Exciting and Natural Bear-Viewing, Nature and Wilderness Holidays
Wild Bear Lodge (formerly Grizzly Bear Ranch) is a small, specialised wilderness lodge about halfway between Vancouver and Calgary.
We are located in the world’s only inland temperate rainforest, a vast hideaway of ancient mountains, old-growth trees, and fast-flowing rivers.
We offer some of the most exciting and natural bear-viewing, nature and wilderness holidays in north America, against a backdrop of some of western Canada’s most dramatic terrain.
The focus of what we offer varies seasonally.
In May and June we concentrate on bears, both black and grizzly, other indigenous wildlife, and British Columbia‘s magnificent nature.
We roam far and wide, through ancient rainforests and into the sub-alpine.
In September and October, as the Fall colours arrive, we turn our focus to the wild Rocky Mountain grizzly bear.
We walk and raft through their terrain as the red salmon arrive to spawn, and head into the alpine to watch high-elevation grizzlies feeding on berries.
