This is a destination we have the ‘inside track’ on, as our North American Operations Manager, James Manson, lives in British Colombia for many years. In this province we have personally discovered multiple incredible locations for brown and black bear viewing; many of them very much off the beaten track. We were the first wildlife company to offer our signature ‘3 bears tour’; where you have the chance to see brown, black and polar bears all in the same 2 week travel window.
Our specialist knowledge has enabled us to organise private filming and photographic safaris in the High Arctic, in locations as remote as Baffin Island and Igloolik. So, whether it’s a self-drive bear and whale watching tour on beautiful Vancouver Island, or looking for the legendary Spirit Bears in the Great Bear Rainforest; we can make it happen and you will also be helping conserve the wildlife your photograph through our partnership with Polar Bears international
