Bear Watching

Grizzly bear watching in Bella Coola (Michael Wigle photo)

British Columbia is prime bear watching territory. The province is home to the rare white Kermode (Spirit) bear, more than half of Canada’s grizzly bears, and a quarter of Canada’s black bears.

Perch in an elevated viewing platform and witness grizzly bears pouncing on and devouring spawning salmon. Drift silently in a riverboat and listen to a black bear and her cubs munching fresh grass sedges. Or catch a glimpse of an elusive white Kermode bear lumbering along a mossy riverbank.

Bear viewing in BC ranges from spotting a bear next to the highway to luxury wilderness adventure trips. It’s possible to view bears without a guide, but guided bear-watching trips are the best way to ensure a safe, successful experience of viewing bears in their natural habitat.
