Canadian Wilderness Holidays
Canadian nature holidays are your chance to slow down and
appreciate the finer details of the landscape, from forested
islands to diverse coastlines and lofty mountains. One element of
nature that draws visitors repeatedly, though, is wildlife. Whether
you fancy grizzly viewing on remote islands, whale watching in the
open water, or a chance to spot polar bears in the Arctic, there
are endless outdoor adventures to be had in the Great White
Bear watching is an integral part of wildlife holiday packages.
Your tour may take you by floatplane to the remote Knight Inlet,
where British Columbia's largest population
of grizzly bears live, or by train deep into Jasper
or Banff National Parks, where these
massive mammals roam freely in the Canadian Rockies.
While seeking out grizzlies, you may also catch a glimpse of black
bears or the elusive Kermode. Of course, moose, caribou, wolves,
bighorn sheep, and mountain goats also come into view during Canada
grizzly bear tours.
As for northern Canada adventures, Churchill polar bear tours
are some of the most unique. Aboard a raised Tundra Buggy, venture
into the tundra in search of these majestic creatures and other
arctic wildlife, including fox and snow geese. Windows surround the
buggies, and on the back, an open viewing platform offers an even
more immersive polar bear experience.
Coastal Canadian wilderness holidays often include whale
watching expeditions. Cruise along the Inside Passage off British
Columbia's coast to watch humpbacks, orcas, and gray whales. Spot
13 whale species, including blue whales and pilot whales, while
sailing along the St. Lawrence River near Quebec. In the Maritimes,
keep your eyes peeled for minke and finback whales breaching in the
Bay of Fundy. There are adventure activities in Canada from coast to
coast and everywhere in between.
