of Anchorage (less than a 2 hour flight). It is considered the gateway to the Aleutian Islands and is accessible on a daily basis by regional airlines from Anchorage, Alaska. Cold Bay has a population of about 75 residents and borders Izembek National Wildlife Refuge.

Izembek Lagoon contains the largest eel grass bed in North America and encompasses about 300,000 acres of salt water lagoon, tundra, and fresh water lakes. It is considered one of the most important wetlands in the world, and in 1986 became the first wetland in the United States to receive global recognition by being named to the list of Wetlands of International Importance.

The pristine environment and abundant food resources of Izembek Lagoon attracts large concentrations of waterfowl for a two month period beginning in late August and lasting until early November. Hunting pressure is extremely light due to the remoteness of this location, ensuring a quality experience.

Large numbers of Canada geese, the world’s population of Pacific Black Brant, puddle and sea ducks call Izembek Lagoon home. Izembek Lagoon drains into the Being Sea, one of the most productive bodies of water in the world. Izembek Lagoon and the surrounding area harbor abundant numbers of fish and wildlife, making Izembek Lodge an ideal destination for the sportsman.
