What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Meet your guide in King Salmon, AK for pre-trip meeting in the evening.
Or if you joined us on the Katmai Bears Trip just prior you will fly into King Salmon this day and have a chance for a hot shower.
Our flight out the Alaska Peninsula departs in the morning. We fly over the Bering Sea Coast scanning the beaches, observing the fishing fleet, catching glimpses of volcanoes, and marveling at the enormous wilderness below.
July 12 - 14
Weather and wildlife will guide our activities. We will camp nearly a mile from the walrus colony as to not disturb them. Each day will start with a hike down the beach and across the tundra. Walrus can be observed from the beach or we can climb to the top of the bluffs for sweeping views up and down the Alaska Peninsula. Below, the walrus should be resting and bellowing. When not watching walrus or sea birds, we can wander the beach and tundra, enjoying this remote and unique landscape. Our weather-worthy camp turns the storm ravaged coast into a home away from home and allows us to focus on the wildlife we have come to see.
After a good breakfast we have a little time to explore. Mid-day we say our good byes to the coast and head back towards “civilization”. Weather permitting we arrive in King Salmon early in the evening.
