Great Bear Rainforest

On the remote Pacific shores of Canada lies earth’s largest coastal temperate rainforest, an almost fairy-tale-like chain of granite domes and thickly forested islands, spiked with ancient red cedar trees, carved through by crystal-clear, salmon-rich rivers and bursting with one-of-a-kind natural phenomena.

This primeval land hosts not only some of the world’s most enchanting animals, but also a rare white bear that is neither polar bear nor albino but a “spirit bear,” a black bear with a vanilla coat so mystically beautiful it is revered by the First Nations people who have lived among the bears and protected them for millennia.
