For many Alaskan travelers, bears are the ultimate highlight. Pair a magnificent sighting with a gorgeous helicopter flightseeing ride and you’ll have an unforgettable experience. On this unique tour from Homer, you’ll take a helicopter ride out into one of Alaska’s gorgeous national parks to witness these spectacular creatures in the wild.
Spend several hours or a full day watching bears in the wild on a quintessential Alaskan adventure with a family-run company. Start with a scenic flight out of Homer over Kachemak Bay and into Katmai or Lake Clark National Park. Once you land, your pilot/guide will take you to an optimal spot to watch and photograph these magnificent creatures in their natural environment, hunting, playing, and relaxing. Spend anywhere from 1.5 to 9 hours on the ground with the bears—it’s an experience you’ll never forget.
A picture-perfect flightseeing trip takes you over Cook Inlet, volcanoes and scenic mountains to a pristine and remote coastline. Land on the beach in a place few people have seen, where your pilot safely guides you for hours of watching brown bears fish, play and splash in the water. No crowds, just bears and the serenity of the wilderness around you.
When you go on a bear-viewing tour out in the wilds of Alaska it’s not unreasonable to want one thing: to see more bears than other people. This small operator, based out of Homer, prides itself on being just that—small—so that you can get both a private charter experience and an intimate look at Alaska's most majestic and often entertaining creatures. With a maximum of just four people per tour, these full-day trips take you to see the bears in remote parts of Katmai and Lake Clark National Parks.
