Featured Trip

Coastal Brown Bears of Alaska

  • June 19th to 23rd, 2018
  • $2895

Join us on the journey of a lifetime this summer to photograph the majestic Brown Bears of Coastal Alaska.  Coastal Brown Bears are massive with adult boars regularly reaching weights of 1200 pounds as they gorge on salmon, clams & sedges on the stunning coastline of the Alaskan Peninsula. Our trip takes us to the shores of Lake Clark National Park where we will spend several days at a beautiful beach-front camp in the wilderness amongst the great bears. Lake Clark National Park is remote and about 150 air miles from Anchorage. There are no roads leading into the park and the only access is by bush-plane!
