A Lot of Hiking

Hiking and Fishing Alaska

The logistics of getting in and out of camp require air-dropping gear and supplies from a floatplane and then hiking into the camp from a nearby lake. You should be physically fit for this adventure. Although there will be great fishing around camp, at times, some of the best fishing can be found as far as a one—to two-mile hike.

Heated WeatherPort Tents
