Tour Overview

WHY CHOOSE KBA FOR YOUR BEAR VIEWING?

Quite simply, we do bear viewing better than anyone. 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 hopes of seeing a far away glimpse of a bear. There’s something about watching bears from a wooden deck that 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, that a wooden platform seems so out of place. Also, our Bear Guides are just that, Guides, they are not pilots attempting to be Bear Guides. We leave the flying to our pilots and let our Bear Guides do what they do best, show you bears in a safe, and friendly manner that’s not disruptive to the bears. Join us and you will experience something AMAZING!

BEAR VIEWING ADVENTURE FROM SEWARD, 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.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Your experience 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!

From our Kenai office, you’ll fly in a bush plane all the way to 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.

We had the best rune on the Exit glacier hike! The guide was informative, considerate of group dynamics, a.d eager to show us as many cool glacier features as possible! Definitely one of the coolest things I have ever done.

What an amazing experience. The hike was long and strenuous, but if you have hiking experience and endurance, it’s very doable. There are great views of the glacier along the hike and views of the trees and mountains. I was there in time to see the leaves turn orange/yellow. Brandon was a phenomenal tour guide. He was knowledgeable about the trees/plants and the wildlife and answered all the questions the group had. And he was great at spotting bears and goats in the mountains. Being on the glacier was an incredible experience. I was lucky enough to have a fearless group so we went all over the glacier and took countless pictures. Brandon was nice enough to take a group photo to remember the occasion. Definitely recommend the tour!!

We had an awesome day on the Exit Glacier with our guide Brandon. He was very knowledgeable, telling us so many fun facts about the berries, animals and glaciers. He took us to multiple amazing spots on the glacier hike -- moulins, crevasses, waterfalls -- wonders of nature that we've never seen before. It was a truly magical experience. We strongly recommend him and the KBA!

KBA put together an incredible trip packrafting around and downstream from a stunning glacier in the Alaskan range SW of Anchorage. Our guides, Kyle and Brandon, were super knowledgeable, personable, and adaptive to both the weather conditions and our group's needs. I'd travel with them again in a heartbeat -- thank you!
