Kulik Lodge is located within Katmai National Park, home to the highest concentration of protected brown bears on the planet. Thus, aside from being one of the most productive salmon and rainbow trout fisheries in the world, superb bear viewing is available nearby at Kulik Lodge.
The Kulik River’s gin-clear water and gravel bottom are prime spawning grounds for prolific numbers of sockeye salmon entering the watershed each season, thereby providing bears with easy forage. Those looking for a unique guided experience to witness bears in their natural habitat, far away from the crowds, will love what Kulik has to offer.
For our guests staying at Kulik Lodge, we also offer unguided bear viewing fly outs to our sister lodge, Brooks Lodge, located within walking distance of the legendary Brooks Falls. In fact, bear viewing fly outs to Brooks are free to our guests staying at Kulik during the month of July!
Guests interested in day-trips (approx. 20 minute flight) to Brooks while staying at Kulik Lodge will be briefed by the National Park Service upon their arrival at how to conduct themselves in “bear country.” Following their orientation, guests will have the opportunity to view brown bears via three “viewing platforms” strategically positioned along the Brooks River.
