The Spirit Bear, also known as the Kermode bear, is found across the North and Central regions in British Columbia. The Kermode is also British Columbia’s official provincial mammal. Tracking the Spirit Bear in the Great Bear Rainforest, Northern British Columbia is a memorable experience. Best time to visit the rainforest is in September and you can choose between various luxury resorts and lodges, like King Pacific and Nimmo Bay. When you visit the Gribbell Island, ask for Marven Robinson, who is the local guide and is like an encyclopedia on Spirit Bears.
Shy and nocturnal; wolves are by and large elusive. However, people have still spotted them in the wilderness at the various national parks around Canada. If you plan to visit Ontario in August, we recommend you to visit Algonquin National Park on Thursdays. After the sunset, at a specific time, you can join the park rangers who lead the visitors by imitating loud wolf howls. After sometime you will hear large packs of wolves respond.
If you’re planning to book your flights for October or November, you may just witness the southernmost population of the polar bears that live in the wild.
