We loved our overnight trip with Great Alaska to view brown bears near Lake Clark National Park. Great Alaska dealt efficiently with air scheduling so we got in the air to the camp as soon as reasonably possible when weather permitted. The small plane flight to and from the camp provided breathtaking views of Cook Inlet and the volcanos along... More

I've been lucky enough to travel a lot but this was the most memorable and spectacular trip of my life. If you love adventure and wildlife I can't recommend this great Alaska tour enough. After the plane lost our luggage we faced camping on a glacier in our flight clothes in the heavy rain. It was the start of an... More

Dear Victoria: boy that title does not sound like someone who had a lifetime experience with us! Hopefully folks will read farther to see that you had the trip of a lifetime. As to the bearcamp food, we did have an issue out there with a cook and perhaps you were in the middle of that. Food is outstanding and... More

Did a one day bear camp trip out from Anchorage and it was the highlight of our trip across the Rockies, Alaskan cruise and Alaskan interior. It was a wonderful experience to observe the bears in their natural environment and we were thrilled to count 24! The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful and all in all it was well... More

Three day adventure with 65 others was handled well by this lodge and its staff. The fishing guides were tops! This lodge has been running for nearly 50 years. The Kenai river fishing was awesome. Rainbows and Dollyvarden over 24" were normal. Sockeye salmon and king salmon in the 10-11 pound range were normal. The lodge even coordinated shipping some... More

Called to confirm pickup on September 10th. Was told pickup would be at my hotel (Anchorage Marriott) between 7:30-7:45 am. As you can see from my... More
