How to Get Here

“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:

Good

Round trip commercial flights from Vancouver – Williams Lake, with private ground transportation to/from camp.

It’s scenic drive across the Fraser River and Chilcotin Plateau and you will be amazed at the transformation from dry semi-arid forest into more lush and mountainous surroundings as we approach Chilko Lake and the Coast Mountains you flew over. It’s most common to see wildlife along the way and we will stop for a snack break during the drive through this scenic ranch country (4 hours).

$400 per person

Better

A one-way charter flight direct from Vancouver to the grass airstrip at Chilko Lake will take just over an hour, and start your trip off on cloud nine! This spectacular flight will have you soaking up the jaw dropping scenery over the Coast Mountains (our American neighbours call these the Cascades) and get you to Bear Camp sooner, so you can get your vacation started! Your return trip to Vancouver will be via private ground shuttle to Williams Lake, then a commercial flight to YVR.

(Flight options can also be reversed)

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.

Tsilhqot’in First Nations

“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.
