Wildlife experiences are so much better in small, intimate groups. Group size is definitely something you should consider when booking your holiday. At Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, guests have the option of choosing a Private or a Small Group package. Here are the differences:
Private packages equal Flexibility plus Exclusivity! All of your tours are composed of just the people in your reservation (plus the guide of course!). On the guided Wilderness River Drifts you will get to use a McKenzie Drift Boat, which is the best option for serious photographers (as it has a solid base and sides).
Small-Group packages equal Social plus Value! Both Guided Nature Walks and River Drifts are in small groups, with no more than 6 people. Drift the river in a comfortable raft with seats. The Small Group package has a set itinerary.
Nestled in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, Tweedsmuir Park Lodge offers guests an authentic wilderness experience while enjoying world-class service. Just a short 70-minute flight from Vancouver, the historic lodge has been welcoming nature lovers to the spectacular Bella Coola Valley since 1929. The area is renowned for its abundant wildlife and is located in one of the best grizzly bear habitats in the world. In the autumn, visitors from around the world marvel at the majesty of grizzly bears fishing on the scenic Atnarko River, just meters from the lodge.
Tweedsmuir Park Lodge specializes in providing Private and Small Group packages for three, four, five and seven nights. All-inclusive packages include lodging and meals, as well as scenic river drifts and guided nature walks. Optional activities include heli-hiking, fishing, e-biking, climbing a Via Ferrata, and horseback riding. Accommodation in 10 beautiful log and timber-frame chalets offers the privacy to make it a perfect destination for a couple or a family.
Tweedsmuir Park Lodge has been recognized as the #1 Hotel in British Columbia by TripAdvisor, one of “BC’s Best Luxury Lodges” by CNN, and is a founding member of The Magnificent 7 – Luxury Wilderness Lodges of Canada!
