Traveler Stories: Bears of Brooks Falls, Alaska

Natural Habitat Adventures August 13, 2018 4

“It is hard to say which part of our Ultimate Alaska Wildlife Photo Safari was my favorite since the whole experience was just amazing. Denali where ‘the mountain’ was out for a full day was magical! But the visit to Brooks Camp with the brown bears was mind-blowing! I had no idea we would see so many bears so up close and personal! The whole trip went so smoothly and was so perfect due to our two Expedition Leaders.”

“Being in the presence of wild bears is an awesome experience. While there is always some danger, the rangers and our naturalist guide made our safety their top priority; of this there was no doubt and I never felt afraid… not even a little!”
