The Bella Coola River flows through the western part of the Tweedsmuir South Provincial Park. In the late summer Grizzly Bears take advantage of the salmon run up the Bella Coola River. The bears feed on the salmon to put on as much weight as they can to see them through the long winter.

All the images on this page were taken in the Bella Coola valley in early September. Many thanks to Cheryl & Steve Waugh who run the excellent Suntree Guest Cottages. An idyllic place to stay, generous hosts and invaluable local knowledge, we will be back!
