Alaska: Grizzly vs Salmon in Katmai

This photography trip to Alaska has one goal: standing eye to eye with the mighty grizzly in action! During this time of year, these formidable bears add fat reserves for winter. They feast on the abundant salmon pawning in the fresh river water. Our destination – Katmai National Park – is so distant, you can only reach it by seaplane. Are you ready for some real adventure?

We leave early on our expedition. After weighing all the material – including the photographers – everything is loaded into the seaplane, and we take off from Homer. An hour later, we land in a deep bay in the middle of Katmai National Park, where we set up camp next to a salmon-rich river. After the safety briefing, we put on our boots and take out our cameras for a first exploration of the area.

You get up early every day to photograph the grizzlies, from dawn till late afternoon. We have lunch in our camp, after which we head out again till dusk.

After one last morning session with the bears, we break down our camp and pack everything. The seaplane brings you back to civilisation to make a backup of your images, load your batteries and enjoy a hot shower. Depending on the flights (not included), you’ll spend the night in Homer or Anchorage before heading home.
