Bella Coola Valley Tourism opens Visitor Info Booth, launches new website

Bella Coola Valley Tourism’s Visitor Info Booth (VIB) is now open for the summer, 10 – 4 Monday to Saturday.

Bella Coola Valley Tourism’s Visitor Info Booth (VIB) is now open for the summer, 10 – 4 Monday to Saturday – again in the back of the Norwegian Heritage House in Hagensborg.   BCVT is pleased to have summer student Felicia Harris as the booth Attendant until the third week of August.  Drop by and meet Felicia, check out the VIB, and visit the historical House.  Also, new to the VIB site is BCVT’s first “stop of interest” sign, which depicts the Norwegian settlement of the Hagensborg area.

Anyone interested in volunteering to keep the VIB open on Sundays or for late August and early September is urged to contact Felicia at the VIB (phone 250-982-0092).

In other news, BCVT has launched its new and improved website at www.bellacoola.ca.  For maximum impact, the new look capitalizes on Bella Coola’s spectacular and varied scenery.  Its intuitive navigation makes the website a more user-friendly, more enjoyable experience.

New features include high-definition images, an interactive map, live weather updates and current conditions for the Hill.  A FaceBook travel community forum allows past and present visitors to get in touch and pass on information.

The website is available in the user’s language and is compatible with a wide variety of mobile devices, which makes www.bellacoola.ca a portable source of information about things to see and do in the area. Local businesses are encouraged to visit the site and consider joining Bella Coola Valley Tourism.

With summer fast approaching, the Nusatsum and Clayton Falls Creek Forest Service Roads are open to the snow line – which is quickly moving up near the summits, soon allowing access to the alpine.

The hiking trail to Odegaard Falls (Nusatsum) may be missing a boardwalk, and the trail beyond the big steel footbridge still bears damage and debris from the Great Flood of 2010. The switchbacks beyond to the falls lookout should be fine. The Forest Service is assessing the access. The bonus is that the falls can still be viewed from the big bridge or from the lookout along the road before the trailhead.  A 4 X 4 vehicle is recommended on both roads.

As for other trails and roads, if you have any updates for BCVT, please let Felicia know at the VIB (250-982-0092) or contact BCVT by email at info@bellacoola.ca.
