Bear Camp is a awesome experience. I took my family with two teenagers and we loved all the activities, scenery and guides at the camp. Brian and Ashley are wonderful hosts. Gord, Whitney and Bob are awesome guides and made our trip fantastic. Luca and the Michelle's made dinner something to look forward too. You will eat really well at Bear Camp. The day hike to the top of Tullin was beautiful, horseback riding and the two days of rafting is a must. One stretch of whitewater for a solid hour is natures ultimate amusement ride. This is a great family. Our kids disconnected and got reconnected with the wild.

Hey Scott, thanks for the kind words. It was delightful to host you and your family and I am glad you enjoyed the final hoorah on the rafting extension. What a way to end the week! Looking forward to connecting somewhere again and please send us the final glamping project shots! Cheers Brian (and Ashley)

Enjoyed the spectacular Chilko Chilcotin Fraser River rafting trip with ROAM. The 8 day adventure included Class V Bidwell rapid followed by 18 miles of continuous Class IV rapids in Lava Canyon with wave after wave of rafting excitement. Also rafted the waves of the Gates of Mordor and Big John Canyon. Trip is located in the remote wilderness with canyons, hoodoos, pine trees, and glacial blue waters. Campsites have no other visitors besides ROAM guests. Dinners were delicious and filling, with dishes like grilled salmon, make-your-own burritos, grilled steaks, upside down pineapple cake, and tiramisu. Lunches were sandwiches. Saw many bald eagles. Visited Bear Camp which is a beautiful wooden lodge built on stilts on chilko lake. Went inflatable kayaking, hiking, and played lots of fun camp games. The guides were experienced, hard-working, and friendly. $2995 USD + $400 flight RT Vancouver to/ from Williams Lake.

Mother/daughter trip with my 14 y.o daughter, who is not "outdoorsy" but seriously reconsidering it after this amazing experience. We enjoyed kayaking, hiking, horseback riding and river rafting, all led by very experienced guides. Brian and Ashley lead an amazing group of guides who work very hard to make sure each guest has a once in a lifetime experience they will want to repeat. Safari tents very comfortable, with heated down duvets. Gourmet meals were prepared by chef Luca and far exceeded our expectations for yumminess and presentation. Highly recommend this travel experience and can't wait for another opportunity to seek new adventures with ROAM.

One of the best experiences of my life. The staff are amazing, the scenery and different experiences are memorable and the food was unreal. Not a camper so this took me out of my comfort zone and could not have been better. Rafting, kayaking, heli hiking, paddle boarding...we did it all. Was a great place to totally disconnect for a couple of days. I will definitely be back. Thank you bear camp!

Jeff - thanks for your kind words. It was awesome having you and the YPO group come and explore with us. I wish the weather had been a tad more cooperative but it's proof that the people and place make the fun. We'll see you in LA or up here next year. Cheers Brian

The camp was very remote, you have to fly to get to it. The water was so clean you could drink it, although freezing. Beautiful country for Hiking. The room was nice, much prefer the "glamping" over sleeping on the ground! The rafting was enjoyed by everyone weather they are experienced or a beginner.

Kelly Thanks for kind review and spending time with us at Bear Camp and on the Chilko River. Glamping is a great way to introduce people to the wilderness. Having comfy beds, hot showers and chef-prepared meals in a lounge and dining hall, makes this camping experience very decadent. It's even more remarkable that we can still drink our lake and river water but rest assured, the taps at Bear Camp go though 4 filters and UV treatment just to be on the safe side! Cheers Brian
