You're going to visit the great Alaskan outdoors. This adventure gives you rare access to the world of the most majestic animals in their own backyard. 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.
Your guide knows all about these awe-inspiring creatures and will share fascinating stories about all the local wildlife and ecosystems.
With a little luck, you'll get to see the bears demonstrate their skills at salmon fishing. Occasionally, they'll even catch dinner in midair with their mouths as salmon jump out of the water. Have your camera ready!
Keeping up with the Kodiaks
The Alaskan brown bear is commonly known as the Kodiak bear. While they may resemble the foreboding grizzly bears, Kodiaks are a subspecies of brown bears that are only found in the Kodiak Archipelago of southwest Alaska. Their hibernation period begins in late October. The pregnant female Kodiaks, known as sows, tend to hibernate before their male counterparts, called boars. They don’t emerge from their deep slumber until April and sometimes as late as June.
