Bear Track Inn enjoys stunning views of Alaska’s Icy Straight and lies in a secluded spot on the shores of Gustavus overlooking a salmon-rich creek.
As the name suggests this is the perfect summer hideaway to bear watch with the option to visit Pack Creek on Admiralty Island. Here you can observe Alaskan brown and black bear from a safe distance either from floats or bush plane.
Opened in 1997 and handcrafted from 275 Sitka Spruce Logs, Bear Track Inn enjoys views of the spectacular Glacial Bay National Park - home to moose and bear - and offers a menu of both gourmet meals and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. From the vast lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows, a vista of meadows, mountains, and meandering streams lies at your feet.
You can choose from 14 spacious rooms each with a private bathroom and two queen-sized beds and luxurious down comforters. Feel the warmth from the wood-panelled walls and enjoy the stunning wilderness views from the windows.
After a day of adventures, tuck into fresh seasonal cuisine at the on-site restaurant Excursion. The gourmet menu changes each day and features Alaskan favourites such as caribou, buffalo, crab, salmon, and halibut.
From the comfort of the lodge, you can select your itinerary; sail the glacial waters on a private vessel, embark on a whale-watching tour with a cruise around Point Adolphus or take part in salt-water fishing or kayaking excursion. Whatever you do it is sure to be memorable.
