Grizzly-bear watching is a bucket-list activity for many visitors to Canada. The only thing more incredible than seeing one of these awe-inspiring creatures in their natural habitat — while on an organized tour with an experienced guide, of course — is seeing a grizzly mom with her cubs. 
Most of Canada's 25,000 grizzlies are found in British Columbia, with 15,000 bears located close to the Pacific, around salmon spawning grounds. The remaining bears live in the Rocky Mountains of western Alberta, the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, or northern Manitoba.
