Four Peaks Glacial Lake pack rafting tours are a guided backpacking and rafting excursion that allows the guests to view and experience other remote and unexplored areas of the coast of Katmai National Park. A Hallo Bay Naturalist Guide will lead you to some of the most beautiful and scenic areas of the Katmai coast. Only those of sound mind and body, and with prior pack rafting and backpacking experience and a passion for adventure should consider these trips.
Our number one priority will always be the safety of our clients and secondly to have no adverse affect on the behavior or the well being of any wildlife in the area while leaving no trace of our presence.
Your trip will be led by one of Hallo Bay’s experienced wilderness guides who are familiar with the local conditions, the weather and the wildlife of the Katmai coast. Our guides are also skilled in wilderness lore, emergency wilderness medical training and evacuation techniques. Additionally your guide will be carrying radio and satellite communication equipment which he will use to maintain regular scheduled communication with Hallo Bay Wilderness Camp as an added measure of safety.
Our Glacier Pack Rafting tour package begins when you board the bush plane in Homer for your flight to Katmai. The enjoyable and scenic flight will be approximately one hour in duration prior to arriving at the coastal jump off point at Four Peaks Glacial Lake. A little time is utilized to familiarize yourselves with your starting point and testing the communication equipment, we will then begin our journey along the lake to our first night’s camp. Our days will be spent pack rafting and hiking along the glacial lake, stopping often to explore, view wildlife and relax. As we raft and trek, we will set up our camp each evening in a safe, comfortable location. Our last morning will have the float plane arriving on the lake where we will take our flight returning us to Homer.

Hallo Bay does provide the pack rafts and pack rafting gear but we do not provide the guests with any camping gear, food, equipment or personal products for the pack rafting treks. These items are the responsibility of the guests to bring, always with the consideration of the weight you will be carrying.
We operate an environmentally friendly eco camp. All products that we use and that the guests use have to have the environmentally friendly label on every product or you will not be able to use it on the coastal trek. You can purchase environmentally friendly shampoos and bath soap products at local health food stores or sporting goods stores in your area or in Homer before you fly out to our camp.
Our advertised prices, specifications and availability are subject to change without notice. We reserve the right to correct typographic, photographic, pricing and or descriptive errors.
By purchasing services from Alaska’s Hallo Bay Wilderness Camps you are agreeing to the terms and conditions which we have set in place governing our operations. If you are not comfortable with these terms we respectfully ask that you do not book with us as these are our company policies set in place for your safety, the safety of other guests, staff and our deep concern for protecting this magnificent wilderness area and the wildlife within it from those who may not realize how very fragile it is and how easily it can be overrun. Our watch is one of concern for all living things and their environment.
