Driving to Bella Coola

From Vancouver, Bella Coola is approximately 1000 km (620 mi) north. Bella Coola is a 5 – 6 hour drive from Williams Lake (the closest large town). Hwy 20 brings you across the Cariboo Chilcotin plateau & down into the Bella Coola valley.

Williams Lake (Hwy 97) is a good stopping place to fuel up & gather any supplies. Roughly 4 hours on Hwy 20 is Nimpo Lake. Located just outside Tweedsmuir Park, Nimpo Lake is another good stopping place to fill the tank, stand up & stretch before the last leg. Nimpo Lake is known for it’s rental cabins that dot one side of the lake.

The Hill’ (Hwy 20, Tweedsmuir Park)

Just outside Anahim Lake (Hwy 20) is a remarkable section of highway that’s locally referred to as ‘The Hill‘. It’s a well maintained dirt road that has steep & narrow sections.

During steep sections, it’s best to put the vehicle in a low gear & just go slow. Narrow sections are single lane so it’s a good idea to take note of the many pull-offs in case of oncoming traffic.

Most people find ‘The Hill’ an exciting & scenic part of the trip.
