Go wildlife watching
Canada is home to a huge number of birds and mammals. More than 630 bird species have been recorded, including ospreys and bald eagles. Beavers, raccoons and marmots are found throughout the forests of Canada, but wolves and cougars are more difficult to find. Spot whales near Vancouver, Hudson Bay and the Bay of Fundy; or search for Canada’s iconic bears. Grizzly bears can be found throughout the western and northern provinces, while black bears are more widespread. Visit the Great Bear Rainforest in the west to see grizzly bears and lesser known Kermode and spirit bears. Find polar bears in Churchill, aptly named the ‘polar bear capital of the world’.
