Awe and humility...our greatest attributes.

Experience the Bella Coola Valley with a trip down the Atnarko River.

Join our Accredited Guides for a half day river rafting trip on the Atnarko River. Mid August through October is when the chances of observing grizzly & black bears fishing for salmon are at their peak.

These guided trips are very popular & fill up quickly. We must state that the eco-rafting trips are subject to availability &/or environmental conditions and keep in mind wild beings have their own ideas, schedules, behaviours & tolerances. Obviously bear sightings /interactions cannot be guaranteed however, "A day (or half day) spent on the river, is time well spent."

We offer the ultimate bear-watching experience for valley visitors.

"Bear lovers", families, photographers & naturalists are invited to join us for eco-rafting trips down the 'river of bears'.
We strive for something more than a 'bear tour'.

Our hope is to "re-wild your Spirit" - immersing you in some of the most ecologically & culturally significant salmon & grizzly bear habitat that remains on earth. Thrive in this living Eden - marvel at the natural wonders found in the Bella Coola Valley, gateway to the Great Bear Rainforest.
