Fortress of the Bear
4639 Sawmill Creek Rd, Sitka, AK 99835, USA
Fortress of the BearBears are an unmistakable feature of Alaskan wildlife—and occasionally, they are injured, orphaned or otherwise in need of help. Fortress of the Bear has helped rehabilitate bears since 2007, and visitors who stop by have the chance to see these amazing creatures up close. A covered viewing platform lets people get within eight meters of the bears while naturalists tell the individual bears’ stories and teach people about the lives of these remarkable animals.
