What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.
Meet your guide in King Salmon for an evening pre-trip meeting.
We will board a de Havilland Beaver for a beautiful flight down the peninsula over countless lakes to Aniakchak Crater. The plane will land us near a bright green lake right in the caldera. We will unload, set up a comfortable base camp, and get to exploring!
July 22- 24
We can do as much or as little as we want each day. Your guide will be available to lead hikes, interpret geology and natural history or simply suggest and facilitate your adventure. We’ll have a wind worthy and comfortable camp, so if the wind howls, we have a place to relax. But mostly we’ll be exploring the caldera on foot, investigating geothermal features, climbing high for views and scanning for wildlife. There is no end to the adventures we can have.
On our last day (weather permitting) we are picked up by the same plane which brought us to this rugged paradise. Those that aren’t pack rafting to the coast will fly further down the Peninsula to spend several hours watching walrus before returning to King Salmon in time for a hot shower.
