Bear & Wildlife Viewing

Viewing bear in their natural environment is a quintessential Alaska experience. These magnificent animals are captivating to watch, and the best way to ensure a quality viewing experience is to fly-in with a top outfitter. Bear follow their food source. This means that bear viewing times can change from year to year, following the salmon runs. The available times for bear viewing trips range from June to mid-September, with a peak season in July and August. We recommend planning ahead for bear viewing trips as these are popular and the fly-in nature of the trips may require additional travel logistics and time.

All tours listed below can be booked through Alyeska's Concierge Desk: 907-754-2108. The Concierge Desk is located next to the Front Desk at The Hotel Alyeska.
