Bear Viewing Tour Information

A visit to the Coast Mountains is not complete without this tour. Experience the wildlife, vegetation, glaciers and rainforests of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains while looking out for some of the population of up to 70 black bears and cubs, including 17 mothers, that have adapted to feeding, mating, and hibernating amongst ski area habitats.

Travel in a comfortable 4x4 vehicle through forests, meadows and streams. Visit bear dens and wander through pristine alpine meadows and old growth Western Hemlock forests. Learn how conservation and enhancement initiatives help to sustain healthy populations, and how mountain resorts are continually redesigning recreational experiences to ensure a sustainable future for wildlife.

As many other wildlife share the same habitats, you may also see Coastal Mountain black-tailed deer, Coyote, Ruffed grouse, Red-tailed hawks, Barred and Great Horned owls, and Western Hoary marmots.
