The journey to Bella Coola is an adventure in and of itself. At the eastern end of the valley is Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, a haven for outdoor recreation. Relax with a fishing line in hand, explore a hiking trail, drift a river, hire a guide to watch wildlife, tour the petroglyphs, go horseback riding, mountain biking, air-touring, heli-hiking, - the options for outdoor adventure are only limited by your imagination. In winter, the mountains guarantee deep powder for heli-skiing, heli-boarding and snowmobiling as well as ample snow for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
With financial support from Northern Development, Bella Coola Valley Tourism has implemented a marketing strategy to diversify the area's economy away from its traditional dependancy on the forest sector towards tourism. The initiative promotes all of the incredible recreation options available to tourism through creation of a new regional tourism brand identity, a new website, promotional materials, and maps.
