“A fantastic place to be”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

The Bella Coola Valley is an amazing and fantastic place to be for vacation. Untouched nature / wilderness, spectacular views and much more. Also the beautiful drive over the 453 km long B.C. Highway 20 - also called "Freedom Highway" or "Chilcotin Highway" - is it absolutely worth to travel to the Bella Coola Valley!

“paradise”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

bella coola is a remote town in the middle of a gorgeous valley. if you like the quiet outdoors, don't miss it.
visit the museum in bella coola and the heritage house in hagensborg. do not miss out on the bear tours on the river (although expensive) spectacular. go for a hike in tweedsmuir park. it is a one and a half hour drive to the start of the trail but well worth it.

“check it out”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

it's a little difficult to find information when you arrive in town. there's no one lined up to sell you tours etc...
Check out the Petroglyph Gallery. The owner Mark is very knowledgeable about the Nuxalk Nation and will help you find guide and visit some artists. The gallery is great and has art for all price ranges as well as tshirts and fleece.
The Tallho Cannery is well worth the trip.
The Eagles Lodge is great.
