Our overnight experiences begin with a van pickup in Anchorage followed by a 135 mile transfer to our main lodge over the spectacular Seward and Sterling highways. After lunch at our riverside main lodge, you'll transfer 12 miles to the Soldotna airport for a 50 minute flight to Alaska BearCamp. Following a thorough orientation you'll spend the rest of the day viewing Brown Bears and exploring the area around the camp, followed by dinner and overnight in custom Weather Port Tent/cabins.
After breakfast, there's more quality time spent watching and photographing the great bears and other wildlife, followed by a flight back to Soldotna some time after 2:00 (depending upon tides, weather and variety of other factors). Those who have chosen round trip transfers from Anchorage will return to Anchorage in the late afternoon, arriving approximately between 7:30 and 9:30 pm at your hotel. Those with rental cars will be on their own upon arrival to Soldotna. Due to the transient nature of these great animals, overnight experiences are offered exclusively, with 2, 3, 4 and 5 day trips available.
Our unique and one of a kind sustainable camp sits in a veritable time machine- with Cook inlet in front and Mt. Illiamna behind, you'll experience authentic Alaska with an amazing and experienced staff who will keep you safe, warm and comfortable while you learn the bears of Chinitna by name!
