The Great Bear Rainforest offers unique experiences and adventures in an unspoiled wilderness environment.
Activities such as wildlife and grizzly viewing, whale watching, cultural exploration, hiking, kayaking, boating and fishing attract adventure seekers, outdoor enthusiasts and those looking for an off-the-beaten-path type of experience.
Spirit Bear Lodge in Klemtu offers a chance to see the elusive Spirit bear. Travel with guides to remote islands, valleys and estuaries for the chance to spot this unique sub-species of black bear noted for its white fur. Floating base camps like Knight Inlet Lodge and Great Bear Lodge offer prime grizzly bear viewing, whale watching, kayaking and rainforest hikes along BC’s rugged coastline.
The Bella Coola Valley offers prime wildlife and grizzly viewing - in fact grizzlies are often seen in and around the town. Get a unique river’s-eye view from a raft or drift-boat trip down the Atnarko River with Kynoch Adventures. Book a stay in Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, a full-service luxury lodge that offers guided grizzly tours and outdoor activities like fishing, heli-hiking, birding and wildlife viewing - all set against a stunning mountain backdrop.
