Canadian Rockies Wildlife Spotting

Headed to western Canada? Here’s some of the wildlife you might see along the coast, in the Canadian Rockies and in between.

Canada is more than just the Great White North. From coast to coast, our neighbor to the north offers unparalleled wildlife-watching opportunities across its range of biomes, from Arctic fringe to temperate boreal forest to rolling prairies. From the gorgeous Pacific Ocean to the majestic Canadian Rockies, British Columbia and Alberta are packed with a range of environments that boast a host of creatures large and small. From bears and whales near Vancouver to beavers and caribou near Banff, the wildlife experiences in western Canada are as vast as the wilderness.

Check out the infographic below to find out what kind of animals you might spy on a trip between the coast and the Canadian Rockies, and where.

I love to suggest Italy and Spain because of the culture and the flair of the people–their fashions, language and way of life. They take time to enjoy life's pleasures. When you're there, you feel it, too.
