    Not To Be Missed
    If you visit Bella Coola and do not take the Petroglyph tour offered by Copper Sun Gallery you have missed the primary reason for going to this stunning part of the world second only to the bears in August and September. We had Zack as our guide and as a tour guide myself I was blown away by his detailed knowledge of the subject and the affable manner in which he passed his knowledge to us right down to a very personal drum and song performance. We saw a family doing the walk on their own and I could not help but feel sorry for them in not realizing how much fascinating information they were missing.

    impressive informative tour along ancient rock carvings
    we did a tour with a guide along ancient rock carvings with our teen daughter and my wife. the story of the site and the information about the history of the indigenous people in the Bella Coola Valley added so much to our trip and is absolutely something that should not be missed when you are in the area. the site itself is as impressive as famous ancient sites in Europe.

    Fantastic petroglyph tour
    We went on the petroglyph tour, it was really wonderful. The guides are friendly, know their stuff, and explain it well! Seeing these ancient carvings in such beautiful forest is something I'll never forget. If you're passing by Bella Coola, it would be a real shame not to do this tour!

    Petroglyphs and Nuxalk history.
    Today my wife, dog and I were guided through one of the sacred areas of the Nuxhalk. We started with the history and trauma of the tribe and their mythology. We then visited the sites of the petroglyphs and learned many of be stories behind them. This was all in the beautiful forested surroundings with a creek babbling in the background. Our guide, Nuhawhawta, was extremely knowledgeable and shared his passion in both word and song.

This was a highlight of our trip to the Bella Coola valley. The petroglyphs are so special. Our guide Zack was incredibly knowledgeable, and extremely talented in communicating the history, stories, and significance of the location. Thank you so much.

I can't say anything but amazing things about my 2hr petroglyph tour with our guide via Copper Sun Gallery & Journeys. He was genuine and approachable and his information about the petroglyphs and the Nuxalk people were so insightful. It was also a real privilege and an honour to be taken to such sacred places such as this.
Absolutely worth your money and more. So glad to support local indigenous tourism and can't wait to come back and do their totem and big cedar tours

It was a wonderful informative experience with our tour guide Mink. We were privileged to visit this sacred site and learn about the culture and history of the Nuxalk people. Recommended without reservation. Go - you will learn so much and leave with any preconceptions about indigenous life altered forever.

Chris and Copper Sun provided the perfect education and tour of the Petroglyphs and Totem Carving when we visited Bella Coola this winter. Chris is an amazing storyteller and really helps you understand the history of the land and his people. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is curious to learn more about the area and the history and culture of the Nuxalk Nation. First rate.

T'uka was an incredible story teller. He was intelligent, passionate and charismatic. I was thrilled to see the petroglyphs and I feel you get so much more out of the experience hearing the stories that go with each of the carvings. It is expensive.

The Petroglyph tour was really worthwhile. As a settler, the fact that we have access to see this sacred place and have knowledgable folks share the story and culture is really a privilege. Our guide, Sheldon, took us through the history of the area and his personal story and was very generous with his hard earned cultural knowledge.
Go on this tour and tip well!

Our guide was very friendly and the petroglyphs are worth seeing. Overall, I'm happy my 3 kids had the opportunity to visit this place. However, the reason I can't provide a stronger rating is due to the cost of the tour. I understand this is a small remote community that depends on seasonal tourism to support the economy, but the price ($400) for myself and my 3 kids was excessive and didn't provide good value. I've been very fortunate to travel to quite a few different places and see a lot of amazing sites. Expensive is ok, I've come to expect it, but this was beyond expensive in my respectful opinion.

Beautiful location, friendly guide and a very interesting place, they just need to readjust their pricing to provide better value.
