Part of the world's largest coastal rainforest region, home to towering evergreens such as the western red cedar and Sitka spruce, Great Bear ranges from the Discovery Islands near Vancouver up to the Alaska border. Paddle crystalline lakes, rivers, and estuaries either on your own or on outfitter-organized excursions such as that offered by Norm Hann Expeditions. While you're here you can also visit First Nations communities and heritage sites as well as take eco-excursions (especially those run by expert First Nations guides) to spot wildlife including cougars, whales, dolphins, spawning salmon, grizzly bears and especially its unique Kermode ("spirit") bears, a black-bear subspecies which includes a certain percentage of animals with white coats; the best time for wildlife viewing is the autum salmon run.
