Salmon Falls Resort is an intimate full-service waterfront resort in Ketchikan, Alaska that has announced an extended booking season through Oct. 1, 2020. Situated at the southernmost entrance to Alaska’s iconic Inside Passage (and located just 90 minutes from Seattle), the resort is unveiling incredible all-inclusive travel specials and thrilling new offerings for travelers seeking last-minute trips and boundless outdoor explorations. We love the idea of getting out and enjoying the fresh air, and Salmon Falls Resort is rolling out the red carpet of opportunities…
Due to the lack of cruise ships this year, there have been huge changes to the Alaskan eco-system, and has resulted in a second run of Coho Salmon, which is rare for this time of year. More fish combined with an influx of consumers looking for a convenient escape in the United States’ great outdoors led to the extended season. The resort will also be opening six weeks earlier in 2021 due to the increased demand. The vast natural splendor in the midst of the Tongass National Forest on Revillagigedo Island lends itself to adventure and social distancing.
“We are thrilled to introduce an extended season with exciting new programming and favorable rates in a time when travelers are seeking a change from their daily routines,” said Matt Herod, General Manager. “Salmon Falls Resort is an accessible and safe destination surrounded by the world’s most beautiful scenery, yet just a short flight away from the West Coast.”
With just 51 rooms, the resort has catered to discerning travelers for more than 30 years. It is best known for its majestic setting and world-class salmon fishing. Ketchikan has been called “The Salmon Capital of the World,” and the area is beloved for its rich Alaskan culture and breathtaking wilderness.
For a limited time, the resort is offering its popular all-inclusive guided fishing package with special rates starting at $1,500 for three nights, available for travel through the end of September. Three meals per day, airport transfers, fishing gear, accommodations, fishing and catch processing are all included. Cancellations are accepted up to 72 hours prior to arrival with no penalty or fee. Guests also have the opportunity to lock in remarkable rates now for stays next season, beginning May 1, 2021, with all-inclusive room prices starting at $350, per night.
New experiences at the resort for 2021 will focus on adventure, cultural and culinary themes that honor the extraordinary setting and heritage of the Alaskan Panhandle. Standout offerings include fishing expeditions to remote locales, flightseeing float plane tours to the Misty Fjords National Monument and guided bear watching throughout the Alaskan rainforest.
Rooms at Salmon Falls Resort are outfitted in lodge-style décor accentuated by deep earthy tones with custom wood finishes and native Alaskan art. The resort boasts stunning views of the western Behm Canal and mountain ranges. Guests enjoy access to Timbers restaurant on-site, which is open to the public, and features an array of delectable Alaskan seafood specialties paired with wines, microbrews and live music each weekend. Flexible indoor/outdoor meeting and event spaces are ideal for corporate incentive groups and breathtaking weddings. The resort is open seasonally, typically from May through late September.
Salmon Falls Resort’s sister property, Edgewater Inn Restaurant & Marina, is located 15 minutes away in downtown Ketchikan area, and is open year-round. Rates start at $169, per night. Popular activities for both resorts include hiking, kayaking, bear spotting, rainforest ziplining, whale watching, and shopping from the local artisans.
Committed to providing a safe environment for guests and staff, the resort has modified its policies and operating procedures with insight from the world’s leading health authorities. Enhanced health and safety measures due to COVID-19 include social distancing throughout the resort; stringent cleaning measures; personal protective equipment for staff; in-room safety kits; and more. Upon arrival at Ketchikan International Airport, guests must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival in Alaska. Salmon Falls will assist with optional testing services and send tests directly to travelers if requested.
