Katmai National Park Bear Viewing Tours
In June 1912 a violent eruption of the Novarupta Volcano turned a huge track of wilderness into a landscape of ash-covered mountains, smoking valleys and thousands of steam vents.
The valley floor became known as the Valley of 10,000 Smokes and subsequently became the national monument now known as Katmai National Park and Preserve.
This remote wilderness has a deserved reputation for its truly spectacular mountain scenery and for the richness and diversity of its wildlife.
It has the world’s largest population - more than 2,000 - of protected grizzly bears.
At Brooks Falls they congregate at the rivers edge to fish for salmon while at Hallo Bay they are frequently seen feeding on sedges along the shoreline.
