Caribou Lodge is family owned, and operated by Joe & Bonnie Bramante, and Zac & Alyssa Bramante

Long before owning the lodge both Joe and Zac helped the original owners guide hiking and camping trips during the busy summer seasons.

Joe and Bonnie were married in Montana in 2004 and shortly after that headed north on the Alcan Highway to put down roots in Alaska.

Joe was born in northwest Montana and spent his childhood hunting and hiking all through the Rocky Mountains. He is a very skilled outdoorsman and hiking guide who has spent his time in Alaska expanding his knowledge of the flora and fauna so as to share a complete and memorable experience with guests from all around the world.


Bonnie has thrived since moving off the grid, exploring Alaska with Joe, their baby girl Emma, and their lovable dog, Howie

She was born and raised along with 3 sisters in the mountains of northwest Idaho and Montana and has always been passionate about the outdoors. She is a lover of strong coffee, good books, and the Alaskan wilderness.

Zac and Alyssa were both born and raised in Montana. They married in 2009 after both moving to Alaska.  Recently they moved from Palmer, Alaska out to the property to help Joe and Bonnie run the lodge full time, but they remain the faces of Caribou Lodge Alaska in the business communities of Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley. They are also raising their daughters, Chloe and Eiley, and in their down time, enjoying all the things Alaska has to offer.
