Katmai National Park has both the largest grizzlies and the highest concentration of grizzlies in the world. Situated within the national park is Katmai Wilderness Lodge, a quaint, eco-friendly lodge set along the coastline with a spectacular backdrop of majestic mountains.
With a maximum of just 12 guests at a time, and a range of intimate wildlife excursions on offer, this remote destination is one of the best places to view Alaska’s grizzly bears away from the crowds. With no viewing platforms, and all excursions led by experienced guides with more than 10 years in the industry, Katmai Wilderness Lodge offers the chance to join the grizzlies on land along the banks of the river, allowing for unparalleled photography opportunities.
While the approximately 2,200 bears of Katmai National Park take centre stage here, guests also have the chance to see seals, sea otters, foxes, wolves, wolverines, porcupines, moose, lynx, whales, sea lions and mountain goats on excursions around the lodge.
