IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT THE FISHING
Although fly-fishing has always been at the heart of our Alaskan wilderness adventures, we offer a wide array of activities perfectly suited to break up the fishing week, or offer a family member or spouse an alternative to fishing.
Heli-Hiking: In search of a great view and some exercise? Our helicopters can drop you off on the top of the Beluga Mountains, a perfect destination for a day hike.
Day Floats: Take a day to float down the Talachulitna River, or a surrounding river, by raft or portable canoe. Float trips are a very peaceful way to explore the environment and safely sneak up on furry members of Mother Nature. At anytime during the day, pull over to try a great fishing hole, or a swimming hole, or to enjoy a campfire lunch.
Panning for Gold: There’s gold in our mountain ranges! In fact, we get requests for helicopter charters from the local gold mine in our area. Sadly they do not share any trade secrets. We have all the gear if you’re interested in testing your luck.
Visiting Trapper Jim: Midway on the Tal’s first resident lives two bends downriver from Talaheim and is an expert wood craftsman. He carves bowls and vases out of burls which make excellent souvenirs.
Wildlife Adventures: For an additional cost we can fly 150 miles south to visit one of Alaska’s National Parks and famous bear viewing destinations. Or fly 80 miles east through the Alaska Range where sheep and caribou can be seen from the air before picnicking at an abandoned mining camp.
