Fodor's Expert Review Hallo Bay Bear Lodge

, Alaska, USA

At the northern end of the bay, this is an eco-friendly camp that has been running half-day to multiday bear-viewing trips for more than two decades. Guests stay in rustic yet comfortable heated platform tents or heated cabins and enjoy gourmet meals in an enclosed kitchen. This is true wild bear viewing: no platforms, just the scenery and the bears, who are very much at home. The price tag for a one-night introductory tour includes a round-trip floatplane fare from Homer, meals, lodging, and naturalist guide services.

PROS

  • truly wild bear viewing
  • eco-friendly, with solar and wind power and composting toilets
  • gourmet meals

CONS

  • rustic
  • shared bathrooms
  • flights depart from Homer only
