What our Canada experts say...

Canada Expert Laura

Farewell Harbour Lodge By Laura

The lodge offers fantastic opportunities to view bears in their natural environment.  The lodge is self-contained with all excursions taking place away from the lodge itself. The excursions and viewings are all completely non-intrusive and the guides are so knowledgeable and each specialise or have interest in a particular field whether its cultural, biological or ecological.
