British Columbia

The last great forest of the North

The curve of coastline from Alaska down to British Columbia remains one of the last great wildernesses of America. These northernmost territories are home to some of the oldest and largest trees on earth and sailing through its forests can dwarf even the biggest yacht.

This raw landscape in Canada’s westernmost province is one that boasts gargantuan proportions and an abundance of natural beauty. This is the home of cougars, coastal wolves, and the legendary ‘spirit’ bear – a unique subspecies where one in ten cubs are born with a vanilla-white coat.

Your captain will navigate through a maze of islands, islets, fjords and channels to pods of breaching humpback whales feasting on the run of Canadian salmon. In the protected coastal parks, you can find secluded spots away from anglers to fish amongst millions of chinook, halibut, rockfish and lingcod.

The Great Bear Rainforest, which has remained unchanged for thousands of years, is the last tract of temperate rainforest of this size in the world. Here towering cliffs and forests rise from the water’s edge and carpet the landscape in a resplendent green.

Our world-famous guides will lead you into its rich interior to kayak along cold, misty tributaries dotted with grizzly bears or introduce you to the land’s indigenous First Nations people.
