Day 2

Today begins with a quintessential Alaskan adventure – dogsledding! Your driver will pick you up from your hotel and deliver you to a helipad, where you board your helicopter to the icefields. Waiting for you are a team of huskies, who will pull you across the vast icy landscape. The afternoon promises more adventure with a fly-out fly-fishing excursion to remote lakes and rivers. Accommodations are at the Jorgenson House.

Today you will be met by your driver at your hotel for your transfer to the Juneau International Airport, where you’ll catch a commercial flight to Ketchikan (cost of the flight not included in price), and then a charter seaplane flight to Lodge at Whale Pass. Once you’re settled in, explore one of Southeast Alaska’s finest fishing and adventure lodges. Accommodations are at the Lodge at Whale Pass.

Days 4-6

Enjoy daily fishing excursions around Prince of Wales Island with your captains, venturing out on 29 foot ‘Sports Utility Boats’ complete with heated cabins, bathrooms, and berths to enjoy a nap in between catches. Prince of Wales Island offers numerous rivers, lakes and streams for freshwater and saltwater fishing. You’ll be able to cast a line for Halibut, Silver Salmon, Rockfish, Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout. Accommodations are at the Lodge at Whale Pass.

Day 7

Today is a day-long adventure, cruising to LeConte Glacier where you’ll have the opportunity to paddle among the icebergs. While kayaking among the icebergs and harbor seals, don’t forget to look up at the 3,000-foot rock walls and snow-capped granite mountains that surround the Bay.
