This trip has been graded 3, moderate, with a safari rating of 5. The majority of the trip takes place in Katmai National Park, an area of wilderness where there is a high concentration of Coastal Brown bears. A reasonable level of fitness is recommended for hiking on sand, tidal flats, grassy meadows, beach and uneven ground. Most days will be spent away from camp hiking in the surrounding wilderness and so a sense of adventure is required, as much of the walking will be of the cross-country variety and you will often need to cross small streams and walk on tundra. Good boots are a must. Expect to walk at a fairly slow pace so as not to disturb the surrounding wildlife.
All the walking is at moderate or low altitudes and therefore should not cause any altitude related problems, and each day you'll only need to carry the essentials (camera, waterproofs, water etc) in a daybag. In the evenings we return to our eco-friendly base camp, protected by an electric fence.
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 8, plus local leader. Minimum age 18.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Exodus is always looking to improve our current itineraries and to offer something different. With many new trips this year, there is something unique and different to try every year.
Wildlife: Trips may be wholly wildlife focused, or contain an element of wildlife viewing within a less specific itinerary.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
