    A TRIP TO THE GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST

    Watch the video at the bottom of the page for a preview of what you will experience on this incredible trip!

    Cruise through British Columbia’s miraculous Great Bear Rainforest. See rare wildlife including whales, grizzlies, Spirit Bears, and sea wolves, and meet the Indigenous stewards of the land who have lived there since time immemorial.

    Prepare for dazzling sunny days and rain-drenched mornings as you witness the brutal, inspiring journey of salmon upstream.

    Your reward will cover all costs once on board The Island Roamer, a luxury sailboat that will take you into a wilderness so breathtaking it will change the way you see the world.

    Passengers will be part of a group of 13, and must cover their own trip to Bella Bella, B.C. where National Observer will be waiting.

    This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but if you are unable to attend in person, consider sending one of our reporters or filmmakers with your reward instead. They will produce in-depth, multimedia journalism from the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, a place like nowhere else on Earth.
