The trip starts with a scenic flight to King Salmon from Anchorage. Then we will take a bush plane into the famous Brooks Camp and spent a night on the campground. The next day 4x4 bus will take us down the 23 mile long gravel road to the Valley of Ten thousand Smokes. From here our adventure begins. We will hike on the ash flow and cross the river Lethe. The next 7 days we will spend exploring fumaroles, lakes, glaciers and possibly see grizzlies crossing the valley floor.
Depending on the length of trip we will have time to visit Novarupta, Mageik Lakes and ascend Mt. Mageik or Trident Volcano. Other possibilities in the area are a traverse over Katmai Pass from the coast and a visit to the Katmai Caldera with a lake on top which requires some glacier travel and is best done in the early season when the snow bridges are still in place.
