Hollie Galloway

As a child growing up in rural England, Hollie could be found in any weather exploring the countryside with her horses. These years developed a lifelong appreciation for the outdoors and fostered her awareness of the incredible connections we can develop with animals. In 2015, following her emigration to Canada, Hollie completed a certificate in Adventure Tourism from the Westcoast Adventure College on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.  This education allowed Hollie to combine her love of wilderness with her lifelong equestrian pursuit to become a trail-riding guide for a season. It was that summer experience that would open doors into guiding further, as Hollie became aware of two things: her intense appreciation for remote places that require intention and effort to access, and her genuine desire to share that passion with others.

In 2016, Hollie headed to the Great Bear Rainforest on the central BC coast to work closely with grizzly bears and begin developing her wildlife photography skills. Her experience with large mammals and a growing knowledge of animal behavior expanded her understanding of these iconic symbols of the wild and led Hollie farther on her journey to becoming a naturalist bear expert. Her dedication and enthusiasm have led to a full guide certification and board position with the Commercial Bear Viewing Association of British Columbia. She also volunteers with research projects on grizzly bears throughout BC and is passionate about the conservation of this umbrella species. Hollie is excited to lead Churchill summer and polar bear expeditions for Natural Habitat Adventures.

Praise from Natural Habitat travelers:

K. Ogle
“Hollie was a terrific group leader. She was knowledgeable, flexible, poised, energetic and positive. She rolled with challenges as they came up and taught us a lot of great facts about life on the tundra. She was truly an excellent, talented guide and a natural leader.”

E. Shinn
“Hollie showed leadership and good people skills. Her knowledge about polar bears, wildlife and the Arctic is outstanding. She was always looking out for the well-being of expedition members and tried to make sure our individual needs were met. Good job!”

W. Henderson
“Hollie did an outstanding job of sharing her knowledge of the areas, local sites, customs and, of course, polar bears! She made all of us feel special and a part of the excursion. I believe we were all super impressed with her knowledge and ability to convey information in such interesting ways. I enjoyed the entire trip from start to finish, but having a guide as terrific as Hollie was one of the best parts of our adventure.”

J. Moore
“Hollie Galloway was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and always available for questions. She has all of the attributes of a true leader. There are not enough accolades that could be written for her. It would be a pleasure to travel with her again in the future.”

T. Gould
“She was excellent in every way. She was very knowledgeable and great on follow-up if she didn't have an immediate answer to a question. I enjoyed her gentle teaching style and learned a lot on our trip. She was energetic, optimistic and helped us to appreciate aspects of the trip beyond just seeing the polar bears. She always did everything she could to get us the best photo opportunities, which was much appreciated.”
