Summers in Northern British Columbia are beautiful. Long days under a warm sun in some of the most beautiful and rugged landscapes in the world. At Bell 2 Lodge, things don’t stop once the snow melts. Last Frontier Heliskiing runs a year round operation at Bell 2 Lodge.

What was once a way station along the Stewart-Cassiar Highway is now a full service wilderness resort on the eastern edge of the Alaskan Pandhandle. Bell 2 is ideally situated for a relaxing stopover for folks coming to and from Alaska and the Yukon.

If you’re heading into the north this summer or working your way back from an epic road trip through Alaska and the Yukon, take a day or three and stop at Bell 2 Lodge. The  Skeena Mountains and the Bell Irving River form one of the most dramatic backdrops of terrain in British Columbia.
