Day 4
Redoubt Bay | Bear Country

Approximately 90% of Alaska is not served by roads, which is why aviation plays such an important role in everyday life. Fly southwest to Redoubt Bay Lodge, the site of some incredible bear viewing. Embark by boat through “bear country,” looking for black and brown bears, and watching for other wildlife along the way. Later, continue to your accommodations in a rustic-modern lodge that overlooks Denali National Park and North America’s tallest peak, Denali (formerly Mount McKinley).

Today, explore the quaint downtown of Talkeetna. Visit the family-run Kahiltna Birchworks, where learning about birch sap is rewarded with tastings of birch-made candy and ice cream. Then, head out on a privately guided angling experience, trying your hand at fishing on local rivers teeming with salmon, trout and char, and lined with towering fir trees. This evening, enjoy time together at your wilderness lodge, relaxing on the deck with views of endless mountain scenery or inside with board games by a giant river rock fireplace.
