My trip to Grizzly Bear Ranch was the highlight of my trip to Canada and was very special and in memory of my sister who wanted to "see the bears catch salmon", but unfortunately passed away before she was able to go. Julius and Kristin are the most gracious of hosts and the well-being and safety of the guests is of the highest priority. Our guides Matt and Lily were wonderful ambassadors for Canada; patient, lovely sense of humour and very knowledgeable. Early morning cups of coffee followed by a drive to see the animals and the environment - and we always did see something exciting; bald headed eagle, coyote catching fish and yes, bears catching salmon! It was so lovely to see the animals in their natural habitat and all credit to Julius and Kristin for being so passionate about conservation and their little patch of heaven and teaching us so much about the bears and their behaviour. The days were full and well organised with a pleasing variety of activities. Meals were wonderful - thank you Kristin! And thank you Julius for allowing me to name one of the young bears after my sister. I will always remember this beautiful place and holiday with a smile in my heart. Would love to go back again some day.
