Bear Viewing Week at the Copper River Lodge

Are you interested in bear viewing?  Let us put together the perfect combination of bear viewing, fishing, and other activities in Alaska.


This week can include a trip to the famous Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park.  Brooks Falls is renowned as one of the best bear viewing locations in the world. 

We can also boat, raft, or hike the Copper River and other local streams to view bears in their natural environment and not on a crowded viewing platform.  Let our skilled guides take you up some of the beautiful and small rivers around Lake Iliamna and Katmai National Park and Preserve.  These rivers are blessed with some of the largest sockeye salmon runs in Alaska.  As a result, the grizzly bears (actually Alaskan Brown Bear) flock to these small streams for the easy prey.



Late July and early August are the peak times for bear viewing.  If there is a fisherman in the group, we can catch a few trout or salmon while you wait for the bears to come out.  Fly fishing is our specialty and we can get even the most novice fisherman hooked on fishing. 

We also have a lake boat that can take you out on Lake Iliamna to view even more remote creeks with bears, fresh water seals, and other wildlife.  Hiking, kayaking, floatplane sight seeing, and other non-fishing opportunities are also possible.  It is a great family trip.
