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.”

“Dear Jeff & Bindi,
The bears were awesome – fair dinkum we were so lucky to have such great weather & to see so many bears. It will take some doing for the experience to ever be bettered – ridgie didge!! Thanks for the memory! “Terri & George Old, Dale Sheppard. Collie, Western Australia

Dear Jeff & Bindi,
It has been an amazing weekend & it has changed our views forever about bears. Your passion, understanding and knowledge of them is very inspiring. Thank you for sharing your life with us & for the amazing food, walks & boat trip. We have a life time of memories.

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.
