We’re very glad we came to see this even though it’s about 2.5 hours from where we were staying near St-Johns. You’re driven to the middle of the forest and then you go to view the bears from a large platform. Don’t worry about getting a good seat or place on the platform because it’s very big and everybody moves... More

We saw 3 mama bears and 4 cubs up close, plus papa bear in the distance. The guide was very informative and entertaining, with a great (bilingual) sense of humor. The cubs, especially, were incredibly entertaining, going in and out of logs searching for food. This is a great attraction everyone should see while visiting the area. (It would be... More

The entire experience was fantastic. We saw 13 bears and Cubs. The owners are wonderful and add to the amazing experience. Even the "tree house" was great. I highly recommend this for adults and children alike. You won't be disappointed.

There are no words to describe this attraction. It's perfect in every way. There's a 99% chance that you are going to see black bears. The owners are excellent, they are like family. No visit to New Brunswick is complete without a visit to the BEARS!!! Extremely highly recommended!!!

Such a privalege to be able to share these bear,s home in the woodlands of New Brunswick for just a few hours. With the bears in their natural surroundings and us humans in our "cages" made a very pleasant change. We saw 10 black bears mainly from different families. Our guide host Richard and his wife Vivienne not only handled... More

This was a wonderful tour. Richard and Vivianne are wonderful people who made us fell so comfortable and welcoming. Being surrounded by so many bears from little cubs to 'teenage' bears and big mama bears was incredible. We watched them for 2 hours for the tree house. A must see when in the area.

We saw around 14 bears during our trip, all wild. It was great to see a mother and her young cubs appearing from the forest and crossing the stream, or young bears getting jumpy and climbing a tree. Richard and his wife were great, the stories made the experience even more interesting. All the bears come and go as they... More
