Day 1 - ARRIVAL - BCE
For those arriving by air, enjoy the 70 minute mid-morning flight to Bella Coola, marvelling at the impressive Coast Range mountains and expansive fjord system as you fly overhead. On arrival, our staff will greet you and transfer you the 45 minutes to the lodge, highlighting points of interest along the way. If you are arriving by car, we recommend arriving by 2pm as your first bear viewing tour will start around 3pm!
After check-in, your holiday will start with a lodge orientation and an informative bear awareness seminar.
Your bear viewing commences with a late afternoon Scenic River Drift down the Atnarko River. Relax and enjoy the amazing mountain scenery……..and keep your eyes open for wildlife! The salmon are spawning and provide an easy meal for majestic bald eagles and impressive grizzly bears. River otters and black bears may also be seen. Small Group River Drift Bear Viewing is a unique experience only found at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge and is the best way to see grizzlies. The bears are busy fishing and ignore your presence, allowing you to see them at their most natural. It’s also a great way to capture amazing photographs.
The bears aren’t the only ones who will be feasting on a delicious meal; you will too, with a scrumptious 3 course dinner back at the lodge! Dinner is at 7:00pm every night
