Bear and Wilderness Viewing via Floatplane
Step into the wilds of Southeast Alaska for an astonishing brown bear and wildlife viewing adventure. Your exploration begins with a floatplane flight transporting you on a breathtaking scenic flight from Juneau, providing unique access to brown bear territory.
Escorted by an expert local guide, you'll step off the plane and into an unforgettable adventure. Your guide will share his/her knowledge of brown bears, and the wildlife and fascinating natural history of the area. Photographers and nature enthusiasts will marvel at this opportunity to discover the unexpected once-in-a-lifetime experience that allows a rare look into the world of one of the grand and majestic animals of the great Alaskan wilderness.
Tides and foraging habits influence where the bears can be found and our guides are well experienced in finding the bears preferred locations. Shoreline digging for shellfish, foraging for berries or grazing on meadowland grasses – all are on the brown bear menu.
Eagles, Sitka deer, wolves and other wildlife may also be seen on your trip!
