The Bears of Tweedsmuir

Tweedsmuir is an attractive, family-style wilderness lodge nestled within Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, Bella Coola, BC. Constructed in the 1920s as a hunting lodge, it has since been renovated to accommodate those seeking out a more eco-friendly adventure, and now stands as one of the best grizzly bear-viewing locations in Canada.
