Great Bears in the Wild
A 900-pound flash of brown fur leaps into an ice-cold rapid and emerges with a salmon between its massive jaws. This isn’t a nature program on your television — it’s an unfiltered spectacle happening just a few feet in front of you. This is the kind of wildlife encounter you’ll experience with Natural Habitat Adventures. Let us connect you with the wilderness leaders that Outside magazine named “World’s #1 Adventure Travel Outfitter” and discover where, and how, you can seek out the best bear-spotting posts — from Alaska’s coastal grizzlies to giant pandas in China — while helping to preserve the habitats of these impressive creatures.
Though iconic to Alaska, North America’s largest land predators are more elusive than you might think. Coastal grizzlies hide within the unspoiled corners and wild beaches of the last frontier, so you’ll follow your expert guide toward the best places to spot them from air, land and water. Watch them quietly and without interruption from your privileged perspective, or learn how to capture the perfect picture on an exclusive photo safari.
Behind two black eyes, China’s national treasure — the giant panda — seems to be smiling as it playfully dirties its black-and-white coat by rolling around on the soft floor of a bamboo forest. Found in the Sichuan province, the giant panda is among the earth’s most endangered species. Seeing them in the wild is uncommon, but Natural Habitat Adventures delves into the misty mountains and bamboo forests of their native habitat and shows you firsthand how conservationists are hard at work to protect these lovable creatures.
Whether you find yourself on Alaska’s untouched coastlines or in the forests of the Far East, you’ll be drawn closer to more extraordinary wildlife than you could ever experience on your own. We’ll find your ideal itinerary with Natural Habitat Adventures, and you can rest assured that you’re embarking on a low-impact, eco-friendly adventure designed to preserve these bear populations.
