Wildlife in Spasski River Valley & Bear Search - IC21

The Spasski River is one of the many salmon streams on Chichagof Island that sustain the area's high population-density of Alaskan Coastal Brown bears. The journey out to the river is a tour in itself, as the glacier-made landscape of evergreen forest & muskeg unfolds into the Spasski river valley. Along the way, your guide will tell you about the Tlingit village of Hoonah & the rich history & unique ecology of the island. Arriving at the site, your guide will lead you on 'the trail of the bears,' used for thousands of years by the island's largest inhabitants & other wildlife. Sightings of bears & other wild animals are not guaranteed, but chances of spotting one on this tour are good.

The journey out to the Spasski River is a tour in itself with your local guide narrating as your bus travels through the Tlingit village of Hoonah and through the forests and muskegs of Chichagof Island.  Watch for bald eagles, woodpeckers, Sitka black-tailed deer and especially the Alaska Coastal brown bear. When you arrive at the river your guide will lead you on 'the trail of the bear,' a boardwalk that follows in the footsteps of the island's largest inhabitant and other wildlife that have used this area for thousands of years to access the bounty of the river and surrounding valley.

Minimum age to participate is 8 years old. Wear comfortable walking shoes, warm layered clothing and a waterproof jacket. Weather conditions in southeast Alaska may change suddenly. This excursion involves approximately 800 yards of walking over gravel and boardwalk paths. Given the wilderness nature of this excursion, the roads are often bumpy and may be dusty. Bring your cameras, video cameras and binoculars! For safety reasons, sightings of these wild bears are not guaranteed, but your chances of spotting one are good.
