See Polar Bears In Alaska!

Get up-close with these elusive bears in their natural habitat.
We invite you to join us on an unforgettable private adventure to Alaska’s Arctic, which includes incredible scenic chartered flights, up-close polar bear viewing and authentic cultural activities. Our guides are on hand to help you capture the perfect photo if needed.

This polar bear trip also offers plenty of chances for cultural exchange and education. Learn from natives and Arctic residents about what it is like to live in such a challenging environment. See the traditional equipment used in tribal whaling expeditions and hear from a tribal elder boat captain how native life is adapting with modern times. Discuss the issues of global warming and sea ice recession with an Arctic environmentalist and author. This is a very unique trip with authentic culture and amazing opportunities for viewing and photographing polar bears in their native habitat.

Judy DiFiore“Not only was viewing polar bears in their natural environment an amazing experience, but interacting with local people enlightened us about lives above the Arctic Circle. A real eye opener!”
