Beginning in late July, the river fills with migrating salmon while brown bears come down to the river's edge to feed. As the number of salmon in the river increases, the likelihood of seeing bears down along the river increases, with a good probability of bear sightings from mid-August through late September.
As you drive through the park, your guide knows where to stop for the best views and the possibility of wildlife sightings. Your guide is equipped with a powerful spotting scope to bring the wildlife in close and will help interpret the behavior of the various wildlife and explain how the animals fit into the Chilkoot's complex ecosystem. Make sure you bring your camera to take advantage of the numerous photo opportunities.
