Our favourite wildlife holidays
Famed through history thanks to Paddington, Pooh, Rupert and Yogi, Bears are considered solitary animals. However, for those that have had the opportunity to explore Alaska during the Salmon run, or Wrangel Island in high Arctic summer, this myth would be dispelled by the mass of bears that can be seen.
In total, there are eight species of bear – American black, polar, giant panda, Asiatic black, sloth bears, sun bears, spectacled bears and brown bears, all located in varying regions from China to Canada. Steppes Travel has bear watching holidays and bear tours that can take you to see any of these species.
