Located in the Bella Coola Valley on the edge of the Great Bear Rainforest; this historic lodge is a classic Canadian wilderness lodge set on 60 acres of private land nestled within the Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, the largest protected park in British Columbia. You are only steps from experiencing many different adventures such as wild life viewing, fishing, horseback riding with Icelandic Horses, Via Ferrata (assisted climbing with metal rungs and ladders), and Heli-hiking or sightseeing. The lodge is ideally located in a region with one of the healthiest bear habitats in the world and often the bears can be seen wandering past the lodge, making it unique among bear viewing lodges.

Day 2


Wake up early and wander down to our Wildlife Viewing Station, which is for the exclusive use of Tweedsmuir Park Lodge guests. Early morning is a great time to spot bears and the raised structure provides open lines of sight both up and down the river. Afterwards, it’s time to head out for a Guided Nature Walk in the old growth forests of Tweedsmuir Park. Your guide, a naturalist, will show you how to track the bears and will point out various bear signs. In the afternoon, continue exploring Tweedsmuir Park with a drive on the Tote Road past old, abandoned homesteads brimming with character. (B)(L)(D)

Day 3


Check out the Wildlife Viewing Station before breakfast. Then it’s time to hit the river with your guide for a morning drift on the Atnarko River in search of more bears! The bears are most active in the morning and evening and it’s a great time to enjoy a quiet float. A nutritious lunch will be served at the lodge before you head off with your guide to further explore Tweedsmuir Park. Our knowledgeable and friendly guides know the area well and have mapped numerous short hikes to superb vantage points overlooking the Atnarko River to see spawning salmon - and the bears and eagles fishing for them!
