Wilderness Meets Luxury

Tweedsmuir Park Lodge

The ultimate wilderness retreat

Enjoy an incredible combination of the world's best alpine heli-sking terrain and luxury chalet accommodation. Feel the exhilaration of heli-skiing untracked snow by day and relaxing in comfort each evening at our flagship property, a proud member of The Magnificent 7 - Luxury Wilderness Lodges of Canada.

Set on 60 acres of private land within British Columbia’s largest protected park, our historic property offers luxury lodge accommodation in an awe-inspiring wilderness setting.

Originally built in 1929 as a fishing-hunting lodge, the lodge offers access to an incredible combination of awe-inspiring heli-skiing and heli-boarding terrain, West Coast-inspired gourmet dining, a large outdoor hot tub, as well as a teepee sweat lodge/sauna. 

Gorgeous timber-frame chalets sit on the forest's edge, located just 150m from a pristine fishing river (yes, you can throw a line in) and surrounded by the peaks of the mighty Coast Range. And it gets better; the helicopters leave from right front of the chalets (unless conditions are better down valley)!

Located in the Great Bear Rainforest, Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is in one of the best grizzly bear habitats in the world. In late summer and autumn guests can often see bears wandering past the lodge or napping on the lawn!

Heli-ski with us in the winter, then come grizzly bear viewing in the summer.

Adventure, sightseeing and cultural experiences

There’s no shortage of adventure, sightseeing and cultural experiences in Bella Coola, so be sure to take some time during your stay to explore our inspiring backcountry and wildlife.

Whether you’re taking a rest day, you’ve reached your vertical target, or you want to wind down after the rush of your heli-ski adventure, our team can organize a range of things to see and do.

Spend an afternoon fishing the Atnarko and the Bella Coola rivers, or enjoy the fresh air with a hike in the old growth forest, through the valley, or over the Sir Alexander MacKenzie Grease Trail. Grab one of the mountain bikes available at the lodge and take a ride around the main road to enjoy our stunning views, or take a tour by heli or boat to the nearby hot springs on the coast of Bentinck Arm inlet.
