Polar Bear Viewing 

From as far back as Village Elders can remember, legends are told that when the polar bears arrive, the Eskimo hunters will have good luck and catch a whale. Whaling starts in late September and the polar bears make the 150-mile swim from the ice pack to the mainland around that time. The villagers use the whale meat and blubber for subsistence and share the rest with the bears. We have seen as many as 20 bears at a time in several areas. A few bears stay around some years through the winter but the highest concentrations are in October and November.

Our trips depart from Anchorage and fly via Fairbanks to one of several Inupiat Eskimo Villages located on the shores of the Beaufort Sea, 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Day trips are available Tuesdays, Wednesday, Thursdays, and Saturdays. They depart Anchorage at 6:40 am and return between 8 and 10 pm. Estimated time in polar bear country is 5 to 6 hours. A double-cab 4-wheel drive truck is used for transportation on-site.

Price includes airfare from Anchorage, meals and transportation during the expedition and return airfare to Anchorage the day of the trip.

In the event of weather delays, meals and lodging will be extra. Passengers are encouraged to be flexible and allow extra time with other air connections. Arctic cold weather gear is advised and rental can be arranged with prior notice.

For more information, please call the Concierge Desk at 907-754-2108 or email.
