BC's Great Bear Rainforest is quite simply the largest piece of intact temperate rainforest left on the planet.

 

It is here that the Kitasoo/Xai’xais First Nation has lived since time immemorial, along with a very special creature they call the spirit bear.

 On this tour, stay in the village of Klemtu and witness these beautiful bears.
