Day 2: Silver Salmon Creek Lodge, Lake Clark National Park. Depart at 8:30 AM for our 9:00 AM chartered flight to the Silver Salmon Creek Lodge. At Silver Salmon Creek Lodge the landscape, wildlife and outdoor opportunities combine to offer photographers a true sense of Alaskan wilderness. Witness towering volcanic mountains that form the backdrop to tidal marshes, streams and pristine salt-water bays that comprise the coastline. You are taken to the lodge by ATV, shown your room/cabin, given a short orientation about moving around bears, followed by a photography presentation by Quest Leader Adam Jones. After lunch, we will go out on our first Quest to photograph bears chasing salmon.
Days 3 - 5: Each day will include guided activities in the early morning and afternoon to photograph the bears against dramatic landscapes as well as other wildlife in the Lake Clark National Park area, including puffins and other birdlife. Sea Kayaking and Fishing are optional activities. All meals are included and we can arrange a selection of wine and beers to share during the stay. Enjoying some time around the campfire after dinner is a must! At night you may choose to stay up late to view and photographing the Aurora Borealis.
On one of the days we will take a boat trip to photograph puffins at a nearby rookery. Adam will accompany you during all guided wildlife viewing activities, and will be available to offer camera tips, photographic advice and general assistance in both group and one-on-one sessions throughout the photography tour.
Each day we return to our lodge for lunch and some free time to download and edit images. We are back in the field for late afternoon and/or evening photo sessions. A great dinner awaits our return to the lodge each evening.
