Your wilderness tour includes an incredible scenic flight from Anchorage to Wildman Wilderness Lodge. You will travel southwest by comfortable twin engine aircraft through Lake Clark and Katmai National Parks, along the volcano-studded Alaska Peninsula Wildlife Refuge, viewing wildlife and exploring the wonders of the remote Alaska Peninsula. Photograph glaciers, volcanoes and miles of untouched wilderness along the way, then down the Bering Sea coastline, all before reaching Wildman Wilderness Lodge. Here in Alaska;s true wilderness Brown Bear, Pacific Walrus and Wolves are our closest neighbors, while moose, caribou, fox and many more wild species flourish all around us and the bird species are too numerous to count. Guided Photo Safaris to view and photograph Alaska’s most wild creatures in their natural habitat. Like no where else on the planet, the Alaska Peninsula is truly, in the Wild! Join the experienced Alaska Bush Pilots and Wilderness Guides at Wildman Wilderness Lodge for a wildlife viewing experience that you will never forget, and return to the warmth and comfort of our deluxe wilderness lodge each evening. Nowhere else in Alaska will you find real uninhabited wild animals roaming as they did a century ago. This is not a canned tourist attraction, this is an EXCLUSIVE Alaska Wildlife Tour and Photo Safari, guided by real Alaskans on the remote Alaska Peninsula. If you want to see more bears than people, don’t go to a National Park! Visit Wildman Wilderness Lodge, where the bears never see people, and neither will you.
