Katmai Air provided excellent service with our flight to Aniakchak. We landed on Surprise Lake in the caldera of an old volcano. The views were spectacular. Our pilot was very knowledgeable. He led us up a hill where we picked wild blueberries, huckleberries, and raspberries.

The flight was spectacular but we didn't quite make it through the gates due to a low ceiling. Regardless, the flight was amazing overlooking the river leading out of the gates. We saw several beautiful waterfalls and landed on another lake outside the main caldera.

Bears and Fishing abundant. The weather didn't cooperate, but despite the rain and mosquitos we had a wonderful time. The preserve is well layed out and the personnel make sure everyone is safe and that the animals are not traumatized by visitors.
