      About this Juneau, Alaska tour

      You're going to visit the bears in their own backyard. This adventure gives you rare access to the world of the most majestic animals in the great Alaskan outdoors. Your guide will steer you to spots where you can safely watch brown bears fishing for salmon, digging for clams, jostling playfully with their siblings, or just napping in the sunshine.

      Deep in this vast, remote terrain, you may also see black bears, moose, Sitka black-tailed deer, and wolves. In the surrounding stretches of water you may spot otters or whales. And high above, eagles and other birds perch in the treetops or circle in the wide-open skies. This is true Alaska wilderness. Out here, everything is big. Especially the bears.

      Alaska brown bears are some of the largest in the world, standing up to eight feet tall and weighing in at about 900 pounds for males and 500 pounds for females. Your GoBe guide knows all about these awe-inspiring creatures, and has fascinating stories about all the local wildlife and ecosystems. You'll discover that bears crave the salmon that's abundant here during the spawning season and, while these powerful predators are top of the food chain, berries and grass are also menu favorites.

      With a little luck, you'll get to see the bears demonstrate their skills at salmon fishing. They have to be skilled because they need to eat up to 90 pounds of food a day to pack on the extra pounds they'll need to prepare for months of hibernation. Occasionally, they'll even catch dinner in midair with their mouths as salmon jump out of the water. Let's hope you have your camera ready if that happens.

      A long, deep (and poop-free) sleep

      The bears you see on this tour are very active, but in a few months they'll be curled up and sleeping soundly, very soundly, in their dens. Amazingly, during this months-long period, bears don't eat, drink, or eliminate any waste. They survive entirely by living on stored fat and recycling waste products to conserve fluids. Female bears also give birth to their cubs during hibernation – and, incredibly, may not even wake up when giving birth.
