If you want a natural bear viewing experience, Grizzly Bear Ranch can provide the location and expertise and hopefully the bears will be in the area. They have Julius the owner, together with Paul, Ollie, Tamara and our own Brit' bear spotter, John, who will safely guide you to places where hopefully bears will be seen. Nothing is guaranteed, everything... More

And indeed all those superlatives from previous reviewers paint a truthful and accurate review of Grizzly Bear Ranch. For us we chose GBR as a complete contrast to a contrived experience (and there are many on offer), we wanted wild and natural. As a consequence of wanting that uniqueness it required patience, persistence and mostly hope! Glimpsed sighting in early... More

Words fail me but I'll give it a go. Our three days on the ranch was probably the most magical thing Wendy and I have ever done, and as others will vouch, we've done a lot. Julian's passion for Grizzly bears and Kirstin's for her home cooking goes without question. But what makes the experience unbelievable is how John (the... More

Like all before us we have to say what an amazing experience we had during our stay in September. Julius & Kristin made us feel so welcome, the food was absolutely fantastic, Krisitn is amazing in the kitchen and was up every morning bringing us coffee and a wake up a call at 6am. Julius and his team are so... More

We have just had a fantastic grizzly bear watching experience. Within an hour of our arrival at G.B.Ranch we had seen our first bear on the riverside catching fish. Over the next days we saw several more bears in different locations. Harry the grizzly, being sighted the most. Our cabin..Logjam, was sited on the river bank and our views were... More

Our experience was similar to that of others who have commented on GBR - excellent. The location is in a beautiful area of BC - bit out of the way, but worth the drive and the effort. You get great scenery, majestic mountains, and picturesque lakes and small towns. The staff are very knowledgeable about the bears as well as... More

This was an amazing wildlife experience. Grizzly bear, Apple, and her cubs were the stars of the show but we would never have seen her without the expert assistance of Julius, Kirstin and their ultra professional team. They kept us safe, entertained and informed. The entire visit from start to finish, from lake level to high Alpine was absolutely fantastic.... More

I visited the Grizzly Bear Ranch in September 2014 with my wife and daughter (13 yo). In every respect it is a great experience that I will remember forever. The location is beautiful, the atmosphere welcoming and the food excellent, with a focus on fresh local produce. The relatively remote location (1 hour drive out of Kaslo) and the highly... More

Just back from a visit to Grizzly Bear Ranch. Thanks to Julius and Kristen and there staff for making this a great trip. It was a great balance between educational and fun. As has already been posted, Bear viewing is done with great respect and the information on flora and fauna in general from the very knowledgeable guides was much... More
