View them from the comforts of the Lodge or take a guided trip to see bears grazing on the tidal flats or catching fish in the nearby stream. Catch those unique photos of cubs playing tag and eagles in nearby trees or by the beach.
Bear viewing is exceptional at the Alaska Homestead Lodge. We truly feel privileged to watch the bears roam in their natural environment in the most beautiful, pristine area imaginable. We are always amazed by the amount of bears we view in our area. The bears are habituated with humans and are not threatened by our presence; therefore, the bears are comfortable with their normal routine while we observe them from a respectful distance. These majestic bruins are incredible to watch and the sows with cubs are simply adorable and very humorous as they play and rough-house with their siblings or nurse from their mother.
Group sizes range from 2 – 9 people with one guide for a more personal group setting. Many National Parks have numerous guests therefore they are very regulated with structured time frames and precise areas and platforms to view the bears. At the Alaska Homestead Lodge you will enjoy watching the coastal brown bears with a trained guide, who will escort you with an ATV and comfortable trailer behind. Many times you can view the bears right around the lodge or within a three mile radius from the lodge. The best bear viewing opportunities are mid June through mid September.
We offer several bear viewing packages from a 2 night minimum visit to a week long adventure or we can even place you with a photography workshop. Guests arrive in the morning between 9:00 - 9:30am and all departures are at 9:00 - 9:30am.
