This journey includes three full days of grizzly bear viewing in the Great Bear Rainforest—an area known to be one of the best places in the world to observe grizzlies and other wildlife such as wolves, black bears, otters, pine martins, mink and bald eagles. Nights in Vancouver and Port Hardy at each end of your time at rustic Great Bear Lodge facilitate an easy journey to the remote site, nestled at the mouth of a pristine salmon river.

The Itinerary

1 | VANCOUVER, BC

Upon your arrival at the Vancouver Airport, you’ll walk the short distance to your airport hotel, which is attached to the international terminal. Accommodations are at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport in a Fairmont Room.

2 | GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST, BC

A scheduled flight will transport you from Vancouver to Port Hardy, from where you will catch a seaplane flight to the Great Bear Rainforest. En route, enjoy views of the breathtaking central coast and the rich waters of Queen Charlotte Strait. Conservationists across the globe revel at the 8 million acres of Great Bear Rainforest, one of the few intact and complete ecosystems on the planet. Your grizzly bear experience begins in the afternoon. Accommodations are at Great Bear Lodge.

3-4 | GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST, BC

Each early morning and late afternoon 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. When you’re not spotting bears enjoy an interpretive rainforest walk where you learn about the local flora and fauna. Return to the lodge each night for a wilderness-inspired gourmet meal. Accommodations are at the Great Bear Lodge.

5 | PORT HARDY, BC

After a parting session with the bears, enjoy lunch at the lodge before returning to Port Hardy, where you will be transferred to your hotel overlooking the inner harbour. Accommodations are at the Kwa’lilas Hotel.

6 | PORT HARDY, BC

Today you will make your own way back to the Port Hardy Airport for your flight back to the Vancouver International Airport. Safe travels!
