BVAN01 Katmai – Brooks Falls Bear Viewing Day Tour from Anchorage


Watching bears in the wild is one of the most fascinating natural spectacles. Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park is a perfect place to see bears. There are almost 2000 brown bears in this area and the chance of seeing them is particularly high in July and September when the bears come to catch salmon on the fish rich river. One salmon after the other the skilled hunters fish from the river and often they only have to open their mouths to catch one of the jumping salmon. A real feast for the bears and a joy to watch. From Anchorage you fly to King Salmon or Kulik and continue by seaplane to Brooks Camp. From the lodge you can reach the spectacular viewing platforms in a few minutes, from where you have a perfect view of Brooks Falls and bears. Please Note: This tour can only be booked in combination with our vacation packages.
