The Great Bear Rainforest is the largest intact temperate rainforest in the world. This 19 day expedition is designed for the intermediate to advanced paddler who wishes to explore very remote wild locations. The one-way 400km journey goes truly off the beaten track, with other experienced paddlers and 2 highly experienced guides. This type of expedition is aimed at guests seeking adventure, learning and challenges not normally offered on the average guided tour.
The Great Bear Rainforest is the only place in the world where you can see the Kermode (Spirit) Bear, a subspecies of black bear with white fur. The waters teem with whales, otters, dolphins and sea lions while wolves, black bears, Kermode bears, grizzly bears and eagles roam in the lush forests. This beautifully raw, rugged coast offers jaw dropping scenery and a rich First Nations culture. We plan to explore some of the remotest and most beautiful offshore islands such as the Goose Island Group. We will not see much human presence along our journey for a pure wilderness experience. SKILS highly qualified and experienced guides ran this trip in 2018 - the campsites marked are where we camped in 2018, although this may vary in 2019, depending on weather and the needs of the group.
