Great Bear Rain Forest and Tweedsmuir National Park

Rainforests have always been a magical place for me and today my girlfriend Pat and I begin our journey to one that has long been on my list to visit. Our destination is Tweedsmuir Park Lodge located in the Great Bear Rainforest near Bella Coola on the Atnarko River, one of the most pristine Grizzly bear habitats in North America. Our route will take us from Vancouver Island to Vancouver and then on to our first stop in the town of Clinton via the Duffy Lake Road. Fall colours are at their loveliest and the drive should be a stunning one. For those of you interested in following us on a map, I have included a map of SW British Columbia. We will travel on Hwy 99 through Whistler and Pemberton, then turn north on Hwy 97 to Williams Lake, before turning west on Hwy 20 to Bella Coola and the Lodge. A short slideshow highlights some of the beauty of the area we are travelling to, as well as photos of the lodge and surroundings. As always I look forward to sharing the journey with you. Regular notifications will be posted on Facebook, or you can follow me at
