See The Bears at Crescent Lake
$595/PERSON + TAXES/FEES | JULY 15 - SEPTEMBER 30, 2022
One of our premier bear viewing fly-in experiences is located in the wild and scenic Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. This rugged yet beautiful area comprises sleeping active volcanoes, ice fields and glaciers, and an abundance of wildlife with lakes and streams that are teeming with trout and salmon. The huge runs of sockeye and silver salmon migrate upstream to Crescent Lake and attract a very high concentration of brown bears to this area. This is where your adventure begins.
A short 40 minute flight from our seaplane base in Soldotna will fly you past Mount Redoubt, whose spectacular eruption entertained Alaskans and viewers across the world in 2009. While here, you'll have the possibility of seeing cubs, young adult bears and a number of big bruins whose presence commands immediate respect from all other bears. These bears are drawn to the lake shore where thousands of salmon are spawning in the shallows. And as spawned salmon die and drift back into the river outlet, more bears will travel the riverbank in search of an easy meal.
Lake Clark itself is a park that spans 4-million acres and is home to a veritable wealth of flora and fauna. In addition to the fish and bear populations, you may also catch a glimpse of moose, caribou, Dall Sheep, and even wolves. Schedule your trip today and prepare for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the Alaskan wilderness.
