Welcome to Great Bear Rainforest!

The Great Bear Rainforest is one of the largest temperate rainforests left on the planet, a total of 18,000 sq. km (6, 950 sq. mi) of land and sea. It is comprised of some of the oldest and largest trees in the world, sheltering coves and coastlines, which return the favour in the form of winds and rain created by the ocean's currents. In 2006, loggers, First Nations peoples and environmental groups came together to ensure the protection of the biodiversity of the thousands of species that have made the land home. The forest takes its name from its most mystic resident, the Kermode, or "spirit" bear, a unique white subspecies of the black bear whose territory ranges from Prince Rupert and Stewart to the north, Hazelton to the east, and Kitimat and Bella Coola to the south

Spot the Kermode, grizzly bears, black bears, cougars, wolves, foxes and many more fascinating animals on nature tours and hikes, and the cool waters provide some of the finest sport fishing opportunities in Canada. Throughout the summer sailboats silently skirt the waves, and kayakers slip along the rarely-explored coastline.
