Redoubt Mountain Lodge holds exclusive rights for access into this area during this limited window of intense bear activity. They will not be sharing this location with anyone except the bears! The location has been closely watched for several years documenting the abundance of Alaskan coastal brown bears, their behavior and migratory patterns. Finally they have the logistics arranged, transportation in place and the approval granted and are ready to begin taking adventurous enthusiasts on a bear viewing experience truly unique to anything offered around the world.
