Description

The only permanent residents of the Klemtu area, the Kitasoo/Xaixais people have lived in small villages along the rivers and bays long before European settlers. Many Kitasoo/Xaixais believe the Spirit Bear holds supernatural powers, with folklore stating that ‘Raven made one in every ten black bears white to remind the people of a time when glaciers covered this land.’ Witness this majestic bear up close on a journey that will take you from bustling Vancouver to peaceful Klemtu, British Columbia on a wildlife viewing experience of a lifetime!

Trip to Canada

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.
