Katmai Wilderness Lodge
Bear Viewing and Eco-tours for Wildlife Enthusiast and Photographers
You’ll experience unmatched bear viewing, up-close wildlife opportunities, and memorable nature excursions set against the backdrop of one of Alaska’s most exquisite landscapes: Katmai National Park.
Katmai National Park boasts the world’s highest concentration of bears, an estimated 2,200, giving you the unmatched opportunity to observe these magnificent creatures up close. Travelers come from around the globe to glimpse the famous brown bears of Katmai National Park where bears roam the rivers and bay right outside our lodge. There is plenty room for great diversity of wildlife in Katmai which encompasses millions of acres of pristine wilderness, with wild rivers and streams, rugged coastlines, broad green glacial hewn valleys, active glaciers and volcanoes.
Forty-two species of mammals inhabit the park. While bears take center stage, many of their guests also see harbor seals, sea otters, eagles and a variety of marine bird life. Other species that you may see (though less predictable), include wolves, moose, red fox, whales, porpoise, sea lions and river otters.
Katmai teems with an astounding array of winged creatures, especially during the spring migratory and summer breeding seasons. Puffins, ducks, geese, kittiwakes, shorebirds, and bald eagles make this region a true bird lover’s paradise. Here at Katmai Wilderness Lodge, you’ll be nestled in a rich ecosystem abundant with some of the world’s most extraordinary animals.
Throughout your stay, our expert guides ensure your complete safety and comfort. Accompanied by our professional staff, you’ll set off each morning by boat, exploring the myriad of beaches within the bay where bears congregate in search of clams or catch salmon as they travel upstream. If conditions allow, you’ll join bears and other animals on land, giving you extremely rare wildlife viewing, and of course, unparalleled photo opportunities.
You’ll venture through the pristine Alaskan landscape by day, and settle comfortably in your cozy Lodge by night. Our professional team of guides give you an inside look at this wild Northern paradise, and the Lodge staff can’t wait to make your stay fun, relaxing, and memorable. At the end of the day, you’ll relax in the comfort of a modern log cabin styled lodge, complete with private bathrooms, hot showers and flush toilets in the middle of the wilderness at Alaska’s Katmai National Park.
