Wildlife & Nature Safaris

Nature enthusiasts flock to Canada year after year to view bears, moose, deer, elk, and more, in their natural habitat.

You can watch in awe as a mother grizzly bear teaches her cubs how to fish at water's edge, observe two polar bears spar on the frozen tundra, and discover how the Orca whale moves effortlessly past your boat and through the water.
