Anvik's Rich History
The Anvik River is rich in historical value in the Athabascan culture. In the 1800’s it was used an overland trade route by Russian arctic explores between the middle Yukon and Russian sea ports in St. Michael, Alaska.
The village of Anvik has a modern day population of about 80 residents. There’s a small museum here that our guests are welcome to visit. The oldest Episcopal Church in the state of Alaska was built in Anvik during the late 1800’s.
Almost 75 miles upriver is the property that the Anvik River Lodge is on. This was once a homestead and still has a couple of original structures from that time period.
