Photographers, animal watchers and nature lovers will all appreciate the solitude and excitement of one of Alaska’s most famous events - the Brown Bear of Lake Clark National Park. One, two and three day stays are included in most Great Alaska Adventure Safaris and can be arranged on separate itineraries.

So unique is this intimate location that Disney used Alaska BearCamp as a primary base camp for much of the 2012 and nearly all of 2013 to film the new movie “Bears”. Nowhere in Alaska is the bear viewing as consistently productive as our camp, due to the season - long availability of food. In the Spring, sedge grass is waiting for the bears as they emerge from their dens in (perfect feed for the young cubs as they learn the ropes of wilderness life!) and then, of course the returning salmon of July and August allow the bears to gorge upon the protein so critical to putting on fat to hold them over the long winter. Our one of a kind camp, with it's private, camouflaged viewing platforms allow you to safely view and truly experience North America's Alpha Carnivore.

Our overnight Alaska Bear Viewing Trips begin with a van pickup in Anchorage followed by a 135 mile transfer to our main lodge over the spectacular Seward and Sterling highways. After lunch at our riverside main lodge, you'll transfer 12 miles to the Soldotna airport for a 50 minute flight to our award winning fly in Bear Viewing camp, Following a thorough orientation you'll spend the rest of the day viewing Brown Bears and exploring the area around the camp, followed by dinner and overnight in custom Weather Port Tent/cabins. After breakfast, there's more quality time spent watching and photographing the great bears and other wildlife, followed by a flight back to Soldotna some time after 2:00 (depending upon tides, weather and variety of other factors). Those who have chosen round trip transfers from Anchorage will return to Anchorage in the late afternoon, arriving approximately between 7:30 and 9:30 pm at your hotel. Those with rental cars will be on their own upon arrival to Soldotna. Due to the transient nature of these great animals, overnight experiences are recommended, although we do offer single day experiences in the month of June and July.

Day 01 - You’ll be met at 7:30AM at the Millennium Hotel by our private van for the scenic 2 ½ hour trip to Great Alaska.  (Please note- the ”no transfer” version begins at noon at our riverside main lodge on the Kenai river)  Lunch and orientation is followed by  a flight to our incredible bear viewing camp in Lake Clark. Following your arrival at camp and a thorough orientation at the camp, you’ll spend the afternoon viewing the amazing coastal Alaskan Brown Bears at the very base of - Mt. Illiamna, one of Alaska’s most beautiful mountains.  You’ll overnight in an electrified fence perimeter of high-tech Weather-Port tent cabins with heater, toilet, writing desk,  and twin beds.

Day 02 - A final day with the bears….you and your guides will perhaps choose another viewing location, walk the beach, journal or pace, and spend the morning in true wilderness beauty with the royalty of Alaskan wildlife.  After lunch it’s back to the planes for the trip to our riverside main lodge.  You’ll have a few hours there to sort your gear and ready for the van trip back to Anchorage. Arrive in Anchorage in the evening (some may choose the no transfers option, and will join up with their car upon return to the main lodge in the early afternoon. Tour extensions are available.

Day Trips: Our one day bear viewing experiences, with or without transfers from Anchorage depart from Anchorage at 7:45 am. A lunch is provided at the lodge, then a quick transfer to the Soldotna airfield for the 50 minute flight to Bear Camp. Day trips will spend approximately 1½ hours on the ground viewing the mighty bruins before flying back to Soldotna , then shuttling back to the main lodge. After a little down time to stretch your legs and view your pictures, you'll depart by van for Anchorage, arriving approximately 7:30 to 9:00, depending upon a variety of factors. Clients who opt to drive in will meet at our main lodge at 11:00am for check-in and instructions. Secure Vehicle parking is available for bear camp clients. (Sorry, RV parking overnights or camping are not available at Great Alaska Adventure Lodge.) Like single day sport fishing adventures, a variety of factors contribute to make every day unique and unlike any other...and because of the bears transient nature, we highly recommend overnight experiences for all of our bear viewing guests. That being said, however the June 01 - July 30th time frame generally produces consistent enough viewing that day trips are productive.
