LAKE TOURING DESCRIPTION:  Begin your Alaska wilderness Expedition by flying commercial airliner from Anchorage to the southwestern fishing town of King Salmon. King Salmon is the jumping off point en-route to Becharof Lake and the Becharof National Wildlife Refuge, located in the northeastern part of the Alaska Peninsula near Katmai National Park and Preserve. Becharof Lake is Alaska's second largest lake, thirty-seven miles long and fifteen miles wide. The Becharof region is one of the largest (1.2 million acres!!!), and one of the most recent entries into the National Wildlife Refuge System (established in 1980).

Within Becharof's National Wildlife Refuge seldom explored boundaries lay a vast mixture of shoreline, landscape and wildlife. The terrain features include volcanic peaks and vents, rolling tundra hills and flats, grass wetlands and ponds, even seaside cliffs and strange geologic formations. The ever shifting character of the countryside provides excellent habitat diversity. Millions of birds! Sea birds and waterfowl stage here during mass migration periods before traveling in spring further north to nesting grounds and their return stopover come the onset of the late Fall season. Hawks and eagles find summer prey. Shorebirds and Willow Ptarmigan thrive along the lake's extensive coastline. Over thirty species of land mammals live here including hundreds of Alaska Brown Bear, Moose, Caribou, Red Fox, Wolf, and Wolverine. Red Salmon swarm by the millions upon millions into Becharof Lake to spawn.

Becharof Lake is named for the Russian naval navigator that was stationed on nearby Kodiak Island in 1788. The Pacific coast of Becharof was important to Russian and subsequent European as well as American fur traders seeking Sea Otters, Northern Fur Seals, Walruses, Steller's Sea Lions and Harbor Seals. Though temporary trading settlements of the early commercial fur trade were set up in the vicinity along the ocean coast for the majority of fur bearing expeditions; there is little evidence that the fur seekers traveled inland with much interest or any extended purpose. The only thing unmistakably apparent is that Becharof Lake is nearly the same wild place in today's world that it was long before the early explorers gave it a name.
