You simply cannot come to Alaska Without the intention of
seeing bears and Katmai is the premier brown bear viewing
area in the world. Brown bears gather where there is food
and Katmai's rivers receive the largest run of sockeye salmon
which both bears and fisherman flock to every year.
Katmai National Park Brooks River is one spot where the
bears naturally congregate to catch and feed on salmon
trying to get over Brooks Falls as they return to their
spawning grounds. Bear viewing here is at its premium with
viewing platforms built along the falls and river to
accommodate bear viewers, amateur and novice
photographers alike all affecting the bears behavior.
But don't stop at Brooks Falls, in the Katmai area there are
endless opportunities for bear viewing in more remote
locations. Fly-out to watch bears clam digging on the tidal
beaches, chewing on sea grasses, or mating in the spring. On
our rafting trip you can a nine foot Brownie swim
across the river in front of you or see bears fishing for salmon
from the bank. In Alaska, bears frequent specific areas at
different times, primarily related to food availability. To plan
your visit to coincide with the best bear viewing times,
