Tweedsmuir Park Lodge may be remote, however, there are tons of activities for adults and kids alike! A 2 or 3 night visit isn’t enough to experience all that the Bella Coola Valley has to offer, therefore we recommend a stay of 4 or more nights, especially if you would like to see lots of bears and other wildlife.

In addition to our Grizzly Bear ToursBella Coola Fly-Fishing trips and other guided experiences, we offer a range of FREE activities that will keep adults and families busy for days!
