Have you ever wondered exactly what we mean when we talk about "Wilderness Camping?"

Many of Backcountry Journeys' Photography Tours, Safaris & Workshops utilize comfy lodges for accommodations, and those are obviously great!

However, wilderness camping affords us some of the best access to locations not easily reached, which leads to a more exclusive and raw experience in locations most people never get to see - especially in Alaska's bear country!

For our wilderness camping trips in remote Katmai National Park, we are afforded a truly remote experience that puts us in the heart of Bear Country for the entirety of our trip. This is easy for us to say, but, how exactly does it all work? What precisely will this experience look like?

Join BCJ Founder, Russ Nordstrand & Photo Guide, Kenton Krueger, for a Live Webinar Conversation where answers to those question and more will help you to know exactly what a wilderness camping trip will be like and whether or not that sort of adventure is for you.

We will also be announcing an exciting new one-off departure to camp with and photograph Brown Bears.

We'll be taking a group of just seven photographers to a remote & relatively unexplored location in the Katmai Backcountry. Reservations for this special departure open at 11:45am today immediately after the webinar

Join Backcountry Journeys in one of the most pristine, raw & beautiful mountain wilderness areas in the world - absolutely teeming with salmon & thus, BEARS!

No boardwalks. No platforms. No crowds.

As long as you can handle a little 'roughin it' in the woods it will be just our small group of photographers surrounded by seemingly infinite expanses of jaw-dropping wilderness - and more bears than you can count.

This location is truly extraordinary & what's best? Due to it's remote location we'll have it to ourselves - pure solitude in the wilderness....

Dates are August 11th to 15th, 2022.

Our  'Special' Presentation of BCJ Live will take place on Wednesday, May 11th, at 11 a.m. Mountain and will be conversation style, so bring any questions and the guys will have answers!

Register for the webinar by clicking the link below and remember even if you cannot attend by registering a link will arrive in your Inbox so that you can view it when convenient.

  • A Great Expereince!

    What a great experience! The trip was well-organized from start to finish. Great photography locations from deep jungle to beach to river boat to night hikes. The schedule kept us busy but never hectic, and the accommodations were super comfortable. Shout out to our guide Ben - we saw so much wildlife! I'd highly recommend a trip with them.


  • In October I traveled with BCJ to Joshua Tree Natl Park for their night sky photography trip. This was my third trip with BCJ and I just reserved another trip. I keep coming back to this company because of the great experiences I'm having. I love the small groups and excellent guides. 


  • This was my first trip with Backcountry Journeys. It was excellent, and I have since booked two more trips. The itinerary, and the guides were excellent.
