Your excursion begins in magical old growth forest – grizzly territory. The Great Bear Rainforest is their backyard, and they often stroll right past the lodge. Constructed in 1929, Tweedsmuir Park Lodge initially served as a hunting and fishing retreat, now updated to include modern amenities. Authentic Canadian hospitality ensures your Chalet stay is a welcome getaway.
The vast and rugged Coast Range is the ideal setting for sensational heli-hiking and heli-skiing. Accompany a local guide to learn the Smayustas – the creation stories of the proud Nuxalk people. Visit 10,000-year-old petroglyphs, learn archery, river fishing and even ride an Icelandic horse! Play on the slackline with the scenic mountain backdrop.
Follow the lifecycle of the salmon as they return to spawn. Watch eagles as they soar higher up the slopes, where towering glaciers exhibit the sublime beauty of Bella Coola.
Enjoy a wildlife viewing, an adventure tour, or have an afternoon to yourself, indulging in a good book next to the crackling fire. Delight in the lodge’s pristine setting, and enjoy the now. Breathe in….this mountain air is like nowhere else on the planet.
