Everything you need to know about spirit bear holidays
Bright white against the dense green forests on the coast of British Columbia, these ‘spirit’ bears are a sight to behold. You explore the coast on an expedition ship that delves into untouched fiords and plies through peaceful waters, pierced by inquisitive humpbacks.
Almost exclusive to the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia, spirit bears feed on vegetation, abundant with bulbs, fruit, insects and rodents, as well as delicious salmon throughout the summer to fatten up for the long cold winters.
Watching these beautiful creatures swiping fish from spawning streams with their strong jaws and claws is an incredible sight, and in fact, spirit bears appear more successful than the blacks at this - perhaps owing to their colour being less obvious to the fish below the water.
