Loved the trip! The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is because I would have liked him to hover for ten seconds or so to frame photos. We saw about 12 bears. One with two cubs and one with three.

Several tours per day. $550 CAD/ person but needs minimum of 2-3 passengers to fly. Weather dependent so flights may be mover earlier or later or even cancelled.
