Nature Tours

Wild things roam here. Just visiting out region is a nature tour. Expect your first sightings to be majestic bald eagles riding the updrafts overhead or perhaps a black bear munching on sweet grass at the edge of Highway 19 (locally known as “bear alley”). The Roosevelt Elk and Vancouver Island Marmot are unique to the region. Great blue herons fish at the edge of estuaries that echo with the sweet call of songbirds.

The Vancouver Island North region includes a section of the mainland coast that is renowned as one of the world’s finest destinations for grizzly bear sightseeing. Day tours depart from Telegraph Cove to Knight Inlet by boat, and multi-day tours (including accommodation at a floating wilderness lodge) head to the Great Bear Rainforest from Port Hardy by floatplane.
