A Small, Luxury Lodge on a Remote Mountain River
Our wilderness guides are trained naturalists and expert bear guides. They lead our guests through bear country in tiny groups – typically two to four guests with one guide – pointing out the subtle signs left by wild animals that have passed before.
To ensure you are far from the tourist crowds, we have fashioned our own wilderness trails. When you are out with us you will often not see another person all day.
As well as grizzly and black bears we share our trails with deer, moose, elk, cougars, lynx, bobcats and wolves and you may see some of these animals or signs of their passing.
The megafauna we watch are free-spirited and untamed. We do not use viewing stands or attractants and sit and wait for them to come to us.
Instead we prefer unscripted experiences, moving quietly through their habitat, walking on their trails, following their tracks, and viewing them in their own world.
Our guides are also specialists in animal tracking. We are on the cutting edge of bear conservation, and are politically active in saving bears and bear habitat.
Julius, a former British foreign correspondent, is now one of BC’s more experienced bear guides. His Estonian-born wife Kristin is a trained and accomplished chef. Together they have run the lodge since 2006.
Their unusual frontlines-to-backcountry story has featured on Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild and in several other media.
