Pack Creek Bear Tour

The Pack Creek Bear Sanctuary is one of Alaska’s most accessible, and yet most wild, bear viewing areas. We walk the same ground as the bears and generations of respectful visitors have preserved the opportunity to see the lives of these bears unfold as though we weren’t there. The Pack Creek Bear Tour is a premium guided and fully-outfitted package. We take just 2-5 people to explore some of the most prime bear country on earth and to observe these amazing animals in their natural surroundings.

Pack Creek Tour highlights:

  • Outstanding opportunities to observe and photograph wild bears;
  • 25-minute float plane flight to Admiralty National Monument, inside the Kootznoowoo Wilderness;
  • five-six hours spent exploring a half mile of beach and a meadow where Pack Creek emerges from the mountains and forest to meet the sea, with a possible one mile interpretive hike on a moderate trail through pristine old growth forest to an observation tower above the creek;
  • maximum of five participants on every tour;
  • guided by Alaskan professional naturalists specializing in bear behavior and temperate rain forest natural history;
  • fully outfitted, with rubber boots, rain gear (if needed), day pack, binoculars, and healthy lunch with snacks;
  • $829/person July 5 – August 25. $789/person outside of peak season (Customary Guide Gratuity not included)
  • Trips May 10 – September 15.
  • No regularly scheduled trips June 10-25. Call for special arrangements.
