BEAR WATCHING HOLIDAYS

Bears are many people’s favourite mammal. They are immensely strong and have unpredictable temperaments, yet inspire great affection in most of us. The Naturetrek programme includes a number of specially designed bear watching holidays which employ local expertise to provide clients with wonderful opportunities to see their favourite mammals.

NATURETREK BEAR WATCHING HOLIDAYS

Why choose Naturetrek’s bear tours?

Most species of bear are retiring in habit and are rarely seen during the day. However, a prodigious appetite leads many species to gather seasonally in big numbers, which makes them far easier to watch!  Naturetrek’s bear tours utilise our knowledge of bear movements to maximise viewing opportunities.

Our bear tour groups are limited in size and accompanied by Naturetrek naturalist leaders, and are usually assisted by resident experts.

Although focused on bear watching, all Naturetrek bear tours offer many opportunities to observe the other wildlife of the area.

We offer short break trips to Sweden or Finland, and longer bear tours in search of Grizzly Bears in Canada and Polar Bears in Spitsbergen.

Where can I see bears?

Our dedicated bear tours selection includes:

Is it possible to see bears on other Naturetrek tours?

Yes. While not specifically searching for bears, we have had sightings of Sloth Bears on Indian and Sri Lankan tours, and Brown Bears on our Kamchatka cruise and many European tours.

But we offer so much more!

Our bear tours specialist recommends …

Naturetrek Bear Tours Specialist - Paul Marshall"In Europe one of the most reliable places to see the European Brown Bear is northern Finland, where it is possible possible to get up-close views from hides. Grizzly Bears catching Salmon in western Canada is undoubtedly one of the greatest of natural history thrills. But for the ultimate in bear watching experiences, and my personal favourite, it has to be a trip to the Arctic to watch Polar Bears"
