Travel to this part of Alaska is easy!
After booking your flight to Anchorage (ANC) you will need to arrange a flight from Anchorage to King Salmon (AKN). Only 2 airlines fly to King Salmon daily: Alaska Airlines and Pen Air. All guests are requested to be at the King Salmon airport by 9:00 am on the day they are scheduled to start their week at ATAL. This means that you will need to either arrive on the first flight in the morning, or arrive the night before and stay overnight in King Salmon at a local hotel. We have never had a guest miss the charter flight if they choose to come in the night before and stay over in King Salmon. Flights to ATAL start in the morning around 10:00 AM from King Salmon. A friendly local air charter service handles all flights to our lodge. The fee is $300 pp for your roundtrip journey between King Salmon and our Lodge. All their pilots are highly experienced and their aircraft meet the strictest safety regulations. Lean back and have your camera ready for an incredible flight over the Katmai National Park.
On their departure day we strongly encourage our guests schedule a late afternoon flight out of King Salmon to Anchorage in order not to miss your connecting flights. As I’m sure you can imagine, weather can occasionally cause delays in Alaska.
If you have any questions about your travel arrangements, please contact us via email or phone prior to booking a non-refundable ticket(s).
Pen Air - For a small discount with Pen Air just ask for “lodge rates” and say you are staying at Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge. In addition to a discount this will insure that you are not charged a fee if you decide to change your flight with them for whatever reason.
