Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, a small group Grizzly Bear viewing lodge & a proud member of the Magnificent 7 Luxury Wilderness Lodges of Canada
A member of The Magnificent 7 - Luxury Wilderness Lodges of Canada, the historic Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is a classic Canadian wilderness lodge set on 60 acres of private land within British Columbia's largest protected provincial park. It is the ideal setting and base for your Guided and Non-Guided Adventures. Originally built in 1929 as a hunting and fishing lodge, today the resort accommodates those seeking a more eco-friendly adventure as well as a relaxing refuge from the pressures of modern life.
The surrounding environment is stunning. Rising above the valley floor are the majestic Coast Mountains, to the west is the largest fjord system in the Americas and to the east the high Chilcotin Plateau. It is a bio-diverse and spectacular wilderness, home to the totemic wildlife of the Great Bear Rainforest.
Our wilderness lodge borders the Atnarko River and in the fall Grizzly Bears come down to feast on the spawning salmon. We are in the middle of what is one of the healthiest bear habitats in the world and often the bears can be seen wandering past the lodge. Sometimes we even catch them napping on the lawn! The grizzly bear viewing at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is highly regarded for the fact that we only run tours in small groups and we use non-motorized boats. Our bear watching tours are the only ones in the whole of the Bella Coola valley to have been recognised by the Canadian Tourism Commission as part of their prestigious Canadian Signature Experiences collection (the CSE highlights truly amazing, authentic Canadian experiences).
All accommodation at the Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is in one of 11 private chalets with the main lodge providing lots of common space for dining, games, and socializing. It is perfect set up for family reunions and corporate groups, which can book the full premises, yet intimate enough that the individual traveler and smaller groups will feel at home. The focus throughout is on great service, and an authentic, welcoming Canadian hospitality.
Although the lodge and the entire Bella Coola Valley are geographically remote, it is nevertheless easy and convenient to make your way to our door step. In the morning you can be in downtown Vancouver then that very afternoon you could be floating down the Atnarko River on one of our wildlife viewing drifts!
At Tweedsmuir Park Lodge we are lucky to live in a stunning and pristine environment and have a wonderful community supporting us. We are committed to keeping it that way and ask all our guests to participate in our environmental stewardship initiatives to ensure that Bella Coola continues to be the most extraordinary place in the world to enjoy the great outdoors.
Join us. Your expectations will be surpassed!!
