    Seal River Heritage Lodge

    This region’s combination of diversity and sheer natural elegance is sure to amaze you, so make sure your camera battery is charged at all times, and keep your eyes peeled for huge pods of whales, countless birds, caribou and of course, magnificent polar bears, all regularly seen swimming or basking near the water’s edge.

    Days here generally start with breakfasts at 8am, and tours  (typically departing around 9.30am each day and depending on weather and group interest), that may include marine tours and beluga whalewatching, trekking in the tundra, or being entranced by tales from your guides’ own northern adventures. And after dinner, opportunities abound for night-time wildlife or Northern Lights viewings too.​

  • Days 12-14

    Klemtu

    Located deep in the Great Bear Rainforest, the largest intact temperate rainforest in the world, Spirit Bear Lodge invites you to explore the natural habitat of the elusive Kermode (or ‘Spirit Bear’) – thought by scientists to be a genetic variation of the black bear that roams throughout BC; as well as the ancestral lands and traditional territory of the Kitasoo/Xai’xais First Nation.

    ​Each day you’ll travel with your guides by boat into the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest in search of Spirit
    Bears, grizzlies, eagles and a host of other wildlife. Your guides have an intimate knowledge of the behaviour and movement patterns of the bears and will often situate guests under the forest canopy or on a rocky outcropping to get intimate and special eye-level viewing and photographic opportunities as the bears forage for roots and berries or feast on salmon. Depending on location you may also board small skiffs and propel silently under oar or by small outboard motor up a river, or into the braided channels of an estuary to view bears.​​
