Itinerary Details

Meet your guide for your morning departure and drive through the park. Stop in multiple places to take in the scenery and for the possibility of spotting wildlife.

Equipped with a powerful spotting scope to bring the wildlife in close, listen as your guide interprets the behavior of the various wildlife and explains how the animals fit into the Chikoot’s complex ecosystem.

In May, June and July, the wildflowers in the park are at their peak and eagles are busy caring for their young in the nest. Beginning in late July, the river fills with migrating salmon while brown bears come down to the river’s edge to feed. As the number of salmon in the river increases, the likelihood of seeing bears along the river increases. Bears are frequently spotted early August through late September.

The tour concludes back at the departure point. A minimum of two people is required...
