Great Bear Rainforest, BC Canada

A scheduled flight will transport you from Vancouver to Port Hardy, from where you will catch a seaplane flight to the Great Bear Rainforest.

Each early morning and late afternoon—when the bears are most active—you’ll head to a different viewing site, either in the estuary, or along the river. A typical viewing session lasts three hours, and each blind has been constructed with the photographer in mind, with comfortable spots from which to view bears. There is nothing quite like seeing your first grizzly emerge from the forest. Accommodations are at the Great Bear Lodge.

When you’re not spotting bears (or grey wolves, otters, black bears, mink or bald eagles), enjoy an interpretive rainforest walk, a guided sea-kayaking tour of the estuary, or a boat cruise to explore the glacier-carved inlet. Return to the lodge each night for a wilderness-gourmet meal. Accommodations are at the Great Bear Lodge.

Trip to Canada

By: Jim

Reviewed on: 30 Aug 2017

Our experience with Entree Canada was excellent. All of the drivers and cars were very good and the recommended guides were knowledgeable and helpful. They scheduled us on Via Rail Canada from Montreal to Quebec City and the attendants were extremely nice and helpful as were the lady porters. One of our traveling companions lost a hearing aid while on the train and didn't discover it until we reached the hotel, Auberge St. Antoine, who called immediately. The train had departed. Miraculously, the next day Via Rail brought the hearing aid to the hotel. That is really good service. Use Entree Canada if you travel to Canada.
