Overview

During your trip, you will venture through parts of Alaska that very few people have ever set foot in. You will do this while trekking amongst the wildlife; Alaska Bears.

EXCLUSIVE FLY-IN OVERNIGHT BEAR ADVENTURE

An exclusive, small group tour led by highly-experienced Bear Guides to the most natural, undisturbed Bear habitat in Alaska. These bears have not been surrounded by 4-wheelers, planes, or other noisy gasoline powered vehicles. These bears have not been stalked by droves of loud groups of people. Theses bears go about their day in the pure bliss and solitude that nature affords them. We hike quietly, and tread lightly within their habitat to keep the rawness, and realness of this natural beauty as pristine as Mother Nature made it.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Your Experience begins in Kenai, when you arrive at our flight office for your pre-trip briefing and check-in. You will take to the skies in one of our professionally maintained, and flown Alaska bush aircraft. The flight is exhilarating, and you will have the opportunity to see snowcapped volcanoes, massive glaciers, and even some wildlife. Soon you’ll touch down in the backcountry on the west side of Cook Inlet in an exclusive bear habitat.

There’s always the chance that the bears may greet us near the airplane as they frequently roam the area. Once we locate the bears, typically within a mile or two hike, we will watch them, we will gaze upon them in awe. We will study their behavior and let them know we appreciate them allowing us to walk amongst them in their natural domain.

Our Alaska Bear Adventure tours are completely freestyle and unscripted. The bears do not have a script, therefore we will not either. We will roam the area watching the bears, and moving around through this environment as we gain various vantage points, and new viewing opportunities.

The environment is rich with wildlife, and we often see brown bears, and black bears, as well as the occasional meandering moose.

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!
