11 Days / 12 Nights   |   29 June - 9 July 2019

We're expanding our ever-popular 5-day ALASKAN GRIZZLY BEAR PHOTO WORKSHOP from the sedge fields on the shores of Lake Clark National Park to include three full days photographing fishing bears at Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park and three full days on the Kenai Peninsula photographing marine wildlife and eagles in Seward and Homer.  It doesn't get better than this!

Ranked #1 of 4 Specialty Lodges in Lake Clark National Park and Reserve  -  TRIP ADVISOR

Silver Salmon Creek Lodge is a full service, family-run wilderness lodge located on the western shores of Alaska's Cook Inlet, the coastal boundary of Lake Clark National Park and Reserve.  Lodge access is by small charter plane and is an hour southwest of Anchorage or a 30 minute flight southwest of Soldotna.  

Despite being remote, the lodge combines comfort and charm with the most modern amenities. The original lodge is comprised of four guest rooms with en suite, a double lounge room for enjoying the company of fellow guests or a good book, a spacious second-story kitchen/dining room featuring scrumptious family-style meals and, adjoining the dining room, a large deck offering panoramic views of Cook Inlet and one of the bear-viewing fields.  It is not unusual to enjoy your meals while watching bears in the distant sedge fields or below in the yard of the lodge itself. Keep your camera handy! 

In addition to the lodge, there are six guest cabins containing 1-3 spacious bedrooms with a combination of queen and twin beds, full baths, a sitting area and a private deck with views of Cook inlet and the tidal flats.

There is also a two-story, three bedroom, two bathroom annex with two full kitchens accommodating families and groups traveling together.

Last year a large, but cozy, media centre was added where photo groups can meet for daily critiques and informal instruction on wet days. For the most part, however, we will be outside shooting and instruction will be individualized in-field.
