Wildlife Holidays in North America

The diverse terrain of North America is a habitat for a huge variety of wildlife. The climate is as varied as the landscape and provides a haven for migrating birds, marine wildlife and land mammals.

From the Far North of Alaska to the Deep South there is a wealth of national and provincial parks teeming with life. Although you can see a huge number of creatures on your travels the most popular we have highlighted below.


Bears

Can be seen in May, with young cubs, to September, gorging on salmon ready for the Winter. There are many areas to view the different species but British Columbia, Alberta and Alaska are prime sites for bear watching. Polar Bear adventures can be taken in Churchill, Manitoba and the rare "spirit bear" or Kermode Bear can only be found in Canada.

Birdwatching  

Many species from marine birds to songbirds can be found in North America. Prime viewing throughout but outstanding spots are Newfoundland, Alaska, Texas and Arizona.

Whales

Best time to view whales is from June to September. Small ship cruising holidays are an excellent way to see these magnificent creatures but there are many excursions that can be taken. Among the best areas for viewing are Bay of Fundy, Gulf of St Lawrence, Vancouver Island, Newfoundland, Alaska and California.
