Viking Island

Why You'll Love It

Here at Viking Island, you will find Viking Island, a small fly-in lodge dedicated to fishing. It takes a short flight by floatplane to reach Douglas Lake from Red Lake. Now you are in Woodland Caribou Wilderness Park. This is beautiful remote country, renowned for walleye, northern pike, perch and lake trout fishing as well as wildlife viewing. Our 9 portage access lakes are deep, but not huge, and closely connected with plenty of bays, the perfect setting for a relaxed fishing trip. Staff is onsite for fishing advice and maintenance.

The atmosphere on the island comes from another time. We have a maximum of 30 guests in camp per week and many have been visiting us for years. Choose from 4 fully equipped cabins with complete kitchens and propane BBQs with 2 rustic cabins for large groups to spread out. Linens, blankets, pillows and towels are provided. Stock items like salt, sugar, peanut butter and such are provided. You can bring your own meat, dairy and produce or send us a list and your fresh food will be waiting at our base to fly out with you. A fish cleaning building is available for you to fillet your fish or you can relax and let us take care of it for you. Conservation fishing licences are provided and beverages are sold on-site. The Lodge has Internet and cell phone service. A Solar System provides 120/240 volt of Green Energy 24 hours a day.
