August 7th 16th, 2014 : The coast of Katmai National Park may be the best place in the world to view and photograph grizzly bears. The dates that have been reserved for us on the Coastal Explorer are August 9th to 15th. These dates have been chosen as a great time to view the bears as they fish for salmon. There will be interactions between the bears as they vie for their favorite fishing spots. Moms with cubs will be taking advantage of the salmon run in order to build up reserves for the winter. And there are always bald eagles. In addition, there commonly are sea lions, otters, puffins and oyster catchers in the area. We will also have two days to explore and photograph Kodiak island, Fort Abercrombie and the historic town site.

August 31-Sept 7 2014, 8 day 7/night
Denali offers a world-class setting for photography enthusiasts. From beginner to professional, photography is one way to capture the beauty and immensity of this magnificent place.
Autumn in Denali offers the chance to photograph Alaska's greatest park cloaked as comparatively few see it. During any season, the park offers some of the most striking vistas found in Alaska, but at no other time is the vast tundra more colorful than in early fall. The air is crisp and the tundra flashes spectacularly with red and gold. Snow dusts the high ridge-lines and animals scurry about accumulating last-minute calories for winter.
By September, most mammals have put on their heaviest and most photogenic coats in preparation for the coming winter. Moose and caribou have lost their antler velvet and their mottled midsummer pelage and many animals are moving down from the high country.
Come join us deep within Denali National Park for a more intimate experience with this beautiful landscape. We have selected a remote lodge, located at the end of the 92-mile restricted-access park road in Kantishna, offers a complete Denali Park vacation experience and surprising comfort.
Winding through the Alaska Range, deep into the heart of Denali National Park, the Park Road offers opportunities to see Denali's famed wildlife: grizzlies, caribou, moose, Dall sheep, wolves, foxes, eagles, and more.
In autumn the mountain tends to be less frequently eclipsed by clouds, and stunning images can be made featuring it in sweeping fall-colored landscapes or reflected in lakes and tundra ponds.
Daily field sessions
Breakfast, Light lunch or packed lunch when on the road and a hearty but healthy dinner
Professional photo guide
