Canada contains some of the world’s greatest untamed lands. A vast wilderness that is the last stronghold of the black, brown (or grizzly), and polar bear, where it is undoubtedly the best place to see them, the nutrient rich waters off the coasts of Newfoundland and British Columbia also attract whales and dolphins a-plenty. Over 20 species of whales travel along the East Coast of Canada, making it one of the best places in the world to get close to these incredible marine mammals. Everything from blue whales, to humpbacks, to orcas can be observed in their summer habitats along the Atlantic coast. When thinking about Northern creatures, one animal usually comes to mind: the polar bear. Seeing one of these legendary, powerful creatures in the wild is an experience that’s impossible to forget. Catch a glimpse of the Spirit Bear, also known as the Kermode bear, a white-coated black bear found only in the BC’s Great Bear Rainforest. This area is also home to grizzly bears and black bears.
