The Travel

Travel to the Lower Dean River Lodge begins at Vancouver International Airport's South Terminal where guests board a Northern Thunderbird Air's pressurized "Beech 1900D" charter to Bella Coola. This typical 1 hour flight is over some of British Columbia's most spectacular mountain scenery. Arriving at the Bella Coola Airport guests and baggage are flown to the Lower Dean River Lodge by a West Coast Helicopter's 6 seat, turbine powered Eurocopter A-Star. This flight normally takes 35 minutes.
