Experience Whistler like you never thought possible with a Whistler Bear Viewing Tour. Walk among towering old-growth hemlocks, pristine alpine meadows, and stunning glacial peaks in search of Whistler’s true locals. Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains boast acres and acres of habitat for up to 70 Whistler bears and cubs every year. Hop aboard a comfortable 4x4 vehicle and relax as your guide navigates through endless trails and cat tracks, visiting active feeding sites, daybeds, and dens used for hibernation during the harsh winter months. Be sure to keep an eye out for other mountain residents, like Coastal Mountain black-tailed deer, Coyote, Ruffed grouse, Red-tailed hawks, Barred and Great Horned owls, and Western Hoary marmots.
