I'm a wildlife photography fanatic, and big brown bears are some of my favorite subjects. In the fall of 2014, I took two bear trips with Dave, both of which were outstanding. So naturally, on my return to Alaska in June, 2016 there was no...More

We’ve seen bears in Denali and elsewhere but wanted a closer encounter with the formidable animals at their natural habitats. Among the many operators of bear tours, AK Adventures stood out in operating small groups, and the reviews about it were invariably positive. So, we...More
