Grand American Adventures wildlife tours focus on exploring the great outdoors and getting close to the indigenous wildlife of the Americas. Encounter bison, moose, wolf and elk in the USA; search for bears and whales in Canada and Alaska; or spot monkeys, toucans and sloth in Central and South America.
Our wildlife tours have been developed to maximise the chances of seeing as much wildlife as possible and will include activities or specific locations with this aim in mind. Whether it's a wolf tracking excursion in Yellowstone with an expert guide, a float plane trip into the Alaskan wilderness to spot bears or a cruise around Vancouver Island to look for whales and porpoises, our itineraries are designed give you the best chance for those close encounters.
Wildlife tours will take you further off the beaten track, spending more time in key locations where animal spottings are more frequent and generally where there are less people and travellers. Our tour leaders are also in contact with the National Park Rangers and local experts to understand the latest information on recent sightings. Some wildlife tours simply visit destinations that are renowned for their abundance of flora, fauna and nature where you can expect to see an array of wildlife.
