|Lake Clark National Park contains something of all of Alaska within its 4 million acres, with glaciers, volcanoes, tundra, boreal forest, lakes and rivers, and seashore. Home to the Mulchatna herd of migratory barren ground caribou, extensive salmon migrations, nesting shorebirds, swans and waterfowl, nesting eagles, falcons and hawks, arctic terns, tundra wildflowers, spectacular autumn colors in the boreal forest and tundra, moose, wolves, brown, grizzly and black bears, snow-capped peaks rising to over twelve thousand feet, glacier-carved granite spires in the Chigmit and Resurrection Mountains, thundering waterfalls, and much more. A person could spend an entire lifetime exploring this park, and only begin to see it. You won't be photographing in someone else's footsteps here.
Katmai National Park is home to one of the world's largest concentrations of coastal brown bears. The bears make a seasonal migratory circuit following the best available food sources. In early summer they begin on the coast with grasses, clams, and moose; in late June they move to the Brooks River and similar areas for the early red salmon runs, in August they move to more remote rivers and streams in the tundra for later salmon; then on to ripening berries; and then back to some of the rivers and streams in smaller concentrations for late-season salmon runs that last well into October.
Tours are based at The Farm Lodge located in the roadless village of Port Alsworth within Lake Clark National Park.
We travel daily by bush plane (on floats or "tundra tires"), small boat, and on foot to the best locations for the subjects of greatest interest to you. Things change fast in the short sub-arctic summer and fall, and our knowledge of the area allows us to take you to the best spots during any given week of the season.
Tours are generally limited to a maximum of eight people, ensuring that everyone's individual needs are met. Join us for some of the best wilderness photography in the world. Tours are arranged through the Farm Lodge. We offer standard package tours that are an econmical way to photograph a wide variety of subjects, and custom tours that concentrate on specific subjects or locations of interest to you.
