Itinerary

Day 1-3 - Port Hardy to Great Bear Lodge.
Your representative will meet you in Port Hardy and assist you with your transfer to the Great Bear Lodge by seaplane (departure at approximately 15:00). Upon your arrival at this spectacular wilderness retreat you will be met by your hosts and shown to your private room. Later you will participate in your first thrilling wildlife viewing session. In the evening enjoy a fresh gourmet meal prepared with the best local produce and seafood available, served with complimentary wine or beer. As well, participate in an informative audio visual presentation on the grizzly and its place in the local ecology. Relax in the lodge's sitting room, or watch the moon rise over the mountains from its large decks. A perfect way to end the day! Overnight at Great Bear Lodge.

DURING YOUR STAY - Great Bea Lodge
The Great Bear Lodge is pleased to promote low-impact ecotourism, using wind and solar power and taking special care not to disturb the bears or their environment. Scheduled morning and afternoon bear viewing sessions coincide with times when the bears are the most active. Accompanied by an experienced wildlife biologist you will observe the bears as they roam freely in their natural habitat as you float by boat through nearby estuaries or watch from specially-designed optimal viewing areas. Keep a close eye for other possible wildlife sightings such as wolves, otters, bald eagles, black bears, pine martins and mink. Daily guided activities such as boat tours and a popular interpretative rainforest walk are offered between morning and afternoon viewing excursions, and a delicious lunch awaits you back at the lodge. Guests arriving in fall will also be able to witness the incredible sight of thousands of migrating salmon from a series of enclosed viewing stands along the river. Watch as the grizzlies hunt for fish in preparation for their coming hibernation. Overnight at Great Bear Lodge

Day 4 - Great Bear Lodge to Port Hardy
On your day of departure you'll participate in a final bear-watching session, followed by a farewell brunch before being transferred back to Port Hardy in the afternoon (between 16:00 and 18:00).
