“The most incredible places are often the hardest to get to”, but we have a few tricks up our sleeve, to get you here faster, and in style! And in typical fashion, you’ve got options here too:
DRIVING YOURSELF? – It is possible to drive into Bear Camp on your own; we are about 4 hours from Williams Lake (last hour or so is on a gravel road).
Note: if you are interested in arriving this way, we will provide you with detailed directions, there is no cell (or accurate GPS) service in the area.
“The River People” – The Nation of indigenous people is made of six bands (communities) that span an area of over 400,000 hectares. The population is fewer than 1,200 people but spans back over 400 generations and most residents still exist in the same way they have for centuries, relying on the salmon and natural landscape to subsist their modest living.
In June 2014, after two decades in the Supreme Court of Canada, the declared land was awarded back to the original inhabitants of the area and declared The Tsilhqot’in Nation the legal title owners of the land. We are grateful to share the land with this aboriginal community, and are always pleased when members chose to share pieces of their history and culture with us.
