Accompanied by Gary Zorn, the 'the bear whisperer™', see grizzlies up close feasting on salmon, as you walk upriver in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. Then enjoy the stunning natural landscapes of Tofino, home to grey and humpback whales.

During this thrilling adventure, you have the opportunity to walk among grizzly bears in the boreal forest and on the banks of the salmon-infested rivers that have run through these ancient forests since time immemorial. With only the sounds of salmon splashing and eagles crying overhead, watch and photograph these incredible beasts as they take advantage of nature's bounty.

This is high adventure and only a few intrepid souls have had such an opportunity – walking with bears is not for the faint hearted!

After the excitement of seeing these predators up close, you head to Vancouver Island, your base for whale watching in the pristine waters of Clayoquot Sound and Remote Passage in search of the charismatic grey and humpback whales as you travel to their local feeding area. What's more, as you make your way between the rugged mountains and through the coastal rainforest of British Columbia and Vancouver Island, you will soon be captivated by the wonders of one of the last pristine natural wildernesses on the planet.
