New from Bon Voyage for 2017 – ideal for families or even the most intrepid adventurers – is Bear Camp at Chilko Lake, just a one-hour flight from Vancouver or Whistler.
In the heart of British Columbia, Bear Camp is a unique and hospitable experience, originally built in 1954 as a hunting and fishing camp, but since re-created into a funky, adventure and wildlife viewing destination with bathrooms, a snug and cosy lounge and a history-steeped dining hall with a full bar.
Situated at the headwaters of the Chilko River, the waterfront camp comprises of deluxe safari tents built on top of wildlife viewing platforms, 16 feet in the air. These platforms stretch for more than 400 ft so, during the salmon spawning season in late summer and autumn, visitors can sit and watch grizzly bears feasting right below them.
Activities on offer are endless and include hiking on hundreds of accessible trails, mountain biking, horse-riding, fly-fishing, kayaking, rafting and learning the art of bushcraft.
As an example of price, a seven-night holiday - departing between August 27 - 8 October 2017 (peak bear viewing season) - costs from £5549 per person. This twin share price includes return flights from the UK to Vancouver, private charter from Vancouver to Bear Camp (lands on a grass strip!), accommodation in a deluxe safari-style tent, all meals (chef prepared), all activities and the services of professional guides.
