Alaska Bear Viewing Lodges
Bear viewing lodges are located wherever bears fish, forage, or gather. The magnificent creatures may wander right through camp, or you may have to take a short hike (or boat ride) to see them. You can spend as little as 1 night, but we recommend 2 nights or more at your wilderness lodge; if you tire of the bears you can go hiking, canoeing, fishing, or take advantage of other activities.
A typical day of bear viewing includes a short hike to the viewing location, hours of photographing bears, then a return to the lodge for a gourmet home-cooked meal and cozy accommodations.
