Alaska is the USA’s largest and least populated state. It is a land of snow-capped mountains, towering glaciers, sparkling fjords, endless forests and salmon-filled rivers. Famed for its grizzlies, it is also home to black bear, moose, deer, wolf, lynx and fox in addition to whales, dolphins, seals, otters and more than 470 bird species.
Canada contains some of the world’s greatest untamed lands. A vast wilderness that is the last stronghold of the black, brown (or grizzly), and polar bear, where it is undoubtedly the best place to see them, the nutrient rich waters off the coasts of Newfoundland and British Columbia also attract whales and dolphins a-plenty.
The American state of Wyoming is in the north of this enormous continent and experiences some of the most extreme climatic conditions. These have, in turn, shaped the scenery of its national parks into some of the most dramatic wilderness areas for viewing abundant wildlife, including grizzly bear, black bear, elk and grey wolf.
