Overview
You can only access Lake Clark National Park and Katmai National Park in Alaska by aircraft, which makes things a little difficult if you don’t own a plane. This Alaskan bear country tour from Homer flies you aboard a 6-seat Cessna 206 aircraft to one of the national parks. Once there, you’ll go on a guided 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) hike through the Alaskan wilderness to see bears in their natural habitat.
