Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, Bella Coola

Bella Coola Valley has one of the largest concentrations of grizzly bears to be found in the whole of British Columbia. So it’s not that surprising that – if you make nearby Tweedsmuir Park Lodge a must on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Canada – you will meet grizzlies.

You will also meet with a whole host of other adventures in the wilds surrounding this collection of authentically-styled woodsman chalets and cabins. You could, for example, take a helicopter to the most remote fishing spots, or normally unreachable hiking points. Or drift along the beautiful Atnarko with an expert fishing guide. Or cruise a magnificent fjord on the hunt for crab and shrimp. Or explore the culture and heritage of the Nuxalk people…
