NEW TRIP: Bears of Brooks Falls, 6 days from $8250*

Emma’s pick: It’s solitude season!

A life changing trip –follow the whims of the world’s largest coastal grizzlies in Alaska’s Katmai National Park during a scenic and uncrowded time of year—after the lodge at Brooks Falls closes for the season and most visitors disappear.

But numerous bears still congregate here in the fall, indulging in a final round of feasting before settling in for a long winter’s sleep.

Each day, fly by private floatplane from our luxury fly-in wilderness lodge to the Brooks Falls area, touching down in the bears’ domain for this intimate experience.

Along the Naknek and Brooks rivers, capture exhilarating images as they devour the remaining bounty from summer’s salmon runs. Experience Autumn’s earthy tones and sated, relaxed cubs and bears, creating thrilling photography subjects for a rare fall wildlife expedition you won’t find anywhere else.

Departing September 18 or 24 (2018) for 6 days from $8250*, 12 persons only. Call, drop in or email Emma about this trip and check out photographer John Kelley’s slide show of his Alaska trip – here.
