The historic Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is an inviting, family-style wilderness lodge nestled within Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, Bella Coola, BC. It is situated on 60 acres of pristine wilderness land with access to a variety of summer recreational opportunities. Originally built in 1929 as a hunting lodge, it was rebuilt in 1952 to accommodate those seeking out a more eco-friendly adventure.
The lodge is well known for its friendly environment and the calming effect it has on those who visit. After a big day of outdoor activities, guests can relax in front of two huge fireplaces, enjoy the new spa facility, soak in the outdoor hot tub, or simply retire to the lodge deck for drinks before dinner. Enjoy the mountain views and keep your eyes open for the local wildlife, including Grizzly Bears and Black Bears which may lumber past on the lawn.
Guests can leave the hustle and bustle of Vancouver in the morning then watch a grizzly catch a salmon on a pristine river that very afternoon! Grizzly Bear season is from late August to middle of October. However if you are visiting outside of bear season there are plenty of other activities to enjoy such as: scenic river drifts, guided fishing, guided nature walks, fjord trips, heli hiking, valley culture tours and birding.
