Reasons to Visit Tweedsmuir Park Lodge

Location and Accessibility

It’s easy to get here. You could be experiencing all that Bella Coola and Tweedsmuir Park Lodge have to offer just one hour and fifteen minutes from Vancouver. Shorter travel time means you can spend more time outdoors, breathing in the clean alpine air. Imagine waking up in Vancouver and just hours later, you are floating down a river in Tweedsmuir Park: fishing, enjoying the pristine scenery or photographing grizzly bears up close.

Remarkable Setting

The historic Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is nestled on 60 acres of private wilderness land within Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, the largest protected park in British Columbia. It is 63 kilometres by road, from the Bella Coola Harbour and boarders the dry Chilcotin Plateau. Tweedsmuir Park Lodge has exquisite views and is situated near the base of an 8,000 foot rock peak, the aptly named Mt. Stupendous. There is 400 meters of frontage on the Atnarko River  which is just steps away.  The First Nations name for the area was "Stooick" which translates as 'nice place to rest'.

Incredible Adventure Experience

Access to the wilderness has never been easier. Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is proud to offer some of the most unique and memorable adventure experiences available. Whether you want to wander the high alpine via helicopter, dip your feet in an alpine lake, pull a tasty trout from a pristine glacial stream, view grizzly bears feeding on salmon, or tour the fjord, we have the adventure trip for you.
