During the winter months you can enjoy cross-country skiing, snow machining, snowboarding or skiing on the local hill in Tweedsmuir Park, skating at the outdoor rink or taking part in the weekly volleyball and basketball games. Summers are filled with hiking the many trails, kayaking or fishing in the rivers or ocean, horse riding, biking, rock climbing, or just taking a dip in the refreshing pools along the river. There is something here for every outdoor enthusiast.

Belarko Bear viewing has also been created by BC Parks. The station is located at a prime grizzly feeding spot on the Atnarko River. The station is open and staffed from mid-August to mid-October, when bears are active along the river banks. The Great Bear Rainforest on the central coast of British Columbia is a world renowned wilderness eco-tour destination. It is one of the world’s few remaining old-growth temperate rainforests. It is also the home of coastal wolves, black bears, grizzlies and the unique Kermode “Spirit Bear”.

In recent years, the mountainous terrain around (and accessible from) the Bella Coola Valley has become a publicized destination for heli-skiing, with a number of skiing movies filmed in the area, and local companies advertising access to 1.5 million acres (6,100 km²) of terrain.

Bella Coola offers a well-known Music Festival on the third weekend of July as well as a Rodeo on July long weekend.

Vegetation : This property has good growing soil, plenty of clean water, fresh air and summer sun exposure. This property is level, all usable and lends itself perfectly to a small hobby farm or large gardens.
