Bear-spotting trips with A&K

Whether searching for polar bears, grizzly bears or the elusive spirit bear, Canada and the USA are the obvious destinations. We know these vast countries inside and out, including the best places to see bears and how to maximise your chances of spotting them in the wild.

For the definitive polar bear experience, we recommend a stay at Seal River Lodge on the Hudson Bay coast - a region that is undoubtedly one of the world's best places to see polar bears. For a chance to see the elusive spirit bear, head to the wilds of British Columbia. These fascinating creatures roam the forests here between September and October.

To see grizzly bears in their natural habitat, we recommend a stay at the remote Knight Inlet Lodge in Canada. The prime viewing time is in August, when thousands of pink salmon journey up from the Glendale River. The opportunistic grizzlies gather in impressive numbers on the estuary banks in wait of their prey.

We've selected a few of our favourite bear-watching holidays and tours below. Alternatively, contact a member of the team today to find out more about these magnificent animals and their habitats.
