See the Bears of Alaska

When you live in Alaska, you get used to living with bears. In the summer, it seems like they are everywhere. Walking the bike and running paths. Munching grass on the ski slopes and berries on the hillsides. Wandering along river shores and waiting above waterfalls in hopes of catching a leaping salmon swimming upstream to spawn. But for most visitors, seeing these creatures, especially for the first time, is a magical experience which is highly memorable. Our customized bear viewing itineraries transport you into prime bear habitat, providing exclusive access to private reserves where you can watch, photograph, and learn about Alaska’s brown and black bear populations, alongside professional naturalists who can answer every question you might have.
