    Would are our chances be higher if we booked to see bears in end May or early June?

    • Steve says:

      Summer is usually the best time to see bears in most parts of Canada, so June should just edge out May. Regards.

        First 2 weeks of June is mating season in Knight Inlet; a big male will be chasing a not too interested female….finally she settles down and they have some fun…

      Hi Lola,
      The best timing often varies depending on where the bear viewing site is located, but in our valley at Great Bear Lodge mid-May to mid-June is a great time to see the bear during mating season.

    Hello, I’m planning to visit Canada in October. I’m from Brazil and I want to experience some bear spot. I’m interested in 3 of these spots that you commented. How can I contact some guide to schedule this tour? Thank you, Cintia.

    • Steve says:

      Hi Cintia, It’s possible to book directly with the lodges in the story. Follow the links of your favourites. Best of luck in your bear quest – and let us know how it goes. Regards.

      Hi Cintia,
      October is a great time to see the bears, just before they head off to hibernate for the winter. They are fat and furry and very relaxed. As Steve mentioned, you can contact us at Great Bear Lodge or one of the other operators by clicking on the links in the article.
      We would love to host you!
