Very difficult hike for the mature crowd whose members are not familiar with uphill ventures. A serpentine 1.25 hour bus ride traversing the river 3 times, leads one to the Ranger station. Begin the downward path, easily marked, tends to leave your knees slightly achy...More
Took the tour while staying at Brooks Lodge. An absolutely amazing view of the largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century (30x greater than Mt. St. Helens). The tour is a one hour ride along a truly single lane road through the wilderness and fording...More
Although the valley no longer smokes it's still an amazing spot. Seeing the layers of ash that fell and hardened as a result of the Novarupta Volcano in 1912 was incredible. We got to the Griggs Visitor Center via the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes...More

This day tour was a great experience - it gets you away from the day crowds at Brooks Camp, and a ranger provides even more interesting information about Katmai NP on the bus ride, during catered lunch, and the (moderately strenuous) hike down to the...More
