Tighten up your life jacket and get ready to be transformed. Start your tour in a 40 foot catamaran then transfer to an environmentally friendly hydrogen fuelled jet boat. You zig and zag down the river until your guide turns off the motor and tells you to scan the shoreline.
You see movement and realize it’s a bear. It raises its head and you lock eyes. This is your very own personal wild connection. The bear looks away and you realize you’ve been holding your breath. You watch as it forages in the grasses for berries and scans the water for nearby fish. In the spring, there may be an entire family enjoying their day out by the water.
A World of Wild
The North Thompson Valley has a robust population of black and grizzly bears that live just beyond the tree-line. Beyond the river, the Monashee Mountains stand watch over the wildlife. Watch for majestic moose foraging along the water, or shy deer as they peek through the trees. Trout swim beneath and around your boat, while eagles and ospreys ride the air currents above. Wildlife abound here and this is your front row seat to untamed Canada’s natural wonders.
Eat Like a Bear
After a day out on the river, head over to the dockside River Safari restaurant. The Forest Table is where you can literally eat like a bear. Berries, salmon, mushrooms, elk and buffalo are just some of the ingredients used to create unique and flavourful dishes.
