    Belarko Bear viewing has also been created by BC Parks. The station is located at a prime grizzly feeding spot on the Atnarko River. The station is open and staffed from mid-August to mid-October, when bears are active along the river banks. The Great Bear Rainforest on the central coast of British Columbia is a world-renowned wilderness eco-tour destination. It is one of the world’s few remaining old-growth temperate rainforests. It is also the home of coastal wolves, black bears, grizzlies and the unique Kermode “Spirit Bear.”

    In recent years, the mountainous terrain around (and accessible from) the Bella Coola Valley has become a publicized destination for heli-skiing, with a number of skiing movies filmed in the area, and local companies advertising access to 1.5 million acres (6,100 km2) of terrain.
