Meet Boo at the Grizzly Bear Refuge! Seeing a bear in the flesh is a thrilling moment that will stay with you long after you’ve left the mountains.

Boo is a grizzly bear with paws the size of hubcaps, a mouth full of sharp teeth and enormous muscles moving beneath his shaggy fur. He saunters slowly through his 20-acre habitat, allowing you to watch him explore, hunt and forage just like his wild cousins. You’ll also hear his personal story and learn about grizzly bear behaviour during your visit to the largest enclosed grizzly bear habitat in the world.

The tour includes stops at the stunning Emerald Lake, Natural Bridge, and the Takakkaw Falls. We'll also take a gondola ride up to the top of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Enjoy a gourmet lunch and a spectacular view of the Canadian Rockies at Canada’s highest restaurant.This tour has a guaranteed grizzly bear sighting or your next tour is free*.
