Larsen Bay Lodge is located in the heartland of the rugged and beautiful 5,000 square mile Kodiak Island, (which is the second largest island in the United States). Kodiak Island is about the size of Connecticut and is an extension of the Kenai Mountains that form the Kenai Peninsula 90 miles to the northeast. No matter where you are on Kodiak Island, you are always within 15 miles of the coast.Thousands of years ago the entire Kodiak archipelago was covered in glaciers which carved its dramatic landscape and deep fjord-like bays. Then abundant rains, snow, and wind, have applied the finishing touches on the lush, green, rugged topography. In spring and summer, as you fly from the town of Kodiak to Larsen Bay the mountains are carpeted in beautiful green vegetation accented by smatterings of spruce trees giving the island its nickname, "The Emerald Isle".
The community of Larsen Bay is beautifully set at the mouth of the protected waters of Larsen Bay where they join in with Uyak Bay. The gorgeous mountains surrounding the many protected bays are reflected on the crystal clear waters making for unforgettable images and breathtaking sunrises!No matter what the season, the landscape is always spectacular Whether it is the wild flowers of summer, the berries and bright colors of fall, or snow covered mountains, Kodiak is bound to be your new favorite place to visit!
