Grizzly Bear Photography and so much more!
While staying at Tsylos Park Lodge on a Grizzly Bear Photography Trip you have a number of other activities to choose from if you decide to take a day or an afternoon off from the photography ! The choice is yours!
Drift Boat Trip
Take our Mackenzie drift boat down the beautiful Chilko River. On the tour you will have a chance to see a variety of wildlife as we drift silently 17 miles down the river. Along the way you may also see Eagles, Ospray, Mule Deer and Moose. ( This may or may not be available depending on water levels in the fall)
Our Lodge Riding is geared towards the intermediate rider, but there are a couple of days that are slower paced and guest with little or no horse experience can take part in.
One of our guests’ favourite trips is up Mt. Tulin. A 6 hour return ride takes you to the top of Mt. Tulin approximately 7000 ft above sea level. On top you will enjoy lunch overlooking 360 degree views of the coastal mountains and the Chilcotin Plateau. It is absolutely stunning.
If you have a partner who loves to ride but not photograph, they can reserve the seven night horseback riding package.
Canoeing or Kayaking
We keep a number of canoes and kayaks at the lodge for an afternoon paddling the river. With the salmon in the system it is beautiful just to float along and watch the salmon and listen to the many species of birds along the river.
We have many horse trails starting at the lodge so if you like to hike, there are many trails to choose from, but at this time of year we do not recommend hiking along the river as this becomes the domain of the Grizzlies.
Grizzly Bear Paw Castings
Take home a cast of a grizzly paw print. Our guides will show you how to take your own casting of a grizzly bear print as your own personal souvenir.
At the lodge
During the day our guests are out fly fishing, horseback riding or grizzly bear viewing, but at the end of the day everyone joins up for a pre-dinner drink which is full of stories and laughter from the day. You will love the comfortable atmosphere and make some great friends while here. After a tasty dinner, guests soak in the hot tub, hang out on the deck viewing a million stars, or there is a variety of card games to play around the open fire.
