Alaska Brown Bear On the Alaska Peninsula the Brown Bear is king! The Alaska Peninsula has one of the highest population density of Alaska Brown Bear in the world. There are hundreds of bear in our area and casual sightings of brown bear along our fishing streams are every day occurances. The brown bear population in our area is well nourished by the millions of Pacific salmon that return each year to the Alaska Peninsula rivers. Quite often we sight brown bear right from the lodge. Nearly every day you can photograph them feeding on Ocean River near the lodge. Brown bear are relentless beachcombers and can often be seen along the black sand beaches of the Bering and Pacific coasts, as well as fishing for salmon along our numerous pristine rivers. We take every opportuntity show our guests the brown bears as Wildman Lake Lodge is one of the best places to view real wild Alaska brown bear, totally undisturbed, in their most natural habitat.
Pacific Walrus One of our more unique photo opportunities at Wildman Lake Lodge is a visit to our own "Wally World." Only 10 miles from the lodge is one of the Bering Sea's most frequented Pacific walrus haul-outs. This is a special resting place where nearly all summer 500 to 2,000 walrus can be seen at one time. We fly you over and land on the black-sand beach, walking distance from a rocky lookout just above the walrus. This is as close and personal to great Pacific walrus in the wild as it gets! This is a once in a life-time experience. Your guide-naturalist will explain the unque life cycle of the Pacific Walrus. You will want a good camera and plenty of film on this exciting fly-out day!
