Observation de l'ours noir Enjoy the outdoors - Learn


COVID-19 - This business will be back for 2022 season.

With a little luck, black bears can usually be viewed around sunset from June until October. One of our guides will lead you to Bear Valley. Once there, you can watch the bears up close from a blind designed to protect you from the bears and mosquitoes. Throughout the whole experience, our informative guides will tell you all about black bears' behaviours, lives, reproduction, gestation, hibernation and biology. Watching the bears from a close distance is a fascinating experience. You will also learn what you should do if you ever meet a bear in the wild. The excursion takes around 70 minutes. Successful sightings over 95% of the time. An unforgettable experience!
