HAIDA GWAII ARCHIPELAGO – ISLANDS AT THE EDGE
This 9-day expedition is dedicated to exploring and learning about the ecosystems, wildlife, and cultural heritage of Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, Haida Heritage Site, and National Marine Conservation Area. We will visit ancient Haida villages and learn about their histories and people from the Haida Watchmen who protect them. Most famous is SGang Gwaay Llnagaay, abandoned in the late 19th century and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981. Here, a collection of haunting mortuary poles and wooden house remains stand testament to the traditional ways of the Haida Nation.
GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST – SALMON, BEARS, WHALES, AND WOLVES
The Great Bear Rainforest extends from northern Vancouver Island to the BC-Alaska border and represents one of the largest remaining intact coastal temperate forests in the world. This 9-day expedition is dedicated to observing, photographing, and learning about the abundant top predators of the Great Bear Rainforest, including grizzly bears, black bears, the iconic “Spirit” bear, and coastal wolves. We will visit bear viewing stands operated by local First Nations where we will have excellent opportunities to observe both Spirit bears and black bears fishing for salmon.
