Any visit to Katmai National Park is special–but it’s really nice when you can take advantage of a “free night” offer with Explore Tours. When you travel between now and June 20 or between Aug. 10-25, 2012, you can get a free night when booked in conjunction with an air/lodging package.
Nestled on the shores of the Brooks River, the lodge is perfect for accessing the fly-fish/catch-and-release waters. Also, nearby Brooks Falls is the perfect spot to watch for bears in their quest to load up on red salmon! NOTE: the “free night” offers are during the slower, “off peak” viewing dates.
Be sure and set aside one day for a trip to the Valley of the 10,000 Smokes. Start in the morning at Brooks Camp, then ride their special bus up the 37-mile road to the overlook of the valley. You’ll see the pumice- and ash-covered valley: the result of the 1912 eruption of Novarupta.
Hike down to the valley floor and see how the Ukak River carves a canyon through the soft rock. INCREDIBLE!! Right: we hiked down with the ranger who accompanied our trip.
2012 SPECIAL (1 NIGHT FREE LODGING) PACKAGES: Available June 1 through June 20 & August 10 through August 25

ANOTHER SPECIAL: 9-day Grand Journey. This nine-day itinerary includes overnight excursions into Kenai Fjords National Park and remote lodge stays (above, the Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge from the air)! Then, travelers can check out Denali National Park from several angles: from the south at Talkeetna or from the north at Kantishna. We recommend the optional flightseeing tours for great photos!! To get to Kantishna, you ride the entire length of the park road–a great wildlife-viewing opportunity. You’ll love the Kantishna area…literally at the base of Mt. McKinley. LEARN MORE.
