Also called the Inside Passage, the Great Bear Rainforest is a land of fjords, mountains, rainforests and great river estuaries. Here, you can view grizzly bears, the mysterious white Spirit Bear, whales and, if you're lucky, wolves. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., calls it “the last stand of the great North American rainforest.”
