Chilcotin Guest Ranch Holidays Grizzly bear viewing, British Columbia
Grizzly bears are the symbol of the wilderness. View these awesome animals in their natural habitat as they progress through the seasons. In the spring, the grizzly bears congregate in the low meadows during breeding season. Then during the summer, bear-viewing goes into the sub-alpine, examine the bear territory marker trees, explore their dens and collect data for the Chilcotin Grizzly Study.

Ranch based - 7 days
You leave early in the morning to catch the Grizzlies feeding on the first fresh shoots and grasses of the spring. This is the time when the bear are re-establishing territories, and it is the start of the breeding season. Sightings and photographic opportunities are available throughout the day. Collecting hair samples, documenting sightings and tracks, and studying bear habitat and a winter den are all part of the experience. Viewing is done by a combination of foot and vehicle, returning nightly to Ranch.
Camp based - 7 day
Trails travelled by Grizzly bear through the mountains are marked with rub trees or territory markers. We collect the hair from these trees, and GPS their locations for subsequent mapping and analyses. The alpine meadows provide favoured summer feeding ranges, and open areas allow for excellent sightings and photographic opportunities. Viewing is done by foot or by horse, returning nightly to camp(s).
7-day pack horse viewing - June - September. Experienced riders only. First and last nights at the Lodge sandwiched with an alpine camp. Ride a sturdy Cayuse horse on trails travelled by bears through the mountains and open alpine feeding grounds, with excellent sighting and photographic opportunities. You will learn lots about the habits and habitats of the grizzly.
