What is a River Safari?
The RIVER SAFARI is an unforgettable and awe-inspiring one hour ride through Grizzly Bear Valley, right in the heart of the world’s only inland temperate rainforest!
Located in the picturesque Monashee Mountains of British Columbia, Canada, the RIVER SAFARI is an activity that both the seasoned adventurer and the not-so-daring can both enjoy. That’s right! We’ve made our Safaris accessible to all ages and abilities.
Our custom built, eco-friendly boats will voyage through the mountains’ glaciers & jade-colored waters in search of bear, moose, eagle and osprey, to name only a few of the magnificent creatures we see during this breathtaking wilderness experience!
What Should I Expect?
As you’re traveling up small rivers, gliding over water only inches deep and going where it seems no boat has gone before, you’re sure to fall witness to the active wildlife always seen on our riverbanks.
Observing the animals in their natural environment, without the constraints of gates and cages, is just another incredible encounter you’ll have as you journey through your hour on the RIVER SAFARI.
In addition to an information-packed narrative, our exceptional guides will point out the wildlife, the glaciers and the many waterfalls toppling from the snow-capped mountains only meters from our boats.
