Looking for a complete vacation in the Chilcotin-Coast? The Chilcotin Coast Experience is three unique resorts, set in three diverse landscapes, and terrific wilderness experiences. All at an affordable price. Let us help you plan your vacation in the amazing Chilcotin-Coast!
Sometimes called The Last Frontier for its unique beauty and diverse ecosystems, the Chilcotin-Coast region is one of the most dramatic expanses of wilderness to be found anywhere in North America. Comprised of the Great Bear Rainforest and the Chilcotin Ark - two of the most spectacular and unspoiled wilderness areas of their kind - the 456 kilometers of Highway 20 provide easy access to this prime vacation area.
Bella Coola Grizzly Tours is proud to be part of this association of fine resorts. See the Chilcotin Coast Experience website for more information and how to reserve your vacation. Below are some highlights!
Bella Coola Valley and the Great Bear Rainforest
This is the home of Bella Coola Grizzly Tours. Hwy #20 is the picturesque drive that connects the coastal community of Bella Coola and the central Cariboo community of Williams Lake. From the Chilcotin Plateau, drop down 5,000 feet, to the floor of the Bella Coola Valley! This is the centre of the area now known as the Great Bear Rainforest. Explore this incredible region with a tour from Bella Coola Grizzly Tours. Your host Leonard Ellis offers modern cabin accommodation and terrific day tours that will make your visit to the Bella Coola Valley a memorable experience.
Take a day trip up some of the longest glacial fjords in the world onboard the 42-foot MV Nekhani. This voyage through the middle of the Great Bear Rainforest will visit wilderness hot springs and First Nations pictographs, search out some of the abundant wildlife, with a delicious seafood lunch!
The spectacular scenery of the Discovery Coast is worth the trip all by itself. Leonard has been guiding people on these waters for over 30 years, and is a knowledgeable and charming host.
Or choose a land tour by bus to view magnificent scenery, ancient petroglyphs, the giant red cedars of the rainforest, and perhaps wildlife like grizzly bears and eagles.
Make Bella Coola Grizzly Tours part of your Chilcotin Coast Experience and let Leonard show you the best of the Bella Coola Valley.
