This extensive 13-day tour in British Columbia provides numerous opportunities to see some of the finest wildlife in Canada, such as grizzly and black bears, beavers, humpback whales, sea otters and bald eagles.

We spend six nights on Vancouver Island which is an amazing location for wildlife enthusiasts due to its large black bear population and fantastic whale watching opportunities. We visit the best wildlife locations on Vancouver Island including Tofino and Zeballos to spot the fantastic fauna. Furthermore, this island really is a microcosm of British Columbia with rugged mountains, dense forests and desolate beaches. 

Returning to mainland British Columbia by plane, we stay for three nights at the award-winning Tweedsmuir Park Lodge in the southern reaches of the Great Bear Rainforest. Our time at this comfortable and high-quality lodge is our opportunity to see grizzly bears either as we drift downstream along the nearby rivers on board small wooden skiffs or from viewing platforms close to the lodge. Over the course of the holiday, we should see the very best wildlife that British Columbia has to offer.
