Discover the rugged scenery and wildlife of Western Canada

Reiserute

  • Day 1: Start Vancouver.
    Those on the group flight will be met at the airport and transferred to our hotel in Vancouver. Those on Land Only arrangements should make their own way to the start hotel this afternoon/evening. There will be an opportunity to meet your guide and fellow travellers this evening. Accommodation: The Listel Hotel (or similar)
  • Day 2: Discover Vancouver; ferry to Vancouver Island.
    Vancouver is often hailed as Canada's most beautiful city. This cosmopolitan and diverse metropolis is in stark contrast to the rest of British Columbia, but always proves to be a highlight. We have an orientation tour this morning with time to take in the sights of Gastown and Granville Island, from which they are some great viewpoints overlooking the city. In the afternoon transfer to the port to board a ferry to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, a one and a half hour journey across the Strait of Georgia. We spend some time visiting this gateway city before settling into our hotel for the night. Accommodation: Travelodge Nanaimo (or similar)
  • Day 3: Visit Cathedral Grove to see Douglas fir trees.
    After breakfast we begin our drive to Ucluelet or Tofino, our location for the next three nights. On the way we will make a stop for a walk at Cathedral Grove Provincial Park to see the last remains of the temperate rainforest that covered the island more than a thousand years ago. This is one of the most accessible areas of giant Douglas-fir trees in the province and there are many trails enabling us to meander through Douglas-fir, Western Hemlock, Grand fir and Western Red Cedar trees. Today's total journey time is around 3.5 hours. Accommodation: Tofino Motel Harbourview (or similar)
  • Day 4: Pacific Rim N.P.; boat excursion to observe Grey and Humpback whales.
    Pacific Rim National Park is nestled between the mountains of the Vancouver Island Range and the Pacific coastline. We walk inside the park this morning in order to admire the rich natural heritage of the west coast of Canada. With almost 10 miles of sand and a huge collection of driftwood, the next stop from the rugged beaches is Japan! We usually take one of the trails to the beach and visit during low tide to explore some of the intertidal pools and rocky islands. In the afternoon we board Zodiacs with a naturalist guide who will lead a 2.5 to 3 hour whale observation excursion (depending on the low-tide schedule, this activity may take place earlier in the day). Our goal is to see Humpback and Grey whales, but it is also common to come across Orcas, seals and sea lions amongst the rocky headlands. Today's driving time should not exceed two hours. Accommodation: Tofino Motel Harbourview (or similar)
  • Day 5: Visit Tofino Botanical Gardens; boat excursion to observe Black bears.
    Obtain a greater understanding of the rainforest environment this morning at the Tofino Botanical Gardens. There is a lovely birdwatching area where woodpeckers, songbirds and hummingbirds can be found, and Bald eagles are sometimes seen circling overhead in search of prey on the neighbouring Tofino Mudflats. Late this afternoon we board Zodiacs for a 2.5 hour expedition to observe Black bear and Bald eagle (depending on the low-tide schedule, this activity may take place earlier in the day). In the wilderness of Clayoquot Sound, Black bears can be found searching for crabs and clams on the rocky beaches. We'll travel the fjord inlet by Zodiac, looking in sheltered bays and stopping to see any Black bears that we find from the comfort of our Zodiac. Accommodation: Tofino Motel Harbourview (or similar)
  • Day 6: To Campbell River
    Depart Ucluelet and drive for four hours to Campbell River on the North Shore of Vancouver Island. Campbell River is known as the 'Salmon Capital of the World' for its hugely impressive salmon runs where five species of Pacific salmon can be found in the river. It has been designated as a Heritage River for its importance in British Columbia - following the fish are bears, seals, kingfishers and eagles. This afternoon we stop at Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park to enjoy the beach. Accommodation: Painters Lodge (or similar)
  • Day 7: Boat excursion to Orford River to observe Grizzly bears.
    Board a covered boat for a full day excursion to the Orford River area (on the mainland of British Columbia) to observe Grizzly bears in their natural habitat. Conservative estimates suggest there are 10,000 Grizzly (Brown) bears living in British Columbia, with 92% of the original habitat of Grizzlies still occupied. The abundance of spawning salmon in the Orford River at this time of year brings Grizzlies down to feast. A two-hour journey by boat with a spectacular backdrop of mountainous scenery brings us to the mouth of the Orford River. From here we take a short bus journey inland, where there are five viewing platforms from which to spot the bears. We visit one or sometimes two of these platforms, from where we hope to observe the bears catching and feeding on salmon, sometimes with cubs in tow. On the boat journey to and from the Orford River we may also see Black bears, Orcas, Humpback and Grey whales, dolphins, porpoise and Sea lions. Accommodation: Painters Lodge (or similar)
  • Day 8: Quadra Island for hiking or optional sea kayaking.
    Board a ferry for a 10-minute journey across the Discovery Passage to Quadra Island where we spend the day exploring the islands trails and beaches by foot. There is also an optional excursion from Quadra Island to try sea kayaking. This three-hour excursion is accompanied by kayak and marine life observation guides and is suitable for beginners. There is never a dull moment paddling by kayak around Quadra Island - we could see soaring eagles, Oyster catchers, herons, cormorants, gulls and if we are lucky, we may come across seals, Sea lions, dolphins and porpoise! In addition, there will be lots of inter-tidal life including starfish, sea urchins, jellyfish and crabs. The mountain views offer a stunning backdrop to this excursion. Accommodation: Painters Lodge (or similar)
  • Day 9: Transfer to Victoria; ferry to Vancouver.
    We drive for around four hours to Victoria, making stops along the way to enjoy the scenery of Vancouver Island for the last time. This afternoon we board a ferry across the Strait of Georgia, admiring the small islands and breath-taking panorama of the city of Vancouver as it comes into view. In the late afternoon there will be some free time to explore Vancouver at your own pace, visiting Stanley Park or China Town. Accommodation: The Listel Hotel (or similar)
  • Day 10: End Vancouver.
    Those on the group flight will be transferred to the airport today. Those on Land Only arrangements are free to leave at any time.
