Family of 4 with 14 & 6 yr boys, visiting Alaska July 8-19th. So far we plan to be 1 night in Barrow, 2 nights in Seward, 2 nights in Denali NP, 2 nights in Fairbanks and 2 nights in Anchorage. Still open with another 2 nights. We will probably see some bears at a distance in Denali.
We want to see bears catching Salmon in cheap way (~$400 for 4).
Brooks Falls visit would be too expensive, >$600/pp, Homer to Kodiak island trip is not also cheap! Is there any other place around Anchorage/Fairbanks/Denali/Seward/Homer, where we can can spend a day and watch bears catching Salmon and not spend a fortune?
Is there any chance of seeing Arctic Fox or Polar Bear in Barrow?
Thanks in advance.
