Spectacular for wildlife, here’s a few snipets of their latest news……………………………………………………..
We have great news – due to popular demand, we’ve extended our season until the end of October! It’s a great month to come to Bella Coola, see why below.
Great Reasons To Visit In October:-
Grizzly Bears! – September is not the only month with great bear viewing: October is too! The bears are fattening up before going into hibernation. In October, grizzlies seem to frequent our lower lodge lawn more often than during other months in order to graze on the glover mixed amongst the grass.
Fly-Fishing! – September and October are the best months to catch Coho (aka Silver) Salmon. Even if you are an absolute beginner, we encourage you to give fishing a try! We can supply every piece of fishing equipment : from cast & fly rods, to lures, boots and waders. Our guides will show you the best spots.
Beautiful Autumn Colours! – The contrast is amazing: lush, green lawns, with deciduous trees displaying every variation of green, yellow, orange and red you can imagine…..and sometimes there might be a backdrop of white when the mountain tops receive their first dustings of snow.
Mild Temperatures! – In October the summer heat is long gone and winter’s frigid temperatures haven’t arrived just yet.
Great Reasons To Visit In June & July
Early summer is also a great time to visit the Bella Coola valley with milder temperatures and less holiday traffic. Here’s some more great reasons to stay with us in June and July (oh yeah, June has low season rates too!).
Fishing! – If you are a fisherman or interested in the salmon ecology on the coast, this is the time for Chinook/Spring salmon!
Babies! – Early summer is the time for young wild animals to take their first steps out of their den or nest. Black bear cubs as small as 4 pounds scamper around their mum, ducklings float in a single file chirping. Grizzlies can be seen at this time of year, just not as frequently as in October. They haven’t been long out of hibernation and will be on the look out for food!
