Great Bear Rainforest is Canada’s largest coastal temperate rainforest, two million hectares in size. Great efforts are being made to protect this area which is home to an impressive grizzly bear population, as well as ancient trees over a millennia old. Sailing off the coast of this special tract of land offers views of waterfalls, fjords, and other striking features only visible from the water. You might even see a white Kermode bear, or Spirit bear, a rare species endemic to the region.
