Wild Bears and Virgin Wilderness

Grizzly Bear Ranch is a small luxury lodge about halfway between Vancouver and Calgary specialising in remote, authentic wilderness and wildlife experiences.

In May and June we go deep into the British Columbia wilderness to view bears and other wildlife.

In July and August we head high into the alpine to hike among snow-laden mountain peaks, raft on our blue-green river, and take a Zodiac boat onto wilderness lakes to spectacular waterfalls and remote empty beaches.

If you come in September or October we will give you a truly authentic grizzly bear experience – a chance to view completely wild bears deep in their natural habitat.

Gourmet Cuisine and Riverside Cabins

What we specialise in is quite unlike anything else in British Columbia or Alaska, where many operators offer canned bear-viewing around some kind of managed attractant.

Our bears by contrast are completely wild. We will strive to give you a few remarkable bear experiences during your stay that you will never forget.

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

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

Helping to Save Grizzly Bears

The ranch is set on 110 acres of remote wilderness on the banks of a fast-flowing river.

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.

Conservation is at the heart of what we do and for every guest that books a holiday with us we put $100-$150 into our grizzly bear conservation fund.

We are currently working on ending all grizzly bear hunting in BC – and have had some success in this effort – and are funding studies to allow for better population counts of bears.
