Day-by-Day Itinerary


Family Adventure - fishing

Day 1  guided Salmon Fishing

Your Alaska Family Adventure will begin with a pick up at your hotel (3 designated pickup spots) in Anchorage at 7:30 am for the scenic and comfortable trip to Great Alaska Adventure Lodge. After a thorough orientation, you’ll enjoy lunch and meet your guide and head out for the fish.  Depending upon the season you'll powerboat or drift boat the Kenai or Kasilof river.  All trips are based upon species availability- ask your adventure expert for the species available during the time frame you are booking.   Return to lodge for happy hour and dinner. (Check out our "Ultimate Family Adventure" itinerary with BearCamp here)
Family Beach Fishing

Day 2   bald eagle scenic float

Today we'll float through the turquoise clear waters of the upper Kenai River and it's prodigious salmon spawning grounds to see one of nature's most amazing events.  This annual returning salmon brings Bear and Eagle (plus wild Trout!) in numbers to feast on salmon eggs and the carcasses of hundreds of thousands of dying salmon.  The tumbling aquamarine water rushes along rocks and forest through the younger and "Swiss-Alp" inspired Kenai Mountains. Lunch served shore-side by your enthusiastic guides.  Return to the lodge for happy hour and overnight.  

Day 4

Day 3    Kenai Fjords glacier and wildlife Cruising

Today we'll cruise the incomparable  Kenai Fjords National Park! On the way to Seward we'll stretch our legs by walking to the face of a retreating Glacier close enough to almost touch.  Then it's on to Seward to  spend the rest of this day cruising and seeking calving Glaciers, Humpback whales and Orca, charming Sea Otters and endangered Stellar Sea Lions. Return to the lodge in time for happy hour, dinner and evening activities for the energetic kids and relaxation on the deck for the adults. 

Day 4   guided Wilderness Hiking

The Chugach Mountains and the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge are renowned for their range of hiking options.  Our favorite is a gentle hike to a raised viewing platform over a rushing Alaska river, where we'll hope to see Sockeye salmon leaping towards their natal spawning grounds.  For those who still have energy, we may continue on to a spectacular sub-alpine lake for lunch.  After photos, we'll head back to the lodge for dinner.
Homer Tour

Day 5 Hidden Lake Kayaking

Today we'll spend the afternoon on one of our beautiful wilderness lakes, paddling our safe and stable kayaks in a gorgeous setting.  Perfect for beginners and strong paddlers alike, we'll explore the coastline and wildlife of the area and find an island to hop out and spread out the lunch.  A great way to combine a little exercise with a fun activity in a gorgeous area.  Return to lodge in the early afternoon with diner and happy hour to follow.
Beach Fishing at Camp

Day 6 Kenai River Beach Fishing

Today we'll take advantage of the great fishing at the lodge and it's prodigious salmon water to target silver, Sockeye or Pink Salmon, depending upon the time of your trip.  Fly casting lessons and and you'll lean to safely land and release (or keep!) salmon.  We may even grill them up to enjoy while you are fishing!  Spend the morning fishing and the afternoon relaxing before your last day on safari before heading home the following day.
Kid's paddling in Alaska
