Experience your very own Full-Day Bear Viewing Adventure in Lake Clark National Park! Completely unscripted and freestyle adventure with the famous brown bears of Alaska.


World-class bear viewing in Lake Clark National Park, with round-trip ground transportation from Seward. Fully guided by professional bear guides, including round-trip bush plane flight, and a delicious picnic-style lunch!

KBA is the only company offering Bear Viewing trips departing from Seward. Entrust KBA to guide you on the most exclusive custom bear viewing adventure, and enjoy an intimate bear viewing experience in the remote backcountry of Lake Clark National Park.

A small group tour led by experienced bear guides to the best Alaska bear viewing and photography observation areas in Lake Clark National Park. After an exhilarating flightseeing tour from Kenai you’ll touch down in Lake Clark National Park and be led by your guide to a premier location to observe bears in their natural environment.


Your trip begins in Seward when your KBA Guide greets you at your place of lodging, or at a designated meeting point (cruise port, etc). You’ll then be transported to our flight office in Kenai; approximately a 2.5 hour scenic drive. But don’t worry, we make the drive a fun “road trip” experience, stopping for photos and looking for wildlife on the way!

Your experience begins with a scenic bush flight from our Kenai office, all the way to shores of Lake Clark National Park. The scenic flight offers up opportunities to see steaming snowcapped volcanoes, massive glaciers, and even some wildlife.

Once you arrive in the backcountry there’s always a chance that the bears may greet us near the airplane as they frequently roam through the area. We’ll set off looking for bears, a nice walk on the beach, through grassy meadows, and to a quiet place to observe bears in their natural environment.

After about 5 hours, it’s time to board the plane for the return flight to Kenai. Once again you’ll get another round of the best flightseeing Alaska has to offer. Then it’s back to Seward on another scenic drive. This trip is fully guided by Kenai Backcountry Adventures.

Adventures in the backcountry are our bread and butter. It’s all up to the bears and the time of season, but we like to take our guests to areas that aren’t crowded and require waiting in line just to stand on a man-made platform in the backcountry. Something about watching bears from a wooden deck feels a bit like zootopia… Maybe it’s just that we’re so used to seeing bears in their natural habitat all over the backcountry of Alaska during our expeditions, that a wooden platform seems so out of place. Join us and we’ll show you something special.
