Whether boating the fjords, floating the river for salmon or hiking in the alpine it befits everyone for you to be prepared
Bella Coola Valley is a region extremes – rugged mountains, glistening waters, lush rainforests, icy glaciers, extensive coastlines. Though Canada’s scenery is breathtakingly beautiful, it also plays host to unpredictable and potentially dangerous terrain, weather and wildlife.
We rarely head out for an outdoor adventure with the expectation that something will go wrong, and, most times, everything will go right. However, that one time that the unexpected happens…your investment in Trip Safety can mean the difference between a successful outcome and becoming a statistic.
Did you know that each year there are over 400 drowning deaths in Canada, 10% are anglers of whom 90% are not wearing a PFD? The latest in Personal Flotation Device technology offers comfortable, lightweight, inflatable life-saving vests designed specifically for sport fishing. Get a PFD and use it. Don’t become a statistic
There is no shortage of opportunities to enjoy Bella Coola Valley’s incredible terrain in a variety of ways – running, hiking, biking, horseback riding, off-roading, climbing, caving, and the list goes on. We love to see people out clambering up mountains, ripping through trails and generally enjoying everything this wondrous country has to offer! Our goal is to give you the tools and knowledge to have a safe and enjoyable outing, regardless of your outdoor adventure passion.
