Alaska Fly Fishing Tent Camp

Daily hikes are required on this fly fishing adventure.

Fitness

Your level of fitness is so important we dedicated an entire page to it.

This is a physical week requiring 15 to 100+ minute hikes across uneven and spongy tundra. There is almost no elevation change, but walking on tundra can be like walking through soft sand or a field of thick, wet sponges… 1 tundra mile equals 2 or 3 pavement miles.

Guests must be in excellent cardiovascular shape to reach the upper stretches (45+ min. hike) of our home river. You should be able to walk 5+ flights of stairs without being winded.

Please do not show up at camp in poor physical condition – it could make a long and possibly unenjoyable week. And please do not count frequent golfing or walking around the block as proper training for this adventure, or the tundra will definitely humble you!

Any questions? Please contact us.

NOTE: We suggest 250 pounds as a maximum guest weight limit on this adventure.
