Some destinations offer bear-watching excursions, but Vancouver ups the ante: here, you can enjoy an intimate breakfast with Grouse Mountain's furriest friends. The attraction's Breakfast with the Bears invites guests to get an early start while visiting resident grizzlies Grinder and Coola as they enjoy their morning feeding. (Grinder and Coola were rescued as cubs and have lived on Grouse Mountain ever since). The experience also includes admission to Grouse Mountain, a gourmet hot breakfast, and the opportunity to learn about bear conservation and grizzly habits. Offered on select days during summer season (May to September). www.grousemountain.com
