The Ultimate Wild Bear-Viewing

Grizzly bears eating fish

We offer fully-guided bear-viewing and wilderness holidays in the heart of British Columbia’s unique inland temperate rainforest.

A picturesque day’s drive from Calgary and Vancouver, our ranch has six custom-built riverside cabins. Each has its own bathroom, sundeck and wood-burning stove. We also have a renowned local table. We can cater for up to 12 guests.

Julius, a former war correspondent who is now one of BC’s leading bear guides, and his wife Kristin, a trained and accomplished chef, run the lodge.

A Small Luxury Wilderness Lodge

All holidays at the ranch are four or five nights in duration. We don’t believe in rushing what nature has to offer. We specialise in viewing bears, especially grizzly bears, as well as other wilderness wildlife.

In May and June we offer holidays viewing bears and other wild animals deep in the wilderness. During the hot summer months we head high into the alpine and out onto our river. In September and October as the leaves begin to fall we immerse ourselves in the world of the wild Rocky Mountain grizzly bear.

Although we use 4x4s and off-road vehicles to get to the best locations, once there we do all our wildlife-viewing on foot, making for an unscripted and completely wild experience.
