Explore the Great Bear Rainforest with Lindblad Expeditions & National Geographic

Enter the realm of the Spirit Bear

Celebrate Life’s Milestones with 5% off small groups + other extras to make your expedition extra special!

Sail into the narrow, winding fjords of northern British Columbia and enter the domain of the rare Spirit Bear. Also known as a Kermode bear, it is a variant of the North American black bear and can only be found in the pristine wilderness of the Great Bear Rainforest. The forest is roughly the size of Ireland and one of National Geographic’s “Places of a Lifetime.” It stretches 250 miles across the central and northern coast of British Columbia and encompases a quarter of the world’s coastal temperate rainforest. Hike along its salmon-rich streams, enter forests of towering cedars, and see the protected region’s abundant wildlife.

This Alaska itinerary aboard National Geographic Venture will enable you to:

  • Kayak deep into verdant fjords and along wildlife-rich shores
  • Cruise by Zodiac in protected waters in search of grizzly, black, and Kermode bears
  • Experience the silence as you stand among towering, monumental cedars
  • Witness the surprisingly colorful undersea through video shot by an undersea specialist
