Wild Canada In Winter

From: £Contact us

Visit the Cariboo Mountains in the height of the Canadian winter in pursuit of Canadian lynx, timber wolf and moose, with the chance of seeing the spectacular northern lights.

Your Wild Canada in Winter tour begins with a flight to Vancouver, where you overnight, before flying to Williams Lake. From here you travel deep into the Cariboo Mountains Provincial Park for a six night stay at the delightful Pyna-tee-ah Lodge. Over the next five days, under the expert guidance of Gary Zorn, you venture out on foot, snowmobile and 4WD in pursuit of three of the regions most iconic mammals: the Canadian lynx, timber wolf and moose.

Whilst the mammals will be your main focus, you can also hope to see some fantastic birds, with bald eagle, pine and evening grosbeak, and great horned and great grey owl all possible.

The evenings will be spent in the warmth and comfort of the lodge, from where you may be fortunate enough to hear the spine-tingling sound of wolfs howling and, if conditions are favourable, the chance to the see magnificent spectacle of the northern lights.
