About this spot
Chilko Lake and the surrounding wilderness areas are known for their high population of grizzly bears, making it an excellent location for bear photography. However, it's important to approach this activity with caution and respect for the animals.

There are several locations in Chilko that are popular for bear photography. One of the best places to observe and photograph bears is at the Chilko River, where bears come to fish for salmon during the fall season (September-October). Another popular location is the Tsylos Provincial Park, which has a designated bear-viewing platform where visitors can safely observe and photograph bears in their natural habitat.

If you're interested in a more immersive bear photography experience, consider a guided tour or a multi-day wilderness adventure that includes opportunities to photograph bears from a safe distance. These tours often provide access to remote locations that are not open to the public and offer a unique perspective on the natural beauty of Chilko and its wildlife.
