Northern Lights and Wildlife Photography Tours

Come see us at Stephan Lake Lodge for an amazing week of Northern Lights and Wildlife photography. October in Alaska offers an unparalleled opportunity for Northern Lights viewing. We have longer nights along with mild temperatures in the fall. This offers the opportunity to take photos in the middle of the night without subzero temperatures. You just need to get to Anchorage, and we will take care of the rest.

We will pick you up in Anchorage where we will fly you through the majestic Talkeetna Mountains to our luxury lodge. We offer six well acquainted rooms complete with private baths, coxy linens and tranquility. We have a gourmet chef on hand that will prepare you three meals a day and can accommodate special requests as well as food allergies. We have a cozy common area with a large fireplace and offer WI-FI and DirecTV. We offer sunset cruises on our pontoon boat as well nature hikes through our private 40,000-acre wilderness area. We commonly have Grizzly Bear, Black Bear, Caribou and Moose on property. These majestic animals call our wilderness home. They Grizzly Bear eat the spawning salmon before hibernating and the Caribou winter near the lake. We are home to several dozen different migratory birds including dozens of Trumpeter Swans.

We can accommodate groups of 2-12. This is an amazing opportunity to meet other photography enthusiasts in a private setting. We have multiple offerings so each group can choose a private tour each day. We can also accommodate whole lodge bookings for photography clubs and tour groups. Come see the Alaskan Wilderness in a private, remote setting. Where you can hear the Northern Lights, watch mating birds, and experience bear and caribou in their natural environment. Escape the crowds and experience the opportunity to photograph Alaska’s beauty with just you and Mother Nature.
