Chances are if you enjoy wildlife and escaping to the wilderness, you also want to do something to preserve it -- which is where this Alaska lodge comes in. Described as a wilderness eco-lodge, the Kenai Riverside Lodge consists of 16 different cabins on the banks of the Kenai River. Run by Alaska Wildland Adventures, the ecotourism site provides a down-to-earth getaway.

While the accommodations might feel mellow, the activities are anything but. The Alaska lodge is ideal for sportfishing enthusiasts and is considered the base camp for a number of Guided Journeys including rafting and hiking. They also offer naturalist programs, a wood-fired sauna and family-style dining. There are a number of packages available too, if you're pining for the fjords or want to check out the backcountry.
