Thousands of eagles assemble along the Chilkat River for the last salmon run of the season, and there is no finer location for both eagle behavior and wild scenery.

NORTHERN LIGHTS PHOTO TOUR
March 2-8, 2020

Central Alaska continues to be one of the best locations for northern lights, for the skies tend to be clear during the best aurora viewing time. Just as importantly, we’ll stay at backcountry lodges, and the aurora photography is only steps from your door. It’s hard to have a Northern Lights photo tour be more comfortable or convenient.
