Wild West Coast - GRIZZLY BEAR VIEWING IN TOBA INLET
The Toba Inlet Grizzly bear viewing tour is sure to be a highlight of your visit to the Klahoose Wilderness Resort! You will travel one hour by boat, past the spectacular Toba Inlet waterfalls, followed by a short bus ride into the lush temperate rainforest of the Toba Valley. Here an exhilarating experience awaits you.
You will have an opportunity of a lifetime to safely view Grizzly bears from fixed bear viewing platforms situated alongside the glacier blue waters of the Klite River. The Klahoose Indigenous guides, trained by the Commercial Bear Viewing Association, will get you as close to the Grizzly bears as possible, while respecting their natural habitat. This is truly an amazing spectacle that only a select few have the privilege of seeing.
