Visit us as a paying guest for a weekend for $500 or a whole week for $1000 per person.
Basic package includes stay and 3 meals. There are options to add on, like guided herbal walks; taking some fish back home; observing commercial net fishing, etc. For example you have a family of 4 want to stay, but only two people want options, so we made it possible to have add on options.
Delicious meals are prepared from scratch with the highest quality natural ingredients.
Dining is in main cabin with the ocean and mountains view and the creek, where salmon swims to spawn.
Or dining at the camp fire on the beach where creek meets the ocean.
Watching salmon swim in a little creek is a magic experience and its rare to find place to see this kind of magic.
Choosing more active or relax adventure is up to you. If you are more adventurous, you can join us on a commercial net fishing boat for a day and learn how salmon makes its way to the table.
Or for more relaxing vacation stay on the land, walk on the beach explore the forest, listen to the birds singing, and they are singing loud sometimes.
You can roam freely without fearing to meet a bear, Kalgin island is the only place in Alaska with no bears.
Walk in beautiful meadows with millions of flowers,
Daiva can teach you how to identify, collect and prepare herbs.
Eating raspberries from the bush on the hill with ocean and mountains is a superior kind of meditation.
Feed the friendly fox, whenever she pleases to visit us in the yard.
Bath in sauna and plunge into cold creek to refresh. Watch first hand how Daiva and David built such place on remote island and living self reliant life maybe inspire you to do the same or helped to decide to do otherwise, if you ever thought about off-grid living for yourself. The experience of staying on the island is extraordinary, the memories for a lifetime. If your budget is tight, but time is not and you still want to visit us, read on...
2. The second way to visit Kalgin island is to volunteer for 3 to12 weeks. We provide stay and delicious meals in exchange of helping as with our tasks and projects.
We have plenty of tasks to help - guiding paying guests, assisting to prepare meals and clean after words; to prepare foods for winter;
