Alaska's wild landscapes provide healthy habitat for bears. In fact, there are so many bears in Alaska, the odds are good you'll be able to catch a glimpse - especially when the salmon are running! The easiest (and safest) way to view bears in the wild is on a guided tour by small plane or boat that lands you and your expert guides near an isolated camp. Human behavior in these bear-viewing camps is strictly controlled, with the goal of making you part of the scenery and letting the bears go about their business undisturbed. Take a half- or full-day bear-viewing trip, or spend overnight in bear country at a wilderness lodge and go on personalized, guided bear-viewing treks by day. Bear-watching packages typically include lodging, meals, guide fees and local boat, van or plane transport from the starting point.
