On the mainland coast of British Columbia, the Great Bear Rainforest stretches over 250 miles and is a land of mist-shrouded valleys and glacier-cut fjords, some of the oldest trees in the world, sheltering coves and coastline, rich salmon streams and bears!
Spot the Kermode, grizzly bears, black bears, cougars, wolves, foxes and many more fascinating animals on nature tours and hikes, and the cool waters provide some of the finest sport fishing opportunities in Canada. Throughout the summer sailboats silently skirt the waves, and kayakers slip along the rarely-explored coastline.
Take a bear viewing tour from a boat and see the bears in spring as they are feeding on the sedges and other plants of the estuarine grasslands. This is also mating season. In summer you may have to go a little further afield to see them munching on berries and lookout for the curious seal pups. You can also spot the grey and humpback whales from the shoreline in summer. In the early autumn wolves become more vocal and the salmon arrive in significant numbers. This is the time to see the largest number of bears and cubs, but by the end of October they are moving towards hibernation.
