Alaska Grizzly Bear Viewing Tour at Brooks Falls 

Join us for an exciting day tour to Katmai National Park and famous Brooks Falls ! During the bear viewing day tour from Anchorage, you can expect to see many grizzly bears catch salmon. It all happens at Katmai. Katmai National Park is located on the northeast coast of the Alaska Peninsula. Among all its diversity, the park boasts the largest grizzly bear population in Alaska with more than 2,000 protected brown bears. During the peak of the large sockeye salmon run each July, it is not uncommon to see around twenty bears congregate around Brooks Falls, and along the Brooks River, Naknek Lake, and the Brooks Lake shorelines. Many visitors concentrate their activities along Brooks River, where brown bears congregate to feed on sockeye salmon as they pass upstream. Two bear viewing platforms are located right above the falls and one platform is located at Naknek Lake. This is the perfect time to observe the famous Alaska grizzly bear.

Brooks Falls Grizzly Bear Tour

Join the grizzly bear tour at Brooks Falls. Because it is one of the first streams in the region where bright, energetic, and pre-spawned salmon are available to bears, the Brooks River hosts one of the biggest grizzly bear and brown bear concentrations anywhere on earth. The time of year, along with salmon densities and spawning activity dictate when, where, and how the Alaska bear feeds along the river. Located in southwestern Alaska, Brooks Falls is one of the best places in the world for Alaska bear viewing and to observe brown bears. The bears and humans have been peacefully coexisting at Brooks Camp for over 30 years. There are three bear viewing platforms set up for viewing the bears while they fish for salmon at Brooks Fall or in Naknek Lake. However, you commonly run into bears on the trails to the observing platforms and campground. You might even witness a grizzly bear standing. When you join our day trip, there is no need to fear. The bears have learned that they can trust humans in Katmai so they pretty much pay no attention to humans and simply go about their business of non-stop eating. The 3.6 million acre Katmai park has the largest grizzly bear concentration of protected brown bears in the world so you are bound to see them on this grizzly bear tour.

Alaska Bear Viewing at Brooks Lodge

Located next to the world-famous Brooks River in the heart of Katmai National Park is Brooks Lodge. You can use the lodge during the grizzly bear tour. Brooks Lodge, originally conceived as a fishing camp, has been in operation since 1950. Guest accommodations consist of sixteen modern cabins with showers, private toilet facilities, heat, and electricity. The comfortable cabins accommodate two to four people. The rustic main lodge building boasts a spectacular view of aquamarine Naknek Lake. Its large circular fireplace is a popular spot for relaxing evenings or to reminiscing about the day's adventures. There is also a restaurant with hearty Alaskan fare (buffet style), bar, convenience store, guide services, boat rental, and more. It’s not just a grizzly bear tour either. Besides brown bear, Katmai provides a protected home to moose, caribou, red fox, wolf, lynx and beaver.
