Valley Of Eagles

Over 3,000 eagles gather along a four-mile stretch of the Chilkat River north of Haines, Alaska each fall to feed on a late run of salmon. This wildlife spectacle is the largest gathering of eagles in the world. Warm water upwellings in the river keep this stretch of the Chilkat River ice-free providing access to the fish when food supplies are exhausted elsewhere. Eagles flock from as far away as Washington State for the abundant feast. Starting in late October, eagles by the hundreds can be seen along the sand bars and in cottonwood trees in the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve.

Itinerary


Day 1 - Upon arrival in Juneau, you will be transported via Travelodge’s free shuttle to your nearby lodging facility. Early arrivals will

have time for local sight-seeing prior to our scheduled 5:00 p.m. dinner.

Day 2 - Today, you will make the four-and-one-half-hour journey from Juneau to Haines by ferry through Alaska’s fabled and scenic Inside Passage.

Days 3-8 - Each day will find your viewfinders filled with images of bald eagles -- close-ups, environmental portraits, and flights shots to name just a few. For years I’ve advised others that if they want to photograph a subject that sells, there are three species worth considering: eagles, eagles and eagles. This week will be your opportunity to do just that. Since maximum light and shooting conditions exists between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., there will be ample opportunity for everyone to explore the many local attractions that Haines has to offer. Weather permitting, you will spend an entire day exploring the landscape between Haines and British Columbia.

Day 9 - Today, you’ll begin your journey back to reality as you board the ferry to Juneau.

Day 10 - All good things must come to an end including this once-in-a-lifetime Alaskan adventure. Following an early breakfast, you will be transported to the airport you will be whisked away to that place called civilization.
