Watching wild polar bears in their natural habitat is one of the unique experiences in the world. The symbol of Arctic can be spotted near the Katovik and Barrow communities. The period between August and October is a ​no-ice season, so bears usually rest on the​ beaches, that’s why it’s the best time to see these animals. Powerful predators of water and ice, polar bears can​ be dangerous for human, so keep your distance.
