Bear Watching

Canada is home to polar bears, black bears & grizzlies

One of Canada's most popular activities, the country's bear watching is second to none. British Columbia is king when it comes to grizzlies, home to half of all Canada's grizzly bears in this province alone. And with one of the longest bear-watching seasons in the world, you'll have endless opportunities to view them.

See black bears, grizzly and the ethereal white Kermode or Spirit Bear - found only in BC - from April or May to October. Churchill in Manitoba is the best location to search for polar bears during October and November and you can't get closer to these beautiful giants than on a Tundra buggy tour.

And Canadian Affair has the tours to help you on your way.
