Why Take This Tour?
Explore a wildlife rich slice of Alaska, set in the scenic wilderness settings of Lake Clark National Park, and the Chugach National Forest Wilderness of Prince William Sound. Get off the beaten path and experience unparalleled photographic and wildlife viewing opportunities, while part of a small group. Begin the journey with an exploration of the remote corners of Prince William Sound on a five-day voyage, observing wildlife such as black bear, sea otters, harbor seals, whales, sea lions and puffins, amidst a spectacular blend of mountain, forest, and glacial scenery. Next take a scenic bush flight to one of the most remote and road less national Parks in Alaska; Lake Clark. Stay in a comfortable lodge for 3 days of intimate bear viewing, where you are on the ground with coastal brown bears as they feed, nurse, mate and play in the lush green, flower filled meadows.
