With more moose than people and with national parks larger than some of the other states in the USA, Alaska is arguably the last great wilderness in North America. From the grizzly bears of Katmai and the glaciers of Prince William Sound, to the iconic peak of Denali and the secretive wildlife of the northern coast, Alaska is also a wilderness like no other.

Whales & Bears of British Columbia
British Columbia is home to some of the finest bear watching and whale-watching anywhere on earth. Blessed with the largest remaining tract of coastal temperate rainforest, mountains and salmon-rich rivers, brown, black and spirit bears all call this area of Canada home. The seas are home to humpback, grey, minke and orca whales as well as otters, seals and sealions. Enjoy beautiful imagery and inspirational stories taken from Chris’s first-hand experiences in this stunning destination.
