Bear and other wildlife viewing in May

Jump to last reply

We'll be visiting Anchorage, Talkeetna, and the Kenai last week of May (7.5 days). My wife and 2 daughters are wildlife enthusiasts and I know its early but those are our only possible dates. I'd appreciate suggestions on optimizing our experience. Some thoughts:

1. We'll do a full day Kenai fjords tour.
2. I'd spring for a bear viewing flight although I understand that it is early and we might not see alot?
3. I'd also do a horseback trip into the Kenai Wildlife Refuge if that was highly likely to be more productive than just day hiking.
4. Was not planning on going to Denali - road is open to Toklat in May but 6 hrs RT on a school bus does not sound appealing.
5. Mixed feelings on Homer, but we may have the time.
6. Alaska Canoe will shuttle to Skilak Lake and we can paddle back to Soldotna on the Kenai River. Maybe too many fishing boats and mosquitoes? They also will do guided trips on KWR lakes.

Thanks for any help.
