Overview

Book
In the heart of British Columbia just an hour flight north of Vancouver, Bear Camp offers the Chilcotin regions most hospitable and unique accommodation experience. Situated at the headwaters of the Chilko River, the waterfront camp is comprised of deluxe safari tents built on top of wildlife viewing platforms and a spacious dining area and lounge overlooking the river. Exploring the best of what the region has to offer, this multi-day adventure touches on a variety of adventure disciplines: Canoeing or stand up paddleboarding on a crystal clear lake, horseback riding in snow-capped mountain ranges, hiking endless trails, biking remote roads and roller coaster single track, fishing for record trout, wildlife viewing grizzly bear sightings are common on many trips and inflatable kayaking or rafting a glacial waterway.

Our adventure begins with a breathtaking flight from Vancouver over the towering mountains and massive glaciers of the Coast Range. After arriving at the beautiful wilderness of Chilko Lake, we spend our days exploring the countryside and valleys that have made this region famous. Situated at the border of Tsyl-os Provincial Park, the north end of Chilko Lake, and the headwaters of the Chilko River system, we will indulge ourselves in a variety of adventures at our doorstep. The principal activities will be paddling on Chilko Lake, hiking in the alpine terrain and wildflowers among glacier-capped peaks, paddling the crystal-clear Chilko River, and horseback riding through pristine forests. The balance of the days will be filled with options like fishing for world famous rainbow trout, exploring Chilko Lake by boat, SUP and foot, biking, wildlife viewing or simply reading a great book by the fireplace. Each day, we will return to the comfort and charm of Bear Camp to indulge in fine wine and great food, all while surrounded by 10,000 foot peaks in this seemingly endless roadless, wilderness area.

We were warmly welcomed into Bear Camp by the amazing team of guides. Spent five amazing days decompressing in some of the most remote and scenic wilderness. My son (10) and I bonded rafting down the Chilko river, fly fishing Kyles secret honey spot, and canoeing to remote lake islands. The highlight was horseback riding up to the peak of the potato ranch mountains where we encountered a momma grizzly and her cubs. The food was exceptional, the views from our luxurious safari tents breath taking. Thanks to the ROAM team for a memory that will last a lifetime.

We've done a couple of great rafting trips with them, and many mountain biking trips but were thrilled to find a trip with a bit more variety for the week. Rafting, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, hose back riding, and/or doing nothing. There wasn't a fixed schedule of events, so the guides were able to accommodate various interests and the weather. There were enough guides and options that not everyone had to do the same thing every day. Want to relax on the deck with a book while somebody else goes kayaking, and another group goes horseback riding? No problem. These trips always have good food, but with a fixed kitchen the chef was able to really pull out all the stops.

What a great staff! They were cheerful, knowledgeable, kind, amenable, genuine . . . need I say more?! We did more activities in one day than we normally do in a week! We were encouraged to try, but always had our "just in case" exit plans! We saw a grizzly on our first morning . . .checked that off of the bucket list! We laughed so much on this trip! The scenery was amazing! The stories were entertaining! We will miss everyone at Bear Camp, as well as the lifestyle, dearly!
