Meet the Bears
It’s time to grin and bear it! In our Meet-the-Bears tour, go behind the scenes to meet some of Grandfather Mountain’s resident black bears and learn all about them, including their names, daily routines, care, histories and more.
Tour times are 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, offered from April through October. The tour takes approximately 30 minutes.
Cost is $20 per person in addition to park admission, including children, ($18 for Bridge Club members), and no more than 12 participants are admitted per tour. Small children must be carried, however, as strollers are not allowed on the tour. No photography is permitted in the behind-the-scenes area.
As with our environmental wildlife habitats area, pets are not allowed. Tours will be cancelled in the event of a thunderstorm.
Make reservations by emailing the Grandfather Mountain Habitats Office at firstname.lastname@example.org in advance or stop by the Fudge Shop at the Wildlife Habitats during your visit.
