This is an adventure in bear country that you will not soon forget! We offer a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a comfortable isolated campground in Taku, an uninhabited region in northern British Columbia. The camp is only accessible by helicopter from the small village of Atlin, situated a few kilometres from Whitehorse (Yukon).
Your fascination with grizzly bear country is guaranteed. The camp where you be spending your stay is set along the river where the Pacific salmon run takes place every summer. This natural pantry attracts all the grizzlies in the region, where they congregate with other hungry visitors, like bald eagles and the elusive grey wolf. Under the supervision of a professional guide specialized in wild environments, you will be able to observe and photograph these bears fishing for salmon in the river.
