Our Policies


A credit card is required to hold your reservation. We accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover. Your credit card is used only to hold your reservation. Fishing trips will be charged to your credit card 48 hours prior to the trip. Rafting trips will not be charged until time of check-in for trip departure.

Cancellations & Refunds

Cancellations made more than 7 days prior to departure will be fully refunded. Cancellations 7 days to 48 hours prior to departure will be subject to 50% charge. No refunds on cancellations within 48 hours of departure. No refunds for non-appearance without notification. No refunds for inclement weather.

Reservation date may be changed once at no extra charge by contacting us at least 48 hours prior to original trip or cabin date (subject to availability of desired trip or cabin date).

Alaska State Fish and Game Bag Limits

Alaska Wildland Adventures and Kenai River Trips strictly adhere to all regulations pertaining to restrictions, harvest, and catch and release limits of all fish species as mandated by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. From time to time, we may establish even stricter company policies with regard to catch limits and catch and release if it is deemed to follow best practices for the continued sustainability of certain species. In these situations, company policy shall supersede state regulations, and these policies may be implemented at any time, even during the course of the current season, depending upon the species and the situation.

We believe this approach is in the best interest of the conservation and perpetuation of Alaska's fish populations and the surrounding ecosystem upon which fish species depend. Upon booking a fishing trip with us, you agree to comply with these policies.

Important Disclosures for Our Guests

Alaska Wildland Adventures owns and operates the Kenai Backcountry Lodge, the Kenai Riverside Lodge, the Kenai Riverside Fishing Program, and the Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge. It does not control certain other third-party entities which may provide goods and services for your trip, including, for example, air or other transportation companies, other lodging facilities, food service providers, and equipment suppliers. The costs and scheduling of travel, accommodations, and associated services, unless otherwise specified, are the responsibility of our guests, and any delays, cancellations, or other travel alterations affecting a guest’s AWA itinerary will be the sole responsibility of the guest. Alaska Wildland Adventures will not assume any additional costs and shall not be liable for any delay, damage, injury, death, or loss of any kind whatsoever due to the acts, omissions, or negligence of any third-party service or transportation providers.

A copy of our Participant Agreement and Guest Information Form will be supplied to each visitor shortly during the reservation process, and these forms must be completed and returned to our office in advance of the trip.

AWA reserves the sole discretion and right to adjust pricing, programs, scheduled dates, and itineraries in the event certain conditions outside of its control threaten the health, security, and safety of its employees, guests, or property, including those caused by ‘force majeure’ events (including but not limited to war, acts of terrorism, pandemics and epidemics, civil strife, labor conflicts, and natural disasters), changes to national or global economic environments, acts of governmental authorities, and any other conditions resulting in the frustration, impracticability, or impossibility of undertaking AWA activities. In the event of a cancellation or major itinerary change due to such events, AWA will best assess the amount of available refund or credit toward a future trip with AWA. If a trip is cancelled in progress, the tour operator will best attempt to prorate a refund based on the number of days not complete. In any case, AWA cannot guarantee any refund amount due to cancellations beyond our control and strongly recommends that all guests purchase travel insurance.

Disclaimer of Liability

At Alaska Wildland Adventures, we spare no effort to assure a safe trip; however, outdoor activities of this nature are not entirely "risk free." We cannot assume responsibility for injury to participants or personal belongings or for time or expense incurred. You will be required to fill out an acknowledgment of risk form.

Drone Policy

Alaska Wildland Adventures has a strict "No Unmanned Aircraft or Drone" policy, similar to that of the National Park Service. This policy supports our guiding principles and respects wildlife and the wilderness areas we visit. AWA may make exceptions to this policy from time to time for its short promotional productions where compliant with regulations.
