Holiday Duration: 8 Nights

"It took our breath away"

It took our breath away and far exceeded our high expectations of the holiday and that’s all down to you and your staff; we can’t thank you enough for the input and efficient running of the holiday… All I can say is thank you so much for enabling us to have what was truly an amazing holiday as a family.

Overview

Overview

One of the most the most spectacular wilderness areas on the planet, Bella Coola sits where the Coast Range mountains meet the Pacific Ocean. Long fjords, old growth forests, stunning peaks, vast glaciers and abundant wildlife are there to be discovered, and Tweedsmuir Park Lodge provides the ideal base to explore from with the aid of their knowledgeable and friendly guides. It is also just 3 hours from Vancouver, making it the easiest of the bear lodges to access.

  • View and photograph splendid mountain scenery while drifting the scenic Atnarko River in Tweedsmuir Provincial Park
  • Learn to track grizzlies and look for bears in Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, the largest protected area in the province (note: it’s not grizzly season at this time of year)
  • Learn about the region’s First Nations culture by visiting ancient stone carvings and the local totem poles
  • Explore the Great Bear Rainforest, including a visit to a waterfall and an old growth forest of HUGE cedar trees!
  • Drive the rugged Tote Road exploring old homesteads and trappers’ cabins
  • Sleep peacefully in beautiful log or timber-frame chalets with magnificent mountain views

Choose from a private tour, or as part of a group of up to 6 people. Shorter stays are also available – simply ask us to arrange the right stay for you.

Suggested Hotels

"We explored lots of that south coast"

We have just returned from our week in Nova Scotia and wanted to thank you for organising it all. Both hotels were excellent, the Halliburton was very well placed in the city and their restaurant is really excellent. The Hotel Atlantica's cottage was just what we wanted, by the sea and equipped with all we needed and quiet. We explored lots of that south coast with a quick trip to the north but more to see next time! Your printed driving instructions were a GREAT help, not something we have been given before and greatly appreciated them.
