Nestled on the north shore of Middle Island in Sitka Sound, and surrounded by the largest temperate rainforest on Earth, Latitude 57 Lodge has transformed from being a rustic fishing lodge to become, perhaps, the finest wilderness resort in Alaska. This jewel of the Alexander Archipelago offers a perfect blend of opulence wrapped in family-style hospitality. Think of it as your own remote wilderness sanctuary, easily reached by boat from beautiful Sitka, Alaska.
Sitka Sound, and the outer coast waters of Baranof Island offers one of the most spectacular fishing experiences to be found anywhere on Earth. The pristine waters of the Sound and Gulf of Alaska are absolutely teeming with marine life, and all five species of Paciifc salmon, halibut, lingcod and a stunning variety of other bottom fish can be caught just minutes from our dock. With exceptional knowledge of the area and a passion for great service, we offer high-quality, all-inclusive ocean sportfishing trips for every type of angler, from first timers to seasoned pros.
Here, you will experience custom-curated adventures among the myriad islands scattered throughout Sitka Sound and the surrounding coastal wilderness. Enjoy world-class ocean sportfishing, set out by expedition boat for a personalized photo-safari, and explore secret passages and kelp forests where only a sea kayak can take you. Ashore, you will have numerous options for exploring the lush Tongass rainforest – on foot, by electric mountain bike or van. These spectacular experiences, and more, are included in your Latitude 57 vacation. Join as many adventures as you would like!
At the Wild Connections Spa, tucked away in a peaceful cathedral of old-growth giants, our skilled wellness practitioners help you shed the stresses of modern life while reconnecting with the healing power of nature. We provide a full menu of personalized transformational experiences, including: vinyasa flow yoga, signature Latitude massage, rainforest baths, guided journey breathwork, sauna & cold-water plunges and more. The inner journey you choose is included in your stay.
Sitka is the most beautiful, friendly, and historically interesting community in Alaska. It is home to the Alaska Raptor Center, Fortress of the Bear, Sitka National Historic Park, four excellent museums, and several art galleries and stores that feature locally made items. We highly recommend that you set aside one day of your time – before, during or after your stay at Latitude 57 Lodge – to immerse yourself in this fascinating community. Our staff will do everything they can to assist you in making it another highlight of your vacation.
Both accessible and remote, Latitude 57 Lodge & Resort is the perfect place for family and friends to gather for special events, and for corporate groups to team build, strategize and celebrate company successes.

The beauty and tranquility of the surrounding wilds sets the perfect stage for all kinds of magic to happen, and our great Alaska hospitality team will work closely with you to make your event the hit of a lifetime.
