It’s thrilling to see coastal brown bears in their natural habitat, especially when you’re not rushed. Fly out of Homer to the Katmai coast for five days of amazing bear viewing with Alaska Bear Adventures. Stay overnight on the Alaska Dawn, a 65-foot expedition trawler, so you can easily get back to the bears each morning.
See the bears of Lake Clark and Katmai National Park on their own turf at this blissfully remote cabin-based eco lodge. This is a glamping experience with incredible views—both of the bears living in their own habitat, and of the natural scenery that you get from your hosts, who also run Homer’s only helicopter-based adventure safari company.
