Bear watching

A Canada holiday wouldn’t be complete without spotting Canada’s favourite residents. Black bears are commonly sighted in the mountains, while remote wilderness resorts offer excellent grizzly viewing, especially around BC’s salmon run in September. You can spot bears between April and November (except polar bears, which are best in October and November).

The Rockies look incredible by horseback in Banff National Park. The Alberta prairies and BC Interior are other great spots.

Resorts like Whistler and Tremblant are ideal for treetop zip-lining. For a different experience in a harness, try the CN Tower Edgewalk.

Manitoba’s Hudson Bay is the best place for belugas, while BC’s Victoria reigns supreme for orcas.
