The Brown Bears of Katmai adventure begins and ends in Anchorage, Alaska (ANC). Plan flights to arrive to Anchorage anytime on day 1 of the itinerary. Plan flights to depart Anchorage anytime on day 5. Transfers will be provided both upon arrival on day 1 from Anchorage International Airport and on day 5 for your return flight home.
All internal flights on this trip are included in the rate, including round-trip Anchorage-King Salmon and King Salmon-Brooks Lodge flights. The flights between Anchorage and King Salmon allow 1 checked bag up to 50 pounds and one carry-on bag per person; an additional checked bag is $25 and a third checked bag is $50. The flights between King Salmon and Brooks Lodge are booked aboard small planes. While these are regularly scheduled flights they are almost like a flightseeing excursion and we feel this is part of the Alaska experience. Baggage limits on these flights are 50 pounds per person and travelers will be charged $1 per pound for additional luggage.
Whether you are looking for light activity options or more challenging outdoor pursuits, the guides can tailor most excursions to suit your skill level. Adventure activities may include bear viewing, fishing, nature walks, a guided bus tour, flightseeing, canoeing and kayaking.
