Grizzlies of the Khutzeymateen Photo Op Photo Tour 2021
ABOUT THIS TRIP:
The Khutzeymateen Grizzly Sanctuary is Canada’s only Grizzly Bear sanctuary and is located at the tip of a long, remote inlet on the northern coast of British Columbia. Much of the area is closed to the public – and only two licensed guides are allowed to lead very small groups into the heart of the The Khutzeymateen Estuary.
The sanctuary is home to about 50 resident Grizzly Bears, with many more passing through during the year. This remote piece of wilderness is set within one of the planet’s few remaining completely intact temperate rainforests and offers a stunning backdrop to observe and photograph wild Grizzlies as they interact with one another. Be one of under 200 people annually who get the opportunity for this intimate experience of sharing the lives of the Grizzlies of the Khutzeymateen.
This photo tour is the “lighter” version of our Khutzeymateen trips. This “photo-op” style photo tour offers a reduced instructional component (no full day of instruction before the trip) but with 4 full days photographing the Grizzlies of the Khutzeymateen. It is geared toward photographers who primarily want access to the area, the bears, and the overall experience in a non-crowded environment (all the photo tours are limited to 6 individuals to
ensure everyone has good shooting angles) and who may not have the time for the longer instructional photo tour.

A bear guide, photography guide, and all sanctuary and conservancy fees are also included.
