A Small, Private, Luxury Lodge on a Remote Mountain River
Our wilderness guides are expert naturalists, animal trackers and bear guides. They will lead you into bear country in tiny groups – typically two to four guests with one guide.
To ensure you are far from the tourist crowds, we have fashioned our own wilderness trails. When you are out with us you will often not see another person all day.
As well as grizzly and black bears we have deer, moose, elk, cougars, lynx, bobcats and wolves and you may see some of these animals or signs of their passing.
The megafauna we watch are free-spirited and wild. We do not use viewing stands or attractants or entice semi-tame animals to come to us.
Instead we prefer unscripted experiences, moving quietly through wildlife habitat, walking on their trails, following their tracks, and viewing them in their own world.
We are on the cutting edge of bear conservation, and are politically active in saving bears and bear habitat.
The lodge was set up in 2006 by Julius, a former British foreign correspondent, and his Estonian-born wife Kristin, a trained and accomplished chef.
Many articles have been written and a number of documentaries screened featuring Julius and Kristin, their lives, their pioneering work in conservation, and what Wild Bear Lodge offers.
