Few places on Earth are as blessed with the kind of scenic views and diverse wildlife Northern BC has to offer. From majestic grizzlies chasing wild salmon in the pristine rivers of The Great Bear Rainforest to Orcas skimming the surface of the ocean, Northern BC is the place to visit if you’d like to experience nature in action.
Our expertly guided tours can get you up close and personal with our northern wildlife, while maintaining a safe, respectful distance that does not disturb them.
As the morning mist rises, the bears start strolling along the shores of the Dala-Kildala River looking for their first catch of the day. All you have to do is bring your camera and watch this scene unfold from the safety and comfort of your jet boat. Take a guided grizzly bear tour of the iconic Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view grizzlies in their natural habitat. You can also spot grizzly and black bears and (if you’re lucky) even spirit bears near the lodge.
Bear viewing season in the coastal estuaries of the Great Bear Rainforest ranges from May until mid-July. By the late summer and fall, the bears move inland, which is ideal if you’d like to spot bears in the rivers chasing spawning salmon. Our guides will know the best places to go. We’ll explore numerous tributaries of the Skeena river, like the Dala-Kildala River and use our solar inflatable jet boat to witness bears in their natural habitat. For the ultimate adventure, combine your bear viewing tour with a scenic ride in one of our helicopters. Our team will then pick you up with the boat and the bear viewing can begin!
BC’s North Coast is a stunning location with some of the most spectacular marine life on the planet. Prince Rupert, located only an hour and half drive (or a short helicopter trip) west of Terrace, is a world-renowned location for whale watching. Grey whales, humpbacks and orcas migrate every year along the coast of Northern BC in their endless search for food. The Prince Rupert whale watching season is from April until October, peaking in the late summer months. Our team will help you explore the North Pacific’s vast waters for breath-taking views of these gentle giants.
