Bear Viewing in Soldotna, Alaska

Alaska Bears are incredibly common in the areas we frequent. From our local salmon fishing streams to the shores of many lakes, we deliver you to some outstanding locations to observe these mighty bruins.

Photographers and spectators alike return year after year to gaze at these giants of the wilderness. Most options involve a flight across the Cook Inlet and a view of the majestic Alaska Range including active volcanoes Mt. Redoubt, Mt. Spur and Mt. Iliamna. Viewing bears with a professional guide, from the safety of the comfortable boats or otherwise kept safe by knowledgeable/experienced guides, allows for close up and personal bear viewing. Enjoy a fresh grilled salmon snack especially for you and then a grand scenic flight over a glacier on your return flight. These world renowned locations provide the most affordable Alaska bear viewing trips. Destinations include Wolverine Creek and Crescent Lake.

Wolverine Creek Bear Viewing

A unique fishing and bear viewing trip. The trip starts with a 30 minute flight across Cook Inlet to the entrance of Lake Clark National Park and involves fishing at the world renowned Wolverine Creek.  The fishing area is located where a small stream flows into a large lake (Big River Lakes).  The water is usually very clear and the fish can be seen in large schools close to shore.  Ordinarily, you will experience an action filled day of sockeye salmon or silver salmon fishing and up close bear viewing.
