Nature is calling from British Columbia

Nature is calling from British Columbia

This spring, wildlife and nature enthusiasts can head to British Columbia and go in search of grizzlies in the lush rainforests, spot whales off the coast of Vancouver Island, and see salmon swimming in Campbell River

Book this once-in–a-lifetime ten-day wildlife tour into the heart of British Columbia’s rugged landscape for this June from only £2,179 per person with Canadian Sky. Spend the first two nights taking in the city sights in Vancouver, before being transported across the Strait of Georgia past the rugged coastline and tranquil beaches of the Gulf Islands to Vancouver Islands on a B.C. Ferries cruise.  The next six nights are spent getting close to British Columbia’s native animals in their natural habitats.

From Victoria, launch into the Pacific aboard a Zodiac powerboat to see orca, minke and grey whales, seals and porpoises. On the drive from Victoria to Tofino, explore the Pacific Rim National Park and go in search of the Pacific grey whale, sea lions and puffins.

Drive from Tofino to Campbell River, ‘the Salmon Capital of the World’, and see up to six species of salmon.

Fly in by floatplane from Campbell River to the isolated Knight Inlet Lodge, not accessible by road, to explore the lush West Coast rainforests and see grizzly bears doing a spot of fishing.

Be completely immersed in nature and see a wide variety of Canada’s animals and bird life including loons, bald eagles, Canada geese, deer and black bears on the drive back to Vancouver along the Coast Mountain Range.

The ten-day trip costs from £2,179 per person based on travel in June 2014, including return flights from London Gatwick to Vancouver with Direct Air Transat, eight nights’ accommodation and economy car hire.
