Katmai National Park
Home to the famed Brook Falls where visitors can indulge in some of the world’s best bear-viewing, Katmai National Park is a must for wildlife enthusiasts looking to experience up-close encounters with these impressive creatures. Watch as they wait with open jaws for the abundant salmon which runs through this remote and picture-perfect area of Alaskan woodland.
Visitors can also explore the stark, post-apocalyptic landscape of the Valley of 10,000 Smokes, the remnants of a volcanic eruption in 1912 from the formidable Novarupta Volcano. The volcano now lies dormant but the dramatic scenery is still both haunting and fascinating in equal measure, making for an insightful day-trip.
