Supernatural Spirit Bear

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 and elusive bear up close while also tracking whales, wolves, grizzlies and other local wildlife.  Journey from bustling Vancouver to peaceful Klemtu, British Columbia on a wildlife viewing experience of a lifetime!
