Day 1: Fly to the lodge in a float plane at 10:00 AM.
We will establish what each person in your party will be packing and pick out the gear and camp meals you would like while on the camping trip. We will make sure everyone is comfortable with their pack weight and get everything packed and ready for the trip.
Then we will prepare for lunch at the lodge before we take off for two nights out in the wilderness.
Day 2: Choosing the "4-Day Experience" instead of the 3-Day allows for either an extra day exploring away from camp without heavy packs on, or the opportunity to pack up and move camp for different experience on night # 2. The guides make take animal activity, questionable weather or other variables into account before packing up and moving camp.
Everyone on the camping trip is expected to pack supplies such as a sleeping bag, bed roll, water, food and clothes in one of our backpacks. On average each persons pack will weigh approximately 30 - 40 lbs. (13 - 18 kgs) All gear is provided. You only need to bring clothing, and we recommend also bringing your favorite binoculars, camera, and whatever else you think may make your trip more enjoyable.
Day 3: return to the lodge in the afternoon from the camping trip and prepare to eat a delicious dinner, take a nice warm shower and get settled into your cabin.
Day 4: While spending the two nights at the lodge you are free to enjoy more guided day-hiking, spending time out on the lake, or just relaxing at the lodge.
Day 5: Enjoy a hearty lodge breakfast before your return flight back to Talkeetna scheduled for 10:30 AM.
