Canada & Alaska

Specialist-led bear safaris, from Grizzlies in British Columbia to Brown bears in Katmai and Polar Bears in Alaska

If you're looking for opportunities to see the world's bears up close in their natural habitats then look no further

Drawing on Olly Williams' 30 years of experience traveling with the leading experts in these areas we have put together a set of trips to get you into the right place at the right time

The sheer scale of the large bears is bewildering - the heaviest ever Polar Bear weighed in at over 1000Kg and the even larger Brown Bear at slightly more than that. These are animals whose bulk and power puts the African Cape Buffalo in the shade and makes the big cats look diminuitive.

Over 30 years Olly Williams has explored wilderness from Alaska to British Columbia seeking out the very best specialists for each of the bear species in pursuit of his art. As a result we are now able to offer a series of trips each defined with an explicit focus on seeing - and gaining an understanding of - bears in these areas. 

From tracking Grizzly Bears in the hemlock forests and Alpine wilds of British Columbia to travelling by private expedition vessel to find Brown Bears in the remote Katmai National Park or traveling with our highly experienced Inupiat friend and guide to witness Polar Bears gather on the shores of the Beaufort Sea awaiting the formation of sea ice.

Another Perfect Trip

"Morocco was our fourth trip with Natural High and true to past trips, the itinerary was right on point for our interest and goals, all logistics went off without a hitch and the service throughout the trip was high end. Everyone we worked with were friendly and professional. We had a fantastic time...Thank you!"

Perfect holiday from start to finish.

"Absolutely excellent service. The itinerary was spot on and the whole holiday worked like clockwork. The pre holiday notes and briefing were most useful too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natural High Safaris to others."

Fabulous trip to Tanzania

"This is the second time we have used Natural High Safaris, and again they organised an outstanding holiday for us, this time in Tanzania, combining a safari and beach holiday that was top-notch. Highly recommend them, with huge range of experience and desire to really understand what it is their clients want - and then delivering! Thanks to Catherine Ronan."

An outstanding trip to the Himalayas superbly designed by Natural High.

"Natural High organised a 2 week family trip to Ladakh in August 2018. Andrea Hulme used her local knowledge to design an exciting trip that included a 5 day trek, white water rafting and numerous cultural visits and experiences. Their local partners Shakti were absolutely outstanding and we loved staying in the village houses as opposed to hotels. Their female Ladakhi guide Sonam was really one of the best we have every had on our travels."
