​Canada Wildlife Holiday: With serious fluctuations of salmon runs in the last few years and various other climatic conditions affecting the reliability of wildlife sightings; one of the best actions to take is to visit two hotspots for grizzly bear viewing in the same trip. In addition, the often ignored Spring season for bear viewing can actually be one of the most productive in terms of sightings and there are considerable cost savings if you have the flexibility to travel outside of the peak season. The weather can also be glorious on Vancouver Island at this time of year and there is other spectacular wildlife to be seen on your Grizzly Bear Safari, including Black Bear, Sea Otters, White-Sided Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises and sometimes a glimpse of Wolf. Jojn us on a Canada Wildlife Holiday to remember!
