Big River Lakes | Bear Sanctuary

Cruise its waters with your family on a pontoon boat, enjoying the scenery and searching for bears who come to fish for spawning salmon, sometimes snatching the lively fish as they leap from the water.

After lunch, head out to try your hand at fishing on local rivers teeming with salmon, trout and char, and lined with towering fir trees.

Back at your lodge tonight, a cosy celebration of the day awaits with a locally prepared treat, delivered to your room just before bedtime.
