This trip was the highlight of my year. They were spectacular; the guides and the staff were beyond friendly and knowledgeable, and we felt safe and well cared-for every minute of the trip. We chose a helicopter ride in May, which was before the busy season, and it allowed the bears to come so close and we really enjoyed the scenery and the wildlife. The photos I got were spectacular, and the bears were stunning, including the mama bears and their cubs.

The helicopter safari really lets you get to places in Lake Clark you would never be able to reach otherwise, and for a while we sat on a rock outcrop surrounded by mountains and bears, and it felt like we were the only people in the universe. It was beyond description: sublime.

We will definitely come back, and I have raved about this trip every day for the last 6 months.

Kirsten and Eric where amazing! She helped me plan a special end of the season float plane day trip into Katmai to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday! Not only where they exceptional pilots and guides- they where simply great people. We really enjoyed spending the day with them! We saw SO many bears- up close and personal! They where on the beach, in the trail, in the water, in the falls, just EVERYWHERE! It was an amazing and unique experience that I highly recommend to anyone!! The path to the falls was more like a road plus a short well maintained trail and could be easily accessible to most folks. Even if you never left the viewing platform at Brooks Camp- the trip would be well worth it! Back to the birthday- she made it so special! She had birthday banners, desserts, and a sparkling toast! We can’t wait for our next adventure with them!

My husband and I flew to Katmai National Park. Kristen and Eric were great! And so friendly! We had a great experience. Saw so many bears, and around 5 cubs! We plan on going back to katmai at a different time of year and also lake Clark and plan to go with Ultimate Alaska Safaris!

My wife and I had the best time traveling to Katmai to view bears! Kristen and Eric were very professional and kind, even when “bear jams” made us late returning to the plane. Kristen walked with us as an expert guide, and Eric was a great pilot. We will be using them when re return!

If you want a truly exciting adventure Alaska Ultimate Safaris is highly recommended. Eric and Kerstin were absolutely the best. They made the whole trip exciting with their narrative along the way and experience.
