Bella Coola Tourism

I've had some questions about where to stay and things to do when you visit the Bella Coola Valley.  You should definitely follow through on the thought of visiting - the Bella Coola Valley is a great place to visit.  When to visit is all a matter of what you want to do and what your interests are.  Between now and the fall the main visiting periods are; now for chinook salmon fishing in the river, July and August for a bit of fishing and general sight seeing and hiking, and September and early October for nice fall colours and coho salmon fishing.  The best period of the summer is typically the first two weeks of August when there is a pretty good chance of a serious Pacific high pressure ridge setting in which can give us some nice weather. Often there is a nice week or 10 days at the end of June and the first week of July (Bella Coola Rodeo weather). The mosquitoes in the Rainbows are still pretty vigorous then, but by Aug 15th the bugs are facing cool nights and even frost in the Tweedsmuir Parks Rainbow Mountains so a good time to hike if you want to do that.

There are lots of options for places to stay or campsites, and the best source of information is the Bella Coola Valley Tourism website which has lots of good information and information on the various commercial accommodations.  Grizzly
