We know that the ultimate goal when in Alaska is spotting a bear in the wild. Lucky for you, your guide studies the habits of bears closely and knows the right places to look. The best months for bear sightings are June, July, and August.
In June, we will look to grassy fields and tidal flats. It's mating season for bears and males are eager to show off. If you are lucky, maybe you will see two males fighting to prove their dominance to potential suitors.
In July, salmon migration is underway. Heading inland from the ocean, Pacific salmon flood Alaskan streams. We'll look for bears feeding along the coast.
By August, the salmon have made it further inland, up the rivers to shallow streams. Bears love chasing salmon and we'll do our best to spot them in action.
This is primarily a van-based tour, but we will occasionally get out and explore. This allows us to cover more ground, which will make our chances of seeing wildlife that much greater!
We'll travel to hidden and undiscovered places that the cruise tours do not go to. Your guide boasts "no two tours are alike," which is why we love this tour so much! It's possible to see other wildlife too, like otters, beavers, coastal brown bears, and more!
And flora fans, we haven't forgotten about you! Your guide will point out greens of interest.
