Given the other great reviews, how do I describe just how fantastic my stay at Grizzly Bear Ranch last week (October 2012) was? Watching bears has been something I’ve wanted to do for over 20 years, so as long as I was lucky enough to see at least one, I would have been happy. I did not expect to meet... More

My husband and I stayed at the Grizzly Bear Ranch in mid October of 2012, and the both of us can not wait to return. The ranch exceeded our "high" expectations  in every possible way. The ranch is situated  in the middle of no- where, but... we were far from roughing it. The accommodations were cozy and comfortable and the... More

We visited Grizzly Bear Ranch in late September; specifically visiting at this time to catch the salmon run and choosing GBR for the unique, personal wildlife experience. The setting in which we were able to view the bears and other wildlife with minimum disruption to them, either from the riverbank or on the river itself, made it feel all the... More

My wife Veronica and I had waited 9 long months for our visit and it was so worth the wait! I'm not sure that I can add much to what has been said previously - the accomodation and food are superb and the location is spectacular. Julius and Kristin are great and obviously passionate about bears. The same came be... More

I'm not going to take up a lot of words on this. The other reviews say it all and I completely endorse what others have said. We saw bears, but even if we hadn't (Julius rightly says that it is up to the bears!), it would still have been a great experience. Julius, Kristin and the guides are so knowledgable... More

We spent 3 nights (9-12 September) and will never forget it. Unbelievable river and scenery, great people with perfect attitudes. Accommodation and food also excellent. I thought that the rafting would be a wet and cold experience but thanks to the equipment provided it was neither - just spectacular - I recommend it to anyone. Saw 3 grizzly bears, 1... More

No apologies for repeating earlier reviews but this really was just a wonderful experience. My wife had wanted to see 'the bears' during our trip to Canada and after some research I came across the GBR. Well it sounded Ok on the website but would it meet my high expectations? Well it didn't, it exceeded them. The cabin was fabulous... More

I have just read the last few reviews and I feel very emotional as it has bought back such wonderful memories. This is the most special experience we have ever had on a holiday. I totally agree with all the previous comments. Julius, Kristin and Lily looked after us superbly. They made us feel like we were very special. They... More

My wife Sarah came across GBR's website late last year and we immediately knew it was the place we were looking for. We were not disappointed. We've just spent a superb four nights at GBR. Julius and Kristin are great hosts and we were in food heaven with Kristin's cooking. There were plenty of lovingly prepared and tasty dishes. We... More

I originally stumbled across the website for Grizzly Bear Ranch last year when looking for bear viewing places on the coast, and it looked like exactly the kind of small and personal, non-commercial place we would like. Then when I then checked TripAdvisor, the unanimous 5-star rating from reviewers convinced me to change direction inland and make reservations immediately for... More
