What follows is a general flow of events. Expect the unexpected and prepare to be flexible.

August 8

Arrive in Anchorage at your leisure and make your way to the Copper Whale Inn. If time permits, make sure to visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center. (Lodging included. Meals, transport and activities on your own.)

August 9

After breakfast at the Copper Whale a van from Rust’s Flying Service will meet you at the Copper Whale Inn  at 7:15 am and drive you to the float-plane airport, where you meet your chartered plane for the flight north into the Alaska Range. Once you settle into your cabin and make a massage appointment, your choice of activities is nearly endless. (B,L,D)

August 10

The Lodge’s helicopter will take you on an adventure never to be forgotten, and return you for a dinner almost equal to the surroundings. (B,L,D)

August 11

A full day at Winterlake Lodge to enjoy the trails, lake and amenities. (B,L,D)

August 12

The flight from Winterlake to Tutka is breathtaking. After breakfast you board a plane heading down the spine of the Aleutian Range. When you land right at the lodge’s dock you will be met by an exceptional staff and introduced to your new home by the sea. (B,L,D)

August 13

A trip to Katmai National Park to view its famed bears. (B,L,D)

August 14

Kayaking, hiking or exploring the nearby community are the order of the day. (B,L,D)

August 15

After breakfast and packing, head to the dock for a ride across the water to the town of Homer, where you transfer to the Airport and catch a small jet to Anchorage. Weather permitting you will arrive in Anchorage shortly after noon. (B)

Such a joy to spend days where time was meaningless.  A wonderful adventure and I would like to return next year for a longer, more challenging trip.

You mentioned to me in an email that you have terrific guides - you do indeed.  Dave is a superb guide. He is personable, knowledgeable about the Arctic, and has excellent group management skills. I appreciated the time he spent teaching me to read the map, which is not easy without trails.   He allowed Adrian and me to hike at our own pace and he encouraged all of us to explore the area surrounding our campsites. I know the others would concur in my praise.

All Transport and transfers excepting on 8/8. Meals as specified above including wine and beer at Tutka and Winterlake Lodges.

Weather is Alaska is wildly variable and it is best to prepare for everything. Rain is assured but heat is also likely. Most of the time it is warmer at Winterlake than it is at Tutka but bring plenty of layers and good rain-gear regardless. Luggage restrictions apply on small planes so pack carefully.

"The wilderness was spectacular, the leadership perfect."
"I am just finishing my tenth trip with you guys. As always, the trip was more than I expected and I had a great time. See you next year!"
"Of all outfitters with whom we have worked (and that is quite a number), you were by far the most organized and responsive."
"That feeling of wide open wonder, the possibilities for nearly limitless wandering, and the image of those proud caribou...that will stay with me a long time"
"Our guide was an encyclopedia on legs. He was always willing and ready to teach, to talk, to listen, to do another hike, or to lie low in camp if we were beat. He truly gave us the trip we wanted!"
