The Southgate River at the head of Bute Inlet provides the winding tour route down glacial green waters cascading off surrounding mountains. The glacial flow originates from the Homathko Icefields, the largest in BC at 770 square kilometres. Adjacent to the Great Bear Rainforest, this river expedition is unique in its accessibility and remoteness at the same time. The tour includes a boat trip to the head of historic Bute Inlet and a helicopter flight into our starting point on the river. Marvel at the views of amazing waterfalls, glaciers and mountain ridges. We have many opportunities for fishing, hiking and wildlife viewing along the way. The river valley has abundant wildlife, including grizzly bear, wolves, deer and eagles. Great meals prepared by a red seal chef, professional guides and a spectacular river valley to explore at a natural leisurely pace.
Included: Use of waterproof gear bags, tent (one for each 2 guests), sleeping bag and pad, helicopter and boat transfers, use of fishing rods & gear, all riverside meals, limited wines and micro-brewed beer, splash jackets and pants, lifejackets.
