A truly amazing experience! From the moment we drove into the Ranch until we left - Julius & Kristen, and their fantastic team, worked around the clock to provide us all with an experience never to be forgotten. Even though a combination of seasonal change and heat threw us a curve ball for seeing the beautiful bears in their natural... More

What can one say about this place that hasn't already been said, except I agree with every positive review that has already been posted. I guess all I can add are few of the experiences that we had at our time at the ranch, ok the weather was exceptional warm for the time of year that limited the amount of... More

From the enthusiastic welcome from our hosts Julius and Kristin, to the bears both black and grizzly, owls, hummingbirds, osprey, more bears, deer, Canada geese,more bears, trips into the... More

This was our first time to Canada and our first bear viewing experience and WOW what an experience it was! We came in September to view the Grizzly Bears. The education about the bears, activities to view the bears, the accommodation, company and food were all fantastic! Julius, Kristen and their team all went above and beyond for us to... More

We began our quest to see grizzlies in the wilderness by investigating the options in Alaska. However a young American woman who had stayed with us for a couple of years in NZ was very keen for us to visit her in Winthrop, US, adding the possibility of exploring the Yellowstone and Teton Parks with us. We cottoned on to... More

This was our first bear watching experience and it exceeded our expectations. We loved every minute of our stay from bear watching on foot to rafting down the river. We highly recommend the Grizzly Bear Ranch to anyone who wishes to see bears (and other wildlife) in a natural environment. Julius , Paul, Ollie Tamara and John are all clearly... More

Having read other reviews where the trip was discussed as being excellent, we feel the same. We saw bears, had lots of education and advice provided, ate and drank well and had a fab time. The 3 days are not long enough though to absorb the atmosphere and really take it all in...need to go back! Don't go expecting to... More

I found this place on trip advisor and read all the reports and couldn't quite believe the reviews, were they really that good? Since returning to the UK and again having read all the reviews we really can't add any more value to what has already been written. Everything that everyone has said is true, it is the most fabulous... More

Kristen and Juliius provide guests with a luxurious yet rustic experience. Accommodations and meals will make you smile as Kristen is an accomplished cook and the cabins have all the amenities you would expect from a well appointed hotel suite. I am from BC and was impressed and delighted by the variety of activities they offer. The guides, the evening... More
