The trip to Homer will have many stops, so get ready to spend a long time on this trip! During the summer it can be as long as a 5-hour drive or longer to get to Homer due to the traffic without stops! This trip will be stopping at Beluga Point, Bird Creek, several pullouts for wildlife, Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, Hope Exit pullout, Russian/Kenai River pullout and others along the way to Homer. In Homer there are many landscape opportunities for mountains, volcano’s and wildlife. Ask your photographer guide for further details, as this trip can be as long as 16+ hours.
The weather in Alaska can be interesting at best. We have many microclimates and weather conditions can change rapidly! The weather will not stop our tours, however safety will! Temperatures can range from 50-70°F/10-21C and winds can be from a light breeze, to strong a gust. Rain is not a problem here as we get a lot of it throughout the summer months. The rain typically is a slow drizzle (similar to Seattle).
Most areas are wheelchair accessible with easy short walks on flat ground. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is not completely wheelchair accessible. It is flat ground and easy to walk around. We will be driving from exhibit to exhibit, so you will still be able to see the different animals from the vehicle.
