We recognize that you may be hesitant to book in these uncertain times. But good news! We want to allay your fears by making booking a trip with us RISK FREE.
Deposits - No deposit required!! Yes, no deposit.
This means if you are thinking about a trip this summer, you should book NOW to make sure there's availability, and you will have peace of mind knowing you do not have to pay a cent until 30 days from your trip start date!
Cancelling within 30 days - In the case where you are prohibited from: leaving your home country; entering Canada; or travelling within Canada due to a COVID-19 governmental ban, we will fully credit your trip with the equivalent trip in the next 2 summers, and you will not need to pay the yearly rate increase! If you would like to cancel within 30 days, but not due to COVID-19, then our standard policy takes effect (i.e. no refund).
We ask our guests to thoroughly read all information supplied on our website before registering for our multi-day adventure programs because significant expenses and long term commitments are made to set up the trips on your behalf.
Registration & Payment
To guarantee your reservation we will send you a link to an online Booking Form. Within 48 hours of receiving your completed form, you will be sent an invoice with instructions on how to pay the 50% partially* refundable deposit for all-inclusive packages (unless it is within 90 days of arrival, in which case, the full amount is due). For Nightly Accommodation, the full amount is due at time of booking.
A reservation confirmation will be sent to you upon receipt of payment. The balance of the all-inclusive packages is due 90 days before the date of your arrival in Bella Coola.
* If you need to cancel before your trip starts, visit our Cancellation & Refunds page for details.
All prices are quoted in Canadian dollars and do not include tax. For all-inclusive package the tax rate is 5% for both international guests and Canadian. For accommodation-only bookings the tax rate is 16%.
The guide's duty is to monitor, evaluate and minimize the risks associated with the activities being offered. However, even the best guides are not infallible and the risks associated with a wilderness environment are only partially under our control. By registering with us you acknowledge these risks. All guests will be required to sign a Release of Liability (Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreement) upon arriving in Bella Coola. Please read the waiver carefully before booking your holiday to ensure you are comfortable with the terms of this document and will be able to sign it, because you will not be permitted to partake in any activities until the waiver is signed.

All claims - irrespective of the nationality of the participants - will be governed in all respects by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of British Columbia.
Tweedsmuir Park Lodge does not carry insurance on behalf of our guests. We therefore recommend you carry the following:
Extended Medical Insurance. Your medical insurance should cover you for life and health care risks while in Canada, and in addition should provide for transport to your home country if you reside outside of Canada.
Emergency Evacuation Insurance. In the case of injury, air ambulance expenses will be charged to the injured party.
Personal Property Insurance. Insure your personal belongings against loss. Your homeowner's insurance may not be enough. Be sure that this insurance covers you while you are in Canada.
Trip Cancellation Insurance. In view of our cancellation policy, we strongly recommend that all our guests purchase holiday cancellation insurance.
