Katmai Wilderness Lodge is located on the remote coast of Alaska's Katmai National Park offering intimate and personalized bear viewing. Completely isolated and with limited guests capacity (12 max), we offer small, intimate guided wildlife excursions for a truly unforgettable Alaskan experience. We offer 3, 4, and 7 night all-inclusive tour packages that include round trip airfare from Kodiak, comfortable overnight accommodations with private bathrooms, exquisite meals, and guided nature excursions on and around the shores of protected bays along the Katmai Coast. While bears take center stage, many of our guests also see harbor seals, sea otters, eagles and a variety of marine bird life. On special occasions we also see wolves, moose, red fox, whales, porpoise, sea lions and river otters. Our highly skilled and professional lodge staff ensures everyone's enjoyment and safety while visiting Katmai Wilderness Lodge.
