There are so many bears in Alaska, the odds are definitely favorable to see one and you can expect to catch a glimpse. Most of the tours start by boarding a small plane or boat that lands you and your expert guides near an isolated camp. Human behavior in these bear-viewing camps is strictly controlled, with the goal of making you into nothing more than a part of the scenery, so the bears will ignore you and go on about their business. If you want to sleep next to where the bears live during peak salmon season, you can stay in a wilderness lodge at night and go on personalized, guided bear-viewing treks by day. Bear-watching packages typically include lodging, meals, guide fees and local boat, van or plane transport from the starting point.
