Tweedsmuir Park Lodge


Our British Columbia wildlife tour stayed at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, located in the southern part of the provincial park. It is hard to imagine a more picturesque location, nestled in a river valley. Accommodations are provided in 10 private cabins and dining and lounge facilities are available in the main lodge building. We were assigned the Caribou cabin, located on the right-hand side of the picture above.

Our cabin was spacious and comfortable, with a modern bath and even wireless internet. The staff was outstanding, making you feel welcomed and comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. The food quality was incredible, with a gourmet twist at every meal.

And you couldn’t beat the killer view. I took the picture below right from our front porch deck. This is a view of Mount Stupendous, shyly trying to hide its peak in the clouds.

I was rewarded with many gorgeous views, including a stunning sunrise.

I sat on the cabin deck one morning, leisurely drinking coffee and admiring the changing colors of the mountain as the sunlight cascaded down its face. What a wonderful way to start a day!

And the cabins near the lodge have a gorgeous mountain view as well, with a fishermen’s road that meanders down to the Atnarko River. We regularly spotted grizzly bears in this tundra landscape during the evening hours. You may notice a little brown spot on the left-hand side of the road. Yes, it is a bear patty, LOL.

We took a tour by Natural Habitat Adventures to experience this magical place. But you can also travel on your own and have the lodge staff arrange many different excursions for you, including helicopter sightseeing, float trips, hiking, bear watching, fishing, and helicopter skiing (in the winter). It is one of the few places in the world where you can see and experience such an adventure of a lifetime!


  1. What a little bit of heaven you enjoyed and I've enjoyed reading about it and seeing your pictures. The way you described the changing light on Mt. Stupendous was delicious. And I can laugh at bear patties and actually strain my eyes for a closer look. Ha!

  2. What an absolutely beautiful spot. I can only imagine how breathtaking that must be to witness first hand. It had to have been heaven to sit on that deck and take in the surroundings.

  3. Unbelievable! Almost too good to be true. Such beauty is truly better than riches! I can just smell the wood of The Caribou's interior ... I love that fragrance! And what a view to have with your coffee. Stupendous indeed.
