Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! Whistler Blackcomb is home to many species of flora and fauna including Whistler’s famous black bears and cubs. Catching a glimpse of a bear in Whistler is no strange occurrence. You can spot black bears all around the resort during the summer months, but the best way is to go on a Whistler Blackcomb Bear Viewing Tour.

Whistler Black Bears

Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains are home to over 50 black bears and cubs that have adapted to life within the ski area habitats. Bear Viewing Tours give you the opportunity to visit bear dens, experience the wildlife, and soak in the beautiful alpine landscape.

The group of black bears on Whistler Blackcomb are the only population in British Columbia to have been recorded and studied for over two decades. You can learn about the conservation efforts and initiatives put in place to help sustain healthy populations of black bears in the area.

Whistler Bear Tours

The tour will have you travelling in a comfortable 4x4 vehicle through crisscrossing ski area roads that traverse the largest concentration of mother bear ranges in the area. Trips will vary in location throughout the year as bear feeding patterns shift from valley bottom to higher mountain elevations. You can explore different hidden scenic alpine ecosystems and natural habitats at any time of the summer.

Bear viewing tours are a truly unique outdoor activity for you to do while you’re in Whistler!
