This is a guided over-night family fish camp adventure. "To really experience Athabascan hospitality and culture, plan on an overnight stay at our tranquil wilderness camp by the Tanana River. Settle in to the relaxing camp atmosphere while sitting by the crackling campfire, or take a guided nature hike in the evening. We offer comfortable camp accommodations and an authentic outdoor experience 'the way Alaskans do it'. Everything's included: tents, gear, fresh-wholesome meals and snacks (featuring Mary's sourdough pancakes and fresh salmon in season). All you need to bring is your appetite for adventure and of course, your camera."
