After decades if guiding hunters in and around the great bear rainforest of the Bella Coola area Lenard Ellis has turned to guiding and housing folks like you and me. A visit to the Bella Coola area should be on every avid naturalist bucket list and no one is more equipped to guide you than Mr. Ellis. You will need a place to stay and there is no better than the remarkable cabins on Lenard's property. Each is make of local wood and had every amenity for a one day or one month stay. The cabins are set right in the rainforest and it is not uncommon for the local fauna (bears) to roam the property. The craftsmanship is exceptional and you comfort is insured.
There are a number of tours. Day tours can be by boat or by van. Each will have you visit the scenic areas in around the Bella Coola valley. Multi day tours are also available for the serious naturalist. Mr. Ellis has a lifetime of knowledge concerning the area and its sights and wildlife. The time my wife and I spent with Lenard was priceless. I hope everyone who reads this review gets the chance to visit the valley and spend time with Mr. Ellis. By the way we did see grizzly bears up close near the waterfront.More
