Take a walk on the wildlife side

Here, Canada & Alaska Specialist Holidays offer some top tips on the best way to see the fabulous fauna in Canada.

Canada and Alaska has wildlife in abundance and is a safe haven for grizzly, brown and black bears, polar bears, whales, caribou, moose, deer, wolves and many other species.


Great Bear Lodge


Polar Bear Adventurer

Churchill is the ‘Polar Bear Capital of the World’ and the best way to see them up close and personal is to organise a Tundra Buggy adventure.

These packages include a day or two onboard the Tundra Buggy where you will have access to your personal naturalist and polar bear specialist who will teach you all there is about this fascinating species.

These programs are designed for those who wish to learn about the history and culture of Churchill and region, as well as experiencing the polar bears.


Bear Viewing Lodges

When travelling to either British Columbia or Alaska, bear viewing is highly recommended thanks to the region’s rich forests, salmon-abundant rivers and free flowing streams.

Our recommendation is to stay at a bear lodge where you will have daily guided bear viewing tours and get to sleep, eat and play in the grizzly bear’s backyard. The lodges are a perfect mix of adventure and relaxation, and for those who are interested in landscape and wildlife photography.



The Big Five Safari

Not to be confused with Africa’s Big Five. If you are after an unforgettable experience in Northern Canada, this adventure will have you witness Canada’s Big Five – the moose, black bear, bison, beluga whales and polar bears. This is ideal for those who want the opportunity to see all of this wildlife in a single adventure.


Caribou Migration Explorer 

Head over to Northwest Territories where you will be transferred from Yellowknife to the Arctic Haven Lodge where every Autumn, the Qamanirjuaq Caribou herd leaves their summer calving grounds and journeys 500 kilometres southward to their winter home.

There are hundreds of thousands of Qamanirjuaq Caribou and they are one of the healthiest herds in Canada. Join this trip to discover important migration routes.



Salmon & Wine Discovery 

The salmon migration is an extraordinary phenomenon at the Adams River near Salmon Arm and it happens every year in late September and throughout October.

The annual salmon run is the largest in the world and the Podollan Inn Salmon Arm is delighted to share in the celebration. Then, spend the afternoon savouring a bag lunch from Table 24 and indulge in the discovery of local cool climate wineries and pairings of fresh wines and locally produced meats and farm cheese.
