Tour description provided by Viator

Animal lovers, don't miss your chance to discover the grizzly bear! Leaving Banff behind, you'll take a ride in a gondola for a great view of grizzly country, then visit the grizzly refuge where you can observe an orphaned grizzly bear as it romps and plays in a natural bear habitat.

Visit the orphaned grizzly bear Boo, as he romps and plays in his natural habitat. Your guided sightseeing tour to the Grizzly Bear Refuge also includes stops at Emerald Lake, Takakkaw Falls and Kicking Horse Canyon.

Ride the gondola at Kicking Horse Mountain for an eagle's eye view of grizzly country, walk the summit trails and dine on a gourmet lunch at Canada's highest restaurant. Experience an up-close visit with Boo, the resident bear of the refuge.
