The Pacific Coast of British Columbia is home to the world’s only white coloured black bears. The spirit bear or white bear is thought to be a genetic variation of the black bear that roams throughout British Columbia. Nestled in a remote archipelago of small islands protected from the wild Pacific, Klemtu, home to Spirit Bear Lodge, is positioned to offer unparalleled access to some of the best grizzly and spirit bear viewing in the region.
