Certified Climate Positive, recognized as one of “BC’s Best Luxury Lodges” by CNN Travel, and a founding member of The Magnificent 7 – Luxury Wilderness Lodges of Canada. 

Nestled in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is situated on 60 acres and offers guests a legendary Canadian wilderness experience, in an awe-inspiring setting, with world-class service.

Just a short 70-minute direct flight from downtown Vancouver, the historic lodge has been welcoming nature lovers to the spectacular Bella Coola Valley since 1929. The area is renowned for its abundant wildlife and is located in one of the most pristine grizzly bear habitats in the world.

From late June to late August, we welcome outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers to the Great Bear Rainforest for a relaxing and immersive multi-day wilderness experience. Our activity portfolio includes a number of eco-aware soft adventure activities including scenic river drifts, assisted climbing adventures, interpretive walks & hikes, history, geography, and culture, as well as river fishing, heli-hiking and heli-sightseeing opportunities.

From September 1 to October 16, we welcome visitors from around the world to marvel at the majesty of grizzly bears fishing on the scenic Atnarko River, just a short walk away from the front steps to the lodge.

Tweedsmuir Park Lodge guests select from 1 of 2 package configurations: either Private or Small Group. To make trip planning easy, we have combined all of the necessary components into one seamless all-inclusive package.

Private packages = Flexibility + Exclusivity. Whether you’re looking for adventure or prefer to explore at your leisure, our private packages offer guests the exclusivity of a private guide as well as the ability to tailor their itinerary based on their personal interests and physical fitness level.

Small Group packages = Social + Value. Our small group packages offer the knowledge and expertise of experienced guides in a fun and social setting. The itinerary is set and groups feature no more than 6 participants per guide. Family and friend groups can be larger than 6 if they wish; however, we will not group more than 6 individuals from separate groups together.

All packages include return transfers to and from the Bella Coola airport or the BC Ferries terminal, lodging, all food and beverage, and two half-day or one full-day guided activity on each full day of the package. Optional add ons include heli-hiking, heli-sightseeing, river fishing, and boat tours to explore the local fjords and natural hot springs.

Come nightfall, guests stay in 1 of 10 beautiful log and timber-frame chalets, offering privacy, right on the forest’s edge. All accommodations feature air-conditioning, a gas fireplace, and can accommodate 2 to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children per chalet. All chalets are built surrounding a central lawn and have excellent views and offer plenty of privacy.

The main lodge building is the central location for socializing. There is a large living and dining room complete with a well stocked bar and river rock fireplace; a games area with billiards table, foosball table, dart board, satellite TV, and a retail shop. There is complimentary satellite Wi-Fi access throughout the lodge and chalets. In addition to the main lodge and chalets, there is a 1,200 sq/ft spa building with a yoga stretching room, weights and stationary bikes, massage room, cedar sauna, showers and a 12 person covered outdoor hot tub overlooking the lawn and the Coast Range beyond.

Due to the high frequency of wildlife activity on the property, we do not allow pets.

Depending on the season you will see grizzly and black bears, mountain goats, deer, moose, caribou, eagles, trumpeter swans and a wide variety of plants and wild flowers.

There are also fascinating archaeological sites and remains of pioneer homesteads to explore.
