Get ‘Wild’ in Canada: Adventure World’s top 5 recommendations
To go on a Canada wildlife holiday is like stepping back in time. As much of the wilderness is truly untouched here, you feel as if you could be looking at polar bears, grizzlies, caribou, oxen or many others in a timeless landscape. Some are scary, others are just stunning, but they are all wild. So we reached out to our destination experts to find out their personal recommendations of all things wild and wonderful in Canada
Witness one of the last great wildlife spectacles in North America since the bygone days of the buffalo. Every year hundreds of thousands of Caribou migrate
from the tree-line to their calving grounds on the remote Canadian Arctic tundra, and then back again during the summer and autumn.
Adventure Worlds wildlife camps are set up near one of the main southbound migratory routes and primary water crossings which often allows travellers awesome caribou migration encounters during the period when the cows and new calves are moving southward off the calving grounds.
Adventure Worlds Great Bear Rainforest
sailing expedition is one of the most magnificent ways to explore this wildlife rich region of British Columbia, Canada. The Great Bear Rainforest is part of the Coast Range Mountains and covers more than 64,000 square kilometres, with temperate rainforest meeting the coast which means that sailing along it and anchoring beside it allows great access to some of its remote shores.
This sailing expedition brings you into inlets and islands that are not only home to some of the earth’s most ancient forests but also to prolific salmon, bears, including the famous spirit bear or Kermode bear, sea otters and whales.
Kayaking with Orcas & Beluga Whales
Get eye to eye at sea level, from the eco-friendly vantage of a kayak! In the sheltered waters of British Columbia’s Inside Passage
, hundreds of orcas congregate following the summer salmon runs into the narrow geography of Johnstone Strait. This is the best place on Earth to view wild killer whales,
and the generally calm waters are also ideal for kayaking.
Few of nature’s marvels match the intense aliveness of a Canadian Arctic summer. In a region that's frozen, still and dark for much of the year, the Northland awakens with a burst of energy during these long days when the tundra turns green, animals come forth in great flocks and herds, and the sea welcomes the beluga whales back for their summer feasting. More than 3,000 of these wondrous white whales congregate at the mouth of the Churchill River,
and Adventure Worlds motorised rafts and kayaks put you up close and personal with them.
Experience the call of the wild
on Adventure Worlds unique winter experience as you observe wildlife including timber wolves, moose
, caribou and even the elusive cougar in their natural environment.
Wild wolves remain one of the world's most intelligent and elusive creatures. Following centuries of persecution, hunting, and even sanctioned poisoning by trappers, ranchers and intolerant Governments throughout the world - the wilds of northern Canada
remain one of the last strongholds - and even here wolves rightfully tend to be shy of humans and their activities.
An expedition exploring the wild corners of Arctic Canada
- home to polar bears, Arctic foxes, wolves, black bears and many other Arctic fauna should be at the top of any wildlife enthusiasts’ bucket-list. You will fly in to the small town of Churchill
where your days will be spent venturing into this unique region; there will be tundra trekking, drives along the coast in a tundra tracker, kayaking and much more. During your stay at one of the Adventure World lodges do not be alarmed if you are awoken to spot a polar bear which has wandered into the grounds!
