Canada Lynx Expedition
Join professional wildlife photographer Daniel Dietrich on an expedition to find the elusive Canada Lynx.
Where are we going?
The Cariboo Mountains in central British Colombia is home to grizzly bears, black bears, moose, caribou, mule deer, wolves, mink, marten, wolverine and the Canada lynx. Our expeditions in February and March target lynx. We will also target wolves, moose and wintering birds depending on our success with lynx.
Where are we staying?
The lodge is located on the Quesnel River at the outlet of Quesnel Lake in Likely, British Colombia.
How do we find them?
We will be up early and our guides will take us by 4x4 vehicles or snowmobiles into the Cariboo Mountains. From there we will track our subjects via showshoes.

Day 1: Fly into Williams Lake (YWL) via Vancouver (YVR). Our guide will pick us up and take us the 1.5 hour drive to our lodging.
Day 2-5: Breakfast is at 6am. The rest of the day will be spent tracking and photographing our target species. Back to the lodge by 5pm. Dinner at 6pm.
