Come Visit a Taiga!

Be whisked away into a wonderland of the north!

The Weather's Great in the Spring!!!

Winter, spring, summer, or fall? Each season is so different in the taiga. Visiting during the spring the temperatures will only require a light jacket if anything and the plants are just coming into bloom. Meanwhile visiting during the winter the temperatures all for heavy jackets, ski pants, gloves, and hats and the plants and animals have gone away for a while. Rainfall isn't too much of an issue during these seasons, unlike summer. Meanwhile fall is just a bit too short for anyone to really enjoy, but if you're into that season then feel free to come! If you are into the extreme cold and snow then winter is the season for you, but otherwise spring or summer is the time to come. Winter provides camping and skiing opportunities to people looking for the experience, summer is great for the adventure, and the spring is perfect for experiencing the beautiful life within the taiga. Lucky you our package is open to any season when you might want to visit.

Come See All the Animals!!!

The carniferous forest, also know as the taiga, is full of exciting and exotic animals. It is home to many mammals and birds, however most reptiles are scarce. Walk the tree-lined trails and go bird spotting. Who knows, you may get lucky and see a gyrfalcon-the largest falcon in the world! Or get the once in a lifetime look at other well-associated animals of the region such as:

-Siberian tigers!


-Bald Eagles

-Kermode bear

-Big horn sheep

-Monarch butterflies

-Tassel-eared squirrels

-Common loons

-Great grey owls

and much more!


What is there to do while I'm there? There's always beautiful sights to see!

If you come in the winter: The Kermode bears hibernate for the winter, but you can watch the birds of the coniferous forest migrate south.

If you come in the summer: That's when everything comes out to play!

If you come in the spring: The air is crisp and cool, and the bird population is back! (best season for bird spotting)

If you come in the fall: That's when (almost) everything comes out to play!

I heard the word "ungulate". What does that mean? An ungulate is any animal with hooves. (e.g zebras, rhinos, moose)

Common Loons calling

The Plant life is Breath-taking

The gorgeous Coniferous forest covers approximately 15% of the Earths land surface with its natural beauty. This forest is home to acres and acres of evergreens that are perfect for relaxing trail walks and adventure. For the most part of the year forest trees such as balsam fir are covered with snow that grow very close together for an even broader, more beautiful landscape. Luckily these trees are usually shaped like an upside down cone to protect the branches from caving and breaking from the heavy snow. This keeps the trees from losing their leaves during the winter thus creating an opportunity to visit and take pictures of them year round. On the other hand mosses and lichens are present to help maintain animals diets in the taiga creating a bigger window of things to see.

Coniferous forest. Coming to theaters near you.

Imagine the perfect vacation. You've got majestic plants for your mom to go "appreciate", massive animals for that annoying thing you call your little brother to look at like its his first days on earth, and you've perfect weather to tie it all together. Skiing, hunting, zip lining, camping and so much more. But of course, something that great has never been within reach of you. But worry not. Chances are, that if you have ever gone ANYWHERE, it was the coniferous forest at least one time. It is the largest biome on earth. You may even live there. Located throughout almost all of Russia, two thirds of Eurasia, and the entire northern half of Northern America. No matter where you are there is some taiga close to you!

For all the scientists out there...

The higher altitudes of most taigas causes temperatures to be typically quite low and the animal and plant life is a bit less diverse, but has more stamina.

Permafrost is just below these forests, just down below the active layer. All that stored carbon is slowly melting so if you want to do some experiments then you better come quick!
