Day 3

Let's Get To Fishing!

In the world of Alaskan fishing, the area surrounding Lake Clark stands out for its unmatched variety and abundance of fish species. From untouched high-elevation lakes to meandering tundra rivers and the vast ocean, the opportunities for anglers are limitless. Alaska, with its impressive array of over 550 fish species, three million lakes, and twelve thousand rivers, can be daunting for those seeking guidance on where to go, which fish to pursue, and when to embark on their adventure. That’s where your hosts at Lake Clark Lodge step in — to help you navigate through the choices and tailor your experience to meet your expectations.

Day 4

Fishing With The Bears

Within the rich ecosystem of Lake Clark National Park, both brown bears and black bears find an ideal habitat. Chininita Bay, Crescent Lake, and Silver Salmon Creek emerge as prime bear viewing spots within the park. These areas often witness early runs of pink, chum, and sockeye salmon, drawing bears from far-reaching distances. As they prepare for winter hibernation, bears capitalize on every chance to bolster their weight. Lake Clark Lodge expands bear viewing opportunities to remote and secluded locations, offering guests distinctive and intimate encounters with these majestic creatures.

Day 5

The More Remote, The Less People And More Wildlife

Amidst the myriad of experiences this lodge offers, wildlife encounters are practically assured. Whether you aim to capture the most amusing animal snapshot or aspire to be the next nature photographer of the year, your journey will offer abundant opportunities to witness wild animals in the heart of Alaska’s renowned wilderness.

Day 6

Lake Clark From The Air

Your journey includes a flight through Lake Clark Pass. In clear weather, you’ll soar low, treated to vistas of numerous glaciers and U-shaped valleys. As civilization fades from consciousness, a transformative experience unfolds, disconnecting you from the usual reality. While you may snap a few photos with your phone, the true rejuvenation comes from unplugging. From takeoff to landing, the flightseeing adventure carves an unforgettable chapter in your exploration of the Alaska trip you’ve always dreamed of.

Day 7

Fly Out To Anchorage

Let out a sigh as you return to Anchorage via a float plane in the morning after one last meal by the lake. Your private driver/guide will meet you at the Anchorage Airport to take you on your own private in depth tour of Anchorage including a visit to the Alaska Native Heritage Center. Relax at your Anchorage hotel that evening and in the morning enjoy a complimentary breakfast followed by a private transfer to the airport before your departure flight home with your memories of Lake Clark National Park’s magic.
