North America is blessed with huge diversity of ecosystems and therefore wildlife. From remote temperate rainforests to alpine and arctic tundra, deep coniferous forests to massive coastal fjords, IWA offers the best of wildlife destinations and natural history travel.
For an exceptional holiday in Canada, we offer whale watching as well as other wildlife viewing and photography opportunities.
Newfoundland is often overlooked as a destination when choosing from the wide variety of tours suitable for a holiday in Canada, but it is a fantastic option.
Whales abound here; at least six different species are commonly seen. Huge seabird colonies cover the precipitous cliffs, and enormous icebergs from Greenland frequently ground just off the coast. Inland you'll find a landscape of sublime beauty with fox, moose, caribou, black bears, not to mention the incomparable Gros Morne National Park. Since it is the easternmost prominence of North America, Newfoundland offers the fascinating distinction of the earliest European settlement in North America, hundreds of years before Columbus: L'Anse aux Meadows, a Viking settlement that thrived for years before disappearing.
We offer three of the best tours Newfoundland can offer: The Viking Trail, Whale Watching in Depth and the Newfoundland Adventure. Any can be taken separately or together. Trips are offered June through September.

Each summer and fall, the polar bears gather on the western shore of Hudson's Bay for their annual seal hunt. By late November, the bay freezes and the bears are off on the ice to locate seals. These trips have been featured on major TV networks such as NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, CNN and more.
For decades, International Wildlife Adventures has been offering polar bear tours tours to see these majestic creatures in their native habitat. In fact, we pioneered the development of Churchill polar bear tours, and offer more choices and styles of excursions than any other company in the world.
