Alaska wildlife tour grizzly bear photography

Overview

We always spend many months researching the best grizzly bear viewing locations in both Canada and Alaska and sometimes we come across availability issues, where it is neccessary to think outside of the box to create a tour that is both authentic, unique and most importantly available - not everyone plans their wildlife tour to Alaska 2 years in advance and so making reservations at certain lodges becomes a bit of a lottery in peak bear viewing season - Brooks Lodge is an example of this. Many of our clients want to go and photograph the iconic grizzly bears at Brooks Falls catching the salmon in July, but then prefer a quieter place like Katmai wilderness lodge to finish their trip off in style.
