Product Story

Wylder has teamed up with the Salmon Sisters for an incredible journey into the untamed beauty near Homer, Alaska and its surrounding ecosystem! Join us on a 5 day, 4 night ecology-based adventure guided by the Wylder Co-Founders and the Salmon Sisters. This trip is all about exploration of the sea and surrounding landscape of Kachemak Bay, Alaska. Participants will enjoy a wilderness lodge experience which includes gourmet meals, optional daily yoga, hiking, nature journaling, learning about salmon fishing, and taking a private fishing charter. You will have one day of professional wilderness guide service with your choice of a private boat ride and hike to Grewingk Glacier Lake, sea kayaking around the Lodge, or guided casual beach fishing for salmon. You will experience a hands-on immersion into the ecology of Kachemak Bay. 

Our basecamp is a pristine wilderness lodge in Kachemak Bay with spectacular mountain, glacier, and sea views, private cabins, wood-fired sauna, outdoor hot tub, and a solarium with panoramic views of the wilderness.

FLIGHTS

We recommend Alaska Airlines flights to Anchorage, AK, and from Anchorage, there is a short flight on Ravn Air from Anchorage to Homer. This is the easiest and fastest way to get to Homer. There are also buses from Anchorage to Homer, but they take 4-6 hours. 

THE FINE PRINT

Trip does not include airfare to and from Homer, Alaska. The Lodge is located on the shores of China Poot Bay, a half hour boat ride across Kachemak Bay from Homer. Guests meet Lodge staff the afternoon of Monday September 3 at the Boat House Pavilion by Ramp #2 of the Homer Boat Harbor near the end of the Homer Spit. Our trip officially ends when we return to the Homer Port & Harbor on Friday, Sept. 7th; the afternoon in Homer is optional for trip participants.
