Wild Grizzly Bears in Wild Places
In September and October we offer our guests fully-immersive nature and wilderness holidays. The focus is on viewing totally wild Rocky Mountain grizzly bears deep in their own habitat.
But we do much else besides – rafting down our wilderness river, walking through the high alpine and watching and tracking other wild animals, such as elk, beaver and moose, and occasionally wolves, cougars and bobcats.
Each day we head out into remote terrain – both in the alpine and down on the river in the rainforest – walking on bear trails, following bear tracks, and viewing bears in their natural habitat.
At this time of year we sometimes view high-elevation bears feeding undisturbed on huckleberries in the high country (until about mid October).
We also watch grizzly bears – sometimes with cubs in tow – fishing for the salmon that come up our wilderness river.
We are experts at tracking bears and deciphering their prints and other sign. We will show you how to read tracks, rubs and tiny hair samples left on trees and explain how bears read the landscape they are moving through.
