We travelled to the Granch (as we now fondly refer to it as) during our trip to Canada in October. The experience has left us with nothing but amazing memories. Since coming home we perused the recent Tripadvisor reviews and photos out of interest. We...More

Thank you for jumping to our defence. It really is very kind of you. I think what is important is that guests coming to the ranch have an appreciation of what we offer, but also of what we don't offer. The bears that we view...More

Everything about Grizzly Bear Rach was great. Kristin and Julius, the hosts, are first class and all of their support staff - guides, cook, helpers - were excellent. Even poor weather and a low sighting of bears didn't detract from the experience. We must return...More

That would be great. We have a 5 day/5 night spring holiday that includes several full days of activities including a trip out on a wilderness lake in a Zodiac, a walk up beyond the snow line into the high country to look for grizzly...More

If you wish to learn more about bears and in particular how to behave in their environment in a safe and respectful manner; and if you wish to learn more about this Canadian mountain wilderness, flora and fauna, then this is a trip worth making....More

Thanks Barry. Glad to have been of service. You'll also be happy to know we have just taken delivery of several large boxes of fairly luxurious slippers. You'll have to come back and try them out! All best wishes from the grizzly gang,

Please do come again! Loved having you stay. Come in the spring when the black bears are out and we travel far and wide viewing different animals. With grizzly hunting now banned we can watch those bears feeding on the avalanche slopes. Or even in...More

My wife and I have just returned from a trip to Grizzly Bear Ranch and it was an excellent experience in every way. It's true, as others have commented that it would be nice to have some kind of 'ice-breaker' on the first night at...More

Thanks for the lovely review. I remember the encounter on the gravel well - lots of fun and, as you say, just the right blend of exciting and thrilling. A close encounter like that, though not everyday, is a great way to keep an old...More

We also went in October and the rafting was pretty gentle but heaps of fun. Ollie was fantastic and looked after everyone (he did most of the hard work of paddling too!). You get a full safety brief beforehand. At that time... More
