Tweedsmuir Park Lodge | Grizzly Bear Viewing

Holiday Duration: 8 Nights

Overview

Overview

Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is just 3 hours from Vancouver and the easiest of the bear lodges to get to and Tweedsmuir Park Lodge makes an ideal base to see grizzlies.

During the autumn as the salmon return to spawn, Bella Coola has one of the highest concentrations of grizzly bears on the planet as they feed ready for their winter hibernation and you can see these magnificent animals as they hunt along the local rivers, and their expert guides help you navigate the old growth forests, pristine rivers and stunning peaks of the Bella Coola Valley on a number of excursions by foot or boat during your stay.

  • Observe grizzly bears feasting on salmon
  • Float the pristine Atnarko River in a non-motorized McKenzie Drift Boat or Raft!
  • Explore the ancient Great Bear Rainforest in the company of a local guide
  • Explore Nuxalk First Nations culture and visit the petroglyph gardens
  • Stay in private chalets at the award-winning Tweedsmuir Park Lodge

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

"The Rocky Mountaineer was superb"

Everything went to plan and ran smoothly with planes, cars, trains and accommodation. The Rocky Mountaineer was superb and a great experience, so well organised and such good service on board. The selection of hotels we ended up with was an eclectic mix. Cathedral Lodge in Field was outstanding and by far the best in terms of location, style and service. Just out of this world although the Black Fish Lodge experience was equally good although quite different. Lovely people there who took good care of us with amazing wild life spotting opportunities along with the fishing.

I can’t thank you enough for your patience in the planning process getting the package together and trying to match to our specific requirements. You always understood the brief and were quick in following up options and so on. Not an inexpensive holiday for sure but so memorable. It will be very hard to beat.
