RIVER TRIP DESCRIPTION:  Begin your trip by flying commercial Jet airliner or twin engine commuter plane from Anchorage to the southwestern fishing town of King Salmon. King Salmon is the jumping off point for Brown Bear viewing, floating and trekking trips into Katmai country. It is in bush community hub of King Salmon that your adventure awaits.
We load up your gear and board floatplanes docked on the banks of the Naknek River. Shortly after take off, you are flying across barren ground tundra and over giant lakes en route to Kukaklek Lake. After about an hour's flight, a sea-size, brilliant blue gem appears on the horizon. Buzzing in low on landing approach, there are often wandering Brown Bears all around the lakes shoreline, flocks of Sandhill Crane and waterfowl in surrounding wetlands, a few browsing Caribou feeding on tundra vegetation, often a glimpse of a Red Fox, and frenzied schools of spawning Sockeye Red Salmon swarming beneath the fast moving shadows of the airplane's floats. Soon thereafter you'll be setting down on Kukaklek Lake, and  pulling up to the beach. While keeping a watchful eye on the Bears, you'll say a farewell for the duration of your Float Trip adventure after a hasty unload with a few last minute equipment checks

Kukaklek Lake's basin is mostly tundra covered with dwarf-like vegetation and relatively few trees.  The surrounding landscape of Katmai's rugged volcanoes tower on the horizon. It is from Kukaklek Lake that the Alagnak River flows west-southwest 74 miles to its confluence with the Kvichak River.

The Alagnak Wild and Scenic Waterway is a premier wilderness river destination offering diverse scenery, wildlife, fishing, and fun whitewater. The river runs through sub arctic tundra, taiga, and grasslands. It is typical to find Brown Bears fishing or feeding on blueberries, a few nomadic Caribou roaming, and Moose blending in motionless along the riverbanks. If you are lucky to be in the right places at the right times, other animals like fox, wolf, river otter, beaver, eagles, ptarmigan, and waterfowl will often materialize throughout the trip. Fishing is outstanding for nine species of sport fish including Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Grayling, and seasonal runs of Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Chum, Pink Salmon, and Dolly Varden Char.

The Alagnak River is one of southwestern Alaska's most famous sport fisheries and best Brown Bear viewing opportunities. The river itself can be a little challenging, yet not too demanding. Slalom turning moves here and there to avoid closely spaced rocks or boulder gardens, a few deeper cuts through incised canyons, several shorter duration rapids, a brief series of exciting whirlpools, and swimming bears with just their heads sticking up are just some of the wild features to expect that make this river a great Alaska adventure float trip experience.
