That's the Spirit
Visit the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia
This summer, take an international vacation that's easy to get to and full of adventures! British Columbia, Canada, is about to give your vacation photo album an upgrade. Especially if you visit the place that's been called "the last magnificent stand of the great North American Rainforest," and named a Best Trip by National Geographic for its appeal to serious adventurers and casual explorers alike. The Great Bear Rainforest is an untouched wilderness on the northern coast of British Columbia—a place so well preserved it's the only home to the legendary Kermode, or spirit, bear, distinguished by its silvery-white coat and found nowhere else on earth.
Hike, kayak, safari to see wildlife ... this is as off-the-beaten-path as adventures get, yet comfort isn't compromised. Stay and relax in remote wilderness lodges (or even a floating lodge). Hike hidden valleys and kayak secret estuaries in search of the spirit bear, or see grizzly bears, black bears, humpback whales, and orcas. A guided paddle tour through a labyrinth of sublime fjords leads to remote passages in this expansive rainforest. Trust us, you won't need to photoshop any pictures from this trip! British Columbia is Super, Natural.
