The Canadian wilderness is one of the best places in the world to watch wildlife. Offering the perfect playground for nature lovers, we have an array of wonderful itineraries and lodges that will enable you to tick polar bears, whales, brown bears, moose and more off your wildlife bucket list.
The Canadian Rockies and British Columbia beckon you in with their promise of watching magnificent grizzly bears swipe for salmon as they tackle the streams, or spotting elusive white spirit bears wandering along the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast. Venture to Vancouver to witness the breach of a gigantic whale, or hike through the Rockies in search of moose and elk.

Nova Scotia offers comedy gold with its adorable puffins, as well as incredible dolphin watching in the spring and summer months. Back inland, Newfoundland and Labrador is one of our favourite places for seeing impressive wolves in the wilderness.
