Forget yoga retreats and kombucha. Did you know what you, your clients, or in fact, every human, needs? British Columbia! Known as The BC Effect, a trip to British Columbia brings you closer to nature, peace, and your true self. In partnership with Adventure World, we bring you the best of BC’s wild ways.
The spectacular landscape and varied wildlife of British Columbia are the tonics we all need during these unfamiliar times. When you witness breaching whales, bighorn sheep, and elusive, rare bears in the wild, you are nothing but present and living in the moment. How could you not be?
Witnessing wildlife rewires you. The you without jobs, bills, schedules, without pressure. Thanks to Adventure World, in partnership with Destination BC, the opportunities for purpose-driven conscious travel affords the chance to find yourself again. Wild you, untamed you.
How Wildlife Connects You
In a destination as lush, remote, rugged, and pristine as British Columbia, connecting to true, wild you has never been easier. Meaningful travel is a guide, not a marketing gimmick in BC, where the wildlife-filled landscape touches the soul and reconnects every visitor to what’s important in life.
And when we say wildlife-filled, we mean it! Mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and marmots roaming BC’s craggy mountain ranges. Humpbacks, orcas, porpoises, and dolphins navigate the frigid waters of the Salish Sea. The rare and elusive Kermode (Spirit) bear wanders the Great Bear Rainforest, along with grizzlies, brown bears, caribou, wolves, and moose.
With many protected areas across British Columbia, the destination offers visitors its rich and varied eco-system up for observation and reflection. And with that comes introspection. For those that allow it, a trip to BC is truly life-changing.

Grizzlies of the Great Bear Rainforest

It’ll be a tough call as to whether you’ll consider the wildlife excursions or your sustainable floating lodge accommodation as your most memorable tour moments. Knight Inlet Lodge is conservation-focused and a long-term sponsor of the Grizzly Bear ID Program. This ground-breaking project is dedicated to non-invasive ways to monitor, identify, and protect the local wildlife.
Touring highlights include world-class bear viewing trips, guided wildlife walks, marine-focused excursions, and adventure activities like kayaking. All designed to immerse you into everything this region has to offer.
Island Wildlife & Connection
On this 11-day Vancouver Islands tailor-made trip, you’ll connect to the rugged wilderness of the west coast.
Led by your First Nations tour guide, explore the temperate rainforests searching for grizzly bears catching their salmon supper. Off the rocky coastline, witness migrating whales, passing orcas, playful dolphins, and opportunistic seals ply the open seas aboard a dedicated whale-watching vessel. Be sure to look up for the majestic bald eagles soaring in search of prey.
During two unforgettable nights, deepen your cultural knowledge at the First Nation’s owned Kwa’lilas Hotel in Port Hardy.
