Alaska's 1st Renewable Energy Aurora Viewing Panoramic Windows on the Lake ICE - Ice Fishing Cabins!

Innovation and creative wilderness tour concepts have always been part of our vision! We always strive to further the experience our clients will have with nature and are now very excited to announce, that we have finished our 1st renewable and energy autonomous ice fishing cabins. Not only were we the first company that developed ice fishing cabins that were capable of withstanding -40F, while being moved around and from the lake, we also came up with the concept of ice fishing and Aurora Viewing all at the same time on the lake ice without any light, or noice pollution (e.g. from running a generator).
This means with our solar panel we can solely rely on renewable energy sources! We are able to save and produce our own energy, while cooking fresh caught salmon over a Alaskan grown wood fired stoves inside our fully insulated (floor to roof) ice fishing cabins. We have hand crafted and perfected these cabins over many years fishing and guiding in the harshest climate, to create the maximum ice fishing experience for our clients! You will be able to enjoy the fishing and Northern lights with no back ground noice such as otherwise commonly used generators.

If you agree that at -30F saving a few bucks fishing inside a tent shelter with no insulation has its drawback, then consider our premier innovative concept tours such as the "Quick & Easy" "Fish & Cook" or "Aurora & Ice", or "Snowmobile & Ice" fishing tours and have a true bucket list experience. We believe in conserving energy and sparing no effort to keep producing quality and prime fishing and wilderness experiences! This is where the real savings are for you!!
