Grizzly Bears of the Great Bear Rainforest
Travel by boat along the Great Bear Rainforest on the north-most shore of Vancouver Island in search of the magnificent grizzly bear. Led by a Wildlife Biologist, this tour offers wonderful photography opportunities.
Frontiers North’s lodge-based Great Bear Rainforest tour runs from early spring to late fall, allowing guests to experience British Columbia’s grizzly bears in different seasons.
- Early spring tours witness the bears as they emerge from the mountains to graze on succulents and grasses at the river estuary.
- During the summer months, guests will float quietly along the estuary sloughs to observe the bears and the numerous birds and other animals that inhabit the area.
- Mid-August to late fall, when thousands of salmon return to the river estuaries, guests can watch from enclosed viewing stands along the riverbank as the bears gorge themselves in preparation for their impending hibernation.
