A very important feature of our Alaska brown bear photography expedition is the small group size, as this intimate wildlife encounter is best and most safely experienced with fewer travelers.

This expedition to see bears at the end of the season in the Brooks Falls region ventures into terrain that can be difficult to navigate, requiring travelers to be confident on their feet in varying and challenging conditions. A full day of bear viewing typically involves walking up to 6 miles on multiple outings to daily bear-viewing locations. When conditions are dry and water levels in the river are low, we will wear chest waders to wade up the Brooks River to view bears. When water levels are higher, the bears will typically be at the falls, and walking to view them will be less taxing. At any time, however, conditions can include rough, uneven terrain, bushwhacking through heavy brush, walking in shallow water, and walking through mud—while carrying all of your own gear including camera equipment. Weather is highly changeable at this time of year and may be inclement, with rain or even snow possible. In order to maximize bear-viewing opportunities, we will spend long days in the field. Once at the bear-viewing site, physical activity is quite limited. We may spend several hours sitting on the ground in essentially one spot with little movement. For safety reasons, it is not possible to split the group: individuals may not opt to return to the lodge early or to stay in one place while the rest of the group moves on. Travelers must be of sound health and able to maintain a positive attitude in a wild, remote and unpredictable setting.
Important Information About This Trip
Important note about restroom facilities: At this time of year, Brooks Lodge has closed for the season, and there are no flush toilets available—only basic outhouses near Brooks Camp will be available during the day while we are observing bears in the field.
