Our SAFARI camp offers a lot more than just world-class remote Alaska fly fishing – this region of the Alaska Peninsula is one of the most beautiful and pristine places left on earth, and we sincerely believe that there’s a lot more to do than just fish out here.
Both anglers and non-anglers will find that you could literally spend the entire week out here and never pick up a fly rod… Of course you can fish until you arm falls off, too!
Realistically, it’s impossible to “see and do everything” in one week… ask any of our guests and they’ll tell you this is just yet another reason why you’ll want to come back!
We hope you have as much fun with our “Other Activities” as we do…
In this region of the Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge, you may see some or all of the following:
On a daily basis:
- Coastal brown bears
- Bald eagles
- Red fox
- River otter
- Arctic ground squirrels
- Various song and sea birds
- Sea lions
- Sea otters
We have many magnificent bear sightings throughout the season (check out our Alaska bear viewing video), and to ensure guest safety and comfort, we give a thorough bear safety briefing about how to conduct oneself around camp and on the water. Always be respectful and cautious, but remember the bears are there to eat fish, not you!
In case you can’t lift you arm anymore, or are just looking for a change of pace, guests may opt for an easy to moderate day hike to explore some of nature’s finest offerings. Beach combing may produce a whale vertebrae, unusually shaped driftwood, or a unique rock or shell. Other areas of the coastline offer superbly sculptured rock formations and tide pools where you may see mussel and barnacle beds, or uncover a whole world of other intra-tidal life. Hikes to gorgeous waterfalls will pass through lush plant growth where you may see colorful wildflowers, edible berries ready for harvest, or perhaps a unique leaf fossil.
There is an overwhelming sense of satisfaction, beauty and humility after climbing to a higher vantage point to fully appreciate this awesome landscape. For the physically fit, there exist an unlimited number of unexplored ridgelines and summits to conquer.
Our guides joke that they could spend an entire summer out here without rod in hand (yeah, right!), but instead would arm themselves with camera and lots of film and memory cards. For the amateur or the professional, there exist infinite angles and vantage points to capture the dramatic surroundings and wildlife. Let us take you on an Alaska photo tour that is sure to capture some cover-worthy photos.
The helicopter is the absolute best way to enjoy a bird’s eye view of this IMAX worthy landscape and catch a close up glimpse of some of the world’s most breathtaking waterfalls, unique geological formations and glaciers. Instead of helicopter fly-out fishing, guests may opt for a flight seeing tour up one of our magnificent valleys, a beach combing excursion along a remote shoreline, or an ocean side picnic on a deserted island.
