Wanting to explore the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast but unsure about where exactly to go and what to do while you're there? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Booking a guided adventure with a local business can help to alleviate many pressures of the trip-planning process, in addition to creating an even higher-value experience.

Arranging your overnight stay with a private accommodator also allows you to ask your host about other attractions in the area, get updates on features or conditions that haven’t yet been published online, and learn about common mistakes of previous guests!

Ironic that the photo of the Stand with all those people crowded in (Pre Covid) was taken from the comfort of one of our river tours on our rafts to float down the Atnarko River.

This season we are operating at reduced capacity with 4 guests only in our boats. A great way to beat the crowds and see the bears at river level!

Email us at [email protected] to book a tour!

In September, the Bear Viewing Station at Belarko, in Tweedsmuir Park provides a safe way to get close to bears. Watch from a platform as bears dive & splash in the river. Open everyday & fully staffed. BC Residents only. https://bellacoola.ca/activities/wild-life-viewing/

Kynoch Adventures is offering exclusive travel and tour options for small groups of BC Residents on our Eco Rafting and Bear Viewing Tours from July 22 to Oct 15 2020!

Please email us to inquire and we hope to see some BC Residents explore Bella Coola, the Real BC!

* note - photos are pre Covid. Group size will typically be 4 guests in each boat.

Looking forward to seeing BC guests soon!

The Bella Coola Valley is now accepting to BC tourists as long as they respect our COVID guidelines (masks, distance & avoid stores). Ask your accommodations staff for local products.

A sow grizzly and young cub on our Atnarko River Bear Tour.

YOHO ADVENTURES

The Central Coast of BC offers some of the best Grizzly Bear Viewing in North America, particularly in The Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia.
One of our favourite sightings has been when the Sow's bring their cubs down to feed, watching them maneuver across fallen logs and swim across the rivers and streams to follow mum, it's just priceless!
The cubs even sounds like little chainsaw's as they try to figure out who these people in rafts are staring at them. We keep a good distance with our professional Bear Viewing guides, who ensure respectful and safe practices when drifting down the Atnarko River to view the Bears.
