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 North.

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.

“We were always expected and welcomed with each of our reservations and everything went according to plan. Some idea of how long the drive was from one destination to the next would have been helpful during the driving leg of our excursion.

“Service was great. Three folks taking care of our car were really good. Food was pretty good. Good mix of tour guide" and downtime. Understand the need for the very early morning start times, but even with that, it would have been nice to arrive at the station in the evening at an earlier time."
