Grizzly Bear Ranch, Selkirk Mountains

Offering authentic and fully-guided wilderness vacations, Grizzly Bear Ranch is the ultimate haven for the wildlife enthusiast and lover of the great outdoors.

Away from the crowds in a remote corner of the Selkirk Mountains, Grizzly Bear Ranch provides the perfect jumping off point for adventures in British Columbia. The lodge offers a range of all-inclusive wilderness packages, from wildlife viewing tours in the spring to white-water rafting trips in the summer. But their speciality is undoubtedly bear viewing. On a typical bear watching itinerary in Fall you will enjoy enchanting river walks, boat rides and even helicopter flights to observe wild bears live and feed in their natural environment.

Include a stay at Grizzly Bear Ranch on your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Canada and you could also go hiking in the high alpine, ride a Zodiac boat to hidden lakes and lounge on deserted beaches. There really is no end to the adventure. And when you return at the end of each day, you will be welcomed by fresh, seasonal cuisine and charming riverside cabins with sundecks and spacious bathrooms.
