A top-rated grizzly and black bear viewing experience in southern British Columbia
We combine expertly-guided bear-viewing with freshly-cooked cuisine and private riverside cabins with stunning views.
Sharing the bears’ world
Julius and Kristin, who opened the ranch in 2006, believe that the key to enjoying a first-class bear-viewing experience is understanding the bears and their world. We have a talented team of experienced and certified bear guides.
Each day we take you out into the world of the Rocky Mountain grizzly bear and black bear, using our 4x4s, boats and rafts.
Freshly-cooked meals, private cabins
Using organic ingredients she sources locally and herbs she grows herself, she creates fresh meals every evening which we serve with British Columbian beer and wines.
An unforgettable riverside setting
The ranch is set on 32 acres of wilderness on the banks of a fast-flowing mountain river.
Our philosophy: small, personal, natural
We do not use viewing platforms or large motorised boats to view bears from a distance. We prefer to move through the bears’ world using our knowledge to interpret their behaviour and keep you safe.
For that reason our offerings are not a good match for the physically frail or for those for whom photography is their sole priority.
Some of the world’s most beautiful wilderness
In exchange we can offer you an unforgettable setting, excellent food, good company and a chance to experience bears living naturally in some of the most beautiful wilderness left in the world.
This was a truly wonderful experience on so many levels. The warmth, hospitality and generosity of Julius & Kristin, not forgetting Kristin’s great cooking. The marvellous scenery, our fun fellow guests, the beautiful log cabin with it’s cosy woodburner, the white water rafting, the trip to an isolated peak with breathtaking views, the majestic bald eagles. Oh, and the bears! To see these animals behaving naturally in their own environment was a real privilege.” Richard & Jenn, Reading, UK.
