Land of Katmai
A Wildlife Viewing Holiday to Alaska, USA
Katmai National Park covers almost 4 million acres of wilderness on the Alaska Peninsula, 250 miles southwest of Anchorage. The park is home to the Alaskan brown bear which thrives in the sub-arctic environment.
Brooks Lodge is inside the park and has 16 guest rooms. Accommodation is basic, with bunk style beds and few "trimmings". The main lodge overlooks aquamarine Nanek Lake and serves hearty meals with a bar to relax in as you enjoy the light evenings. Park rangers and naturalist guides lead guests to bear viewing locations at Brooks Falls and in the evening you can enjoy slide shows and lectures. There are mountain bikes, kayaks and canoes for rent for the more energetic guest. This is the most popular viewing spot in Alaska and books up months in advance.
