Bear Viewing Safari Details A guide will pick you up and drop you off at your accommodations or another convenient location in Whistler. There are several photographic points of interest where you will get out of the vehicle so wear appropriate footwear and layered clothing as temperatures can change quickly in the mountains. Each vehicle is equipped with insect repellant or you may bring your own. All ages welcome, booster seats are available. Infant car seats must be supplied and installed by the guest. While our guides are dedicated to tracking bears throughout the season’s climatic conditions and food supplies can, from time to time, limit our viewing opportunities. Bear Viewing Safari Information Experience the Whistler Olympic Park like it’s your own private oasis as you explore the 2010 Legacy Trail network. Immerse yourself in a pristine, intact ecosystem in which mother bears, cubs, and males searching for mates, roam freely and untagged.
