Okay, this trip is fairly pricey. But it is totally worth it.
Michael Allen is Whistler's bear man, he has been watching the bears for 20 years and knows where they like to hang out. We saw 8 different bears including 2 cubs on our trip.
It's surprising how close you can get to them. Michael obviously knows not to scare them, but the bears are just like 'okay, its you again, with some tourists'.
You can see bears around Whistler and on the edge of the road from Vancouver fairly frequently, but nothing beats seeing them high up on Whistler or Blackcomb Mountains.
Michael will say he is not an expert on bears, but all he means is that he has no official qualification. He knows absolutely loads about them.
The pic below was taken our trip, I've got loads just as good as this one.
If you go to Whistler and don't do this trip then you'll regret it
