Coordinates : 55.930212,-130.036154 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : In the park you can find daily grizzly bears fishing for salmon, also very well known are the sea eagles. There are also many ospreys and other birds, including hummingbirds, kingfishers, ducks. Even the wolves, though more rarely, they come to feed on salmon.

Recommended equipment : 300mm is good enough for the Bears (better zoom, are very close), while mm are not enough for the birds. We recommend optical light and weather sealed body really, because the weather is always bad (rain ALWAYS).

Best months : The best period is from July to August, quamdo salmon have completed their lifts and grizzly feast on them every day.

How to get there : In fact, the park is in effect in Alaska, to Hyder, but the only way comes from Canada ... It also passes the border several times a day, practically without controls, because once in the States ... there is no way to go back to Canada. To reach the Tongass National Park is only one road, about 300 km north of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, direction Steward, unless you want to get from the north, from the Alaska highway.

Visits : There is a long pier along the river, with an entrance fee, where there are constantly ranger to avoid problems with the grizzly. All around, however, is free, beautiful road (unpaved and difficult with the rain) leading to a huge glacier from above.

Notes : That area of ??the world is truly spectacular. Going from here you can head down along the east coast of Canada, on Vancouver Island ferry and enjoy the spectacle of more than 10 species of marine mammals (whales, whales, seals, dolphins, sea lions and so on and so forth ). During his last visit in those areas has counted 53 meetings "road" with brown bears and grizzlies, more elk, bison, deer and lynx. Unique.
