Wild Bears and Virgin Wilderness

Grizzly Bear Ranch is a small specialised lodge about halfway between Vancouver and Calgary that offers spring wildlife-viewing, summer wilderness adventures and autumn grizzly bear-viewing.

In May and June we take our guests deep into the British Columbia wilderness to view the stunning local wildlife.

In the summer we head high into the alpine to walk among snow-laden mountain peaks, and raft on our blue-green wilderness river.

In the autumn we offer a chance to view totally wild grizzly bears in their own world.

Gourmet Cuisine and Private Cabins

We combine expertly-guided tours with fine cuisine and private riverside cabins with stunning views.

Kristin is an enthusiastic and trained cook, who graduated at the North West Culinary Academy of Vancouver, one of Canada’s leading culinary schools.

Using organic ingredients she sources locally and herbs she grows herself, she creates fresh meals which we serve with British Columbian beer and wines.

While staying at the ranch you will have your own luxurious hand-built riverside cabin away from the main house with its own ensuite bathroom and sundeck.

An Unforgettable Riverside Setting

The ranch is set on 32 acres of remote wilderness on the banks of a fast-flowing river.

Tucked away in the mountains in a little-known valley, it is an easy and scenic day’s drive from Vancouver and Calgary.

The ranch can also be reached via the regional airport of Castlegar, which is about a three hour drive away.

Unlike many coastal ecosystems, we typically enjoy good weather throughout most of the season.

Most of our precipitation arrives in the form of snow during the winter months.
