Had a great few days with Kristin, Julius and the guide team. Their passion for the pristine wilderness in which they work and reside is infectious. Kristin prepares fresh wholesome food to a very high standard on a daily basis. We enjoyed Kristin's fare all the more having built an appetite whilst spending our day's in an ethically sound quest to view wildlife in the most natural of settings. Nothing staged here you either see animals or you don't. We were fortunate to see a Grizzly bear, Wolf, Elk, Deer and numerous Golden eagles. We stayed in one of the well appointed cabins situated on the banks of the Lardeau river. The cabins have all you require to enjoy this experience including a wood burner with an endless supply of firewood. If you visit in the autumn season take some thermals as the rafting can get chilly but I would contend that your rapt expectation of what is to come at each bend in the river will suffice to keep warm. We both hope to return in the near future and recommend the Grizzly Bear Ranch unreservedly.
