The Village of Klemtu looks out over a protected bay deep in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest.

Take a guided tour with Spirit Bear Adventures in search of the elusive Kermode (Spirit) bear, and keep an eye out for a large resident population of black and grizzly bears.

The best-known residents of the Great Bear Rainforest are Kermode bears, who live here in larger numbers than anywhere else on the planet. In spring, Kermode bears have stark white coats, which change to a butter yellow in fall. They also have black eyes and noses, differentiating them from albino bears. Kermode bears are especially visible along the water’s edge during salmon spawning season, so plan to visit in September or October for the best chance of a sighting.

BC’s central coast is also home to a large number of black and grizzly bears, which are commonly spotted from mid-June through to mid-October.
