Day 7

It’s time to hit the river with your guide for a morning drift on the Atnarko River in search of more bears! The bears are most active in the morning and evening and it’s a great time to enjoy a quiet float.

A nutritious lunch will be served at the lodge before you head off with your guide to further explore Tweedsmuir Park.
