Timing Canada Wildlife Tours

Adventure vacations in Canada operate primarily in the northern hemisphere’s spring, summer and fall. Plan your trip to see polar bears in Canada for peak wildlife migrations in October or November. For a Canada adventure tour in the High Arctic, the summer months are the only option, for milder weather. And for great bear rainforest tourism, or if you are seeking a coastal cruise, spring and fall offer the most availability since the ships position to/from Alaska and the Arctic regions.

Note that the climate data referenced above is for Vancouver and therefore representative of a west coast Canada trip. Temperatures for an eastern Canada adventure, around Newfoundland, are cooler but have less average rainfall.
