A pioneering safari to the sub-Arctic Yukon by helicopter to see the unique ice grizzlies. This is the only place in the world where you can see this phenomenon.

Spend time with the incredible ice grizzlies of the Yukon

This safari allows you to become one of very few people who get to see the unique ice grizzlies of the Yukon. In early October the winter conditions start to set in, and the wet fur of the salmon-hunting grizzlies, starts to freeze, appearing almost like white dreadlocks. This natural phenomenon is not known to occur anywhere else in the world, and there is around a two week window each year in which it can be experienced.

Starting with a two hour helicopter flight to the remote Bear Cave Mountain Camp, take in the awe-inspiring views, before spending a whole week discovering the amazing wildlife. You’ll have six days watching and photographing grizzlies with your expert guide, Phil Timpany. They can often be seen close to the lodge, and you’ll head out into the wilderness for some adrenaline-fuelled encounters in a very wild environment. It is also possible to see moose, caribou, wolves and wolverines.
