Traveling to Brooks
Your travel to Brooks begins with an approximately one hour and fifteen minute flight from Anchorage to King Salmon, Alaska.
Upon arrival to King Salmon, you will be met by a member of our Katmai Air team who will shuttle you to our Katmai Air station located on the Naknek River. Here you will board a Katmai Air float plane for your scenic 20-minute flight to Brooks Lodge.
When You Arrive
Upon arrival, you will be met by a member of the Brooks Lodge staff to assist you off of the plane and direct you to a brief bear orientation administered by a National Park ranger (required for all visitors to Brooks).
During “Bear School,” you will be provided with a map of the area and will learn how to safely conduct yourself while exploring in bear country. Friendly park rangers are also available on-site to answer all of your questions about this incredible park as well.
A hot buffet-style lunch is available each day in the Brooks Lodge dining area and can be purchased on-site. Snacks, candy, and other smaller on-the-go options are also available for purchase at the Brooks Lodge gift shop.
