Vacation Paradise on the Central Coast of British Columbia.

The Bella Coola Valley is a perfect place to spend your vacation.

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 & swim among salmon.

This valley has a temperate climate that encompasses the Coast Mountains, glacial rivers and inland regions.

Yet because Bella Coola lies 100km inland from the outer Pacific, it has much less rainfall than the coast. July through September tend to be dry and sunny.

Journeying to the Bella Coola Valley is an adventure.

The Valley stretches 80 km (50 mi) and can be reached by road from Williams Lake, by scheduled flights from Pacific Coastal Airlines & chartered air service, or by BC Ferries or private boat.
