Join us as we travel to the spectacular Canadian Rockies to search for iconic wildlife such as moose, grizzly bear and black bear, as well as a variety of boreal birds and dazzling displays of wildflowers.

There are many things that make the Canadian Rockies a wonderful place to visit: spectacular glacial lakes, dramatic mountain peaks, thundering waterfalls, deep canyons and, of course, the fantastic diversity of wildlife. But it's the remarkable combination of these highlights that give the Canadian Rockies their international acclaim and justify their designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

On this two-week trip we spend all our time in the heart of these beautiful mountains, exploring at least three of the main national parks (Banff, Jasper and Yoho) as well as numerous lesser known provincial parks. We visit a variety of montane, sub-alpine and alpine habitats, walking in montane meadows, adorned with colourful wildflowers, in search of herds of elk and flocks of bighorn sheep browsing amidst the stands of aspens. 

This wildlife tour is specifically designed to include visits to a variety of areas, whilst allowing sufficient time to explore some of the best wildlife hotspots. Enjoy comfortable accommodation in the most beautiful areas, away from the crowds, allowing the finest opportunities to experience the wilderness and hopefully enjoy some unique wildlife encounters.
