This package runs from June through to October with each month
offering different bear-viewing experiences, as follows:
A favourite time for photographers with an abundance of grass
and wildflowers. Female grizzly bears with their cubs will often head to
the fringe of the coastal estuaries while larger males will be meandering
from the upper alpine meadows.
Warm days and sunshine. Bears alternate between the estuaries for
grass and the forest for berries. Late in the month black bears appear in
large numbers as the salmon spawning season starts.
Bears congregate near the mouths of the river to feed on
salmon. Typically this is the month with the best sightings of spirit bears.
Grizzly bear, spirit bear and black bear sightings increase as
they feed on the spawning salmon.
Bear numbers reach their peak as they add to their food stores
for winter. Seasonal rains.
