Spasski River Valley Wildlife & Bear Search
The journey out to the Spasski River is a tour in itself, your local guide narrating as your bus travels through the Tlingit village of Hoonah and, quickly, out through the interior forests and muskegs of Chichagof Island. Watch for bald eagles, woodpeckers, Sitka black-tailed deer and the Alaska coastal brown bears that could be anywhere along the road. Once you arrive in the river valley, disembark your bus, and your guide will lead you down a gravel path across a muskeg to viewing platforms strategically positioned over the lower Spasski River. Along the way your guide will describe and illuminate the delicate rainforest ecology that supports our island's massive bears. For safety reasons, bear-sightingsare NOT guaranteed, but your chances of spotting one on this tour are good. Wear comfortable walking shoes, warm layered clothing and a waterproof jacket. Weather conditions in southeast Alaska may change suddenly. And of course remember to bring your cameras, videocameras and binoculars!
Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours
