Base Camp

Camping in Alaska does not have to be a high adrenaline adventure. A base camp trips allow you to settle into this wilderness landscape. Enjoy bird watching, wilderness photography, or witness the incredible caribou migrations. Alaska wildlife photography and bird watching tours aren’t just for professional photographers, Arctic Wild base camp trips are also great for family wilderness vacations or anyone wanting to experience true wilderness. In addition to our scheduled trips we lead a wide variety of base camp trips every year, activities can range from dog-sledding, to wildlife viewing, to hiking or fishing. A base camp allows you lots of time to devote to your passion.

What to Expect on a Camping Adventure

We plan our base camp tours around wildlife migrations and activities. Our base camp trips offer unparalleled opportunities for wildlife photographers and naturalists to spend time with the arctic’s fascinating animals.

 

Your Arctic Wild guide will set up a comfortable camp with abundant, good food and drink and lead daily hiking trips, offer suggestions and insight, or just let you relax in peace. Alaska bird watching can’t be beat with seabirds and terrestrial birds (depending on location) including Asian migrants rarely seen in North America.

The Brooks Range and the untamed Alaska wilderness is your home for the week, enjoy!

Preparing for a Base Camp Trip.

Everyone from young children to octogenarians will enjoy our base camp trips, and no physical training is needed. We are happy to advise on specialized equipment needed for wilderness photography in the arctic. Our years of Alaska bird watching experience will help you prepare or decide which trip is offers the best arctic birding opportunities for your interests. A reading list can be provided for each trip tailored to your interest whether general natural history, wildlife photography, arctic bird watching, or northern cultures.

The great food throughout the trip shouldn’t have been a surprise, but it was a delight. As I review the meals, it sounds more like an immobile glamping excursion than an Arctic expedition — French toast and pancakes (with maple syrup!) and bacon and oatmeal and Mexican egg scramble, hummus and couscous and cheese and eggplant and jerky and smoked oysters and nuts and chocolate, Mexican feasts of pork quesadillas and enchiladas and a weenie roast and fusilli with salmon al fredo (with sun-dried tomatoes and rosemary) and Thai chicken stew and the Thanksgiving feast (I mean, really, turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes in the wilderness?)

Reservation Request ASK A QUESTION "The wilderness was spectacular, the leadership perfect." "I am just finishing my tenth trip with you guys. As always, the trip was more than I expected and I had a great time. See you next year!" "Of all outfitters with whom we have worked (and that is quite a number), you were by far the most organized and responsive." "That feeling of wide open wonder, the possibilities for nearly limitless wandering, and the image of those proud caribou...that will stay with me a long time" "Our guide was an encyclopedia on legs. He was always willing and ready to teach, to talk, to listen, to do another hike, or to lie low in camp if we were beat. He truly gave us the trip we wanted!" Eileen - Canning River
