Duration: 4 hours
Schedule: 11:00 a.m.
Season: June 01 to Oct. 10
Departing from: St-Aimé-des-Lacs

Venture into the backcountry of Charlevoix with the "bear whisperer" to discover a well-known inhabitant of the Quebec forest, the black bear.

Upon your arrival you will meet your trapper-guide, a wildlife enthusiast who can teach you all about the habitat and habits of the black bear.

Then from the shelter of a viewing tower, in complete safety and protected from the elements, you will be able to observe and photograph this impressive mammal from a distance of less than 20 metres. 

It is always spectacular to witness the strength, agility, ingeniousness and dexterity that the bear displays in his natural habitat.

This authentic experience will be among the highlights of your trip to Canada!

No English spoken here. Tour is completely in French so do not expect any English. Even with that, the experience is fantastic!

Nice experience
