Tour description provided by Viator

Observe wild Alaskan Bears in their natural habitat on this 6-hour day trip from Homer. Depart by bush plane and fly over volcanoes and glaciers en route to viewing locations in either Katmai or Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. You'll spend several hours on the ground while your pilot/guide narrates the behavior of Coastal Brown (aka Grizzly) bears.
Board a Bush Plane at Homer Alaska Airport for a small-group trip to Katmai National Park & Preserve or Lake Clark National Park (depending on weather and Bear activity), both of which offer unparalleled bear-viewing opportunities. The exact location will change throughout the season as Alaska's coastal brown bears follow their food source, which moves from sedge meadows and clamming in the spring to chasing wild salmon later in the summer. Fly past glaciers and volcanoes en route to your destination  Upon landing, prepare to hike up to 3 miles (4.8 km) over uneven, soft, or muddy terrain to  views of grizzlies roaming and hunting for food in their natural environment — sightings guaranteed.  You'll spend approximately 3 hours on the ground in this wild bear habitat and learn from your guide about safe viewing practices along the way. Then hop back aboard your aircraft for the return flight to your starting point. Please note: fish products and bear spray of any kind are prohibited on this tour.
