Hiking & Skiing

The Bella Coola Valley has an extensive network of hiking trails that range from easy to moderate. Guided rainforest hikes are often part of bear viewing tours, and most lodges have some hiking options. More adventurous travelers can soar above the tree line and explore the peaks of the Coast Mountains on a heli-hiking trip in spring and summer, or a heli-skiing trip in winter.

Not only do local guides serve as welcoming hosts, they offer a wealth of information about this area, the wildlife, the history, and local cultures. Activities cannot be pre-planned and are dependent upon weather conditions and wildlife activity in the area. While it is likely you will see an abundance of wildlife on your hike, there are no guarantees. Your guide will advise you of trail conditions best suited for hiking and wildlife sightings.
