Location of Adventure

Physical Requirements
Moderate 
The activities on our Alaska wildlife adventure are diverse. The longest required walk is two miles roundtrip over a relatively flat wooden boardwalk to Brooks Falls in Katmai, to observe the brown bears. Trail surfaces for our various walks vary from pavement to uneven natural terrain. While all travelers must be able to walk at least two miles, some longer hikes are available for those who desire. Our kayaking activity on Fox Island involves paddling for approximately two hours in conditions that are typically quite calm. We stress that travelers are not required to participate in every activity, but all participants must be able to walk two miles.
Important Information About This Trip
This trip ventures far afield from the typical Alaska tour circuit where large motorcoaches move long lines of cruise clients to crowded destinations. A few details you should be aware of: The day we spend traveling from the remote heart of Denali National Park to Talkeetna is rather long (10 hours), but it includes magnificent scenery the entire way, and we travel by both small bus and train. A prime focus of this trip is bears, which, naturally, should be treated with caution. At Brooks Falls, thousands of visitors have traveled to view bears in the past 50 years and, to our knowledge, there has never been a bear attack. But we never know exactly what bears are thinking, so we ask our travelers to consider this and pay close attention to the rules set forth by the park rangers. Accommodations at Brooks Lodge are simple and in shared quarters (four guests to a cabin, separated by gender or couple) with two bunk beds and private bathroom facilities in each cabin. Solar power is available during daytime hours at Kenai Wilderness Lodge. All of our Ultimate Alaska trips begin in Fairbanks and end in Anchorage.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
This Alaska adventure begins in Fairbanks and ends in Anchorage. Arrive in Fairbanks, Alaska by 4pm on Day 1 of the program as we will have a 6pm orientation followed by a 7pm dinner. You are free to depart Anchorage anytime on the final day. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as we are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
