We are sorry to say that we will not be offering the
Camping WIth Grizzlies package for the 2020 Season

We look forward to offering this amazing experience in 2021

The floating glamping lodge, set in the heart of the Cariboo Mountains’ grizzly country, is in a quiet bay on the deepest fjord lake on earth near the mouth of one of the major salmon spawning rivers.  From the floating lodge experience a wide diversity of incredible experiences that include exceptional bear and wildlife viewing, birding, walking safaris through the rare interior rainforest with trees over 1000 years old, kayaking, forest bathing, hiking in rich boreal forests and alpine, exploring unique ecosystems with rare plants and spectacular wild flowers.  

The floating glamping lodge equipped with luxury wall tents gives you 360 degree mountain views where you can see bears and other wildlife from dawn to dark.  And don’t forget a view like this ensures the brilliance of the nighttime skies where the stars that brighten the heavens are only dimmed when the Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis dance across the skies.  This is the ideal place to disconnect from one’s busy everyday life – reinvigorate and re-energize as you feel the freedom and exhilaration breathing the fresh pure mountain air as the everyday stresses of life quickly ebb away in the peaceful quiet of this mountain paradise.


The tents are fully equipped with a relaxing décor, comfortable beds supported on handmade log frames and eco-friendly bathrooms with running water, showers and compost toilets.  Enjoy chef prepared meals from freshly sourced local food products.


Connect with the wild side of nature...

...in the wilderness back country of the Cariboo Mountains. Quesnel Lake is the deepest fjord lake on earth and sits at the heart of a rare ancient interior rainforest. Its clear waters are fed by the many surrounding mountain rivers and streams that originate high in mountain peaks in the ancient icefields.

On bear viewing excursions you will marvel at this ancient forest with gigantic western red cedar trees over 1000 years old as much as you will marvel at the iconic wild mountain grizzlies as you make your way to bear viewing sites on the river. The lush vegetation is reminiscent of an ancient age. Listen to the wilderness, the mountains and the forests – hear them speak to your soul as your adventure unfolds. Hear the creeks and streams tumbling down the mountainsides voicing the pure ancient wisdom of mother nature. Hear the multitudes of birds singing and chirping, the scurrying of small creatures, the voice of the wind sighing through the trees or just listen to the golden silence. Feel the cool winds as they swirl from  mountain peaks to softly stir the ancient forest.

From the glamping lodge you have:

  • Magical 360-degree mountain views, star gazing and northern lights at night; wake to the haunting early morning call of the loon.
  • Grizzly bears and salmon on wilderness rivers by jet boat, wildlife, birds and nature.
  • Walking safari through rare ancient old growth forest to grizzly/wildlife viewing sites.
  • Hiking from old growth forest through boreal forest and into the alpine.
  • Kayaking the world’s deepest fjord lake, exploring ancient old growth forest and limestone caves.

  • Over 30 years experience guiding the wilderness traveller.
