Bella Coola Vehicle

off road car rentals bella coola


In the early days, a few locals offered rentals in Bella Coola featuring a handful of compact cars. Those cars operated under one strict rule

NO driving on gravel roads. Fast forward to 2010 and Steve Waugh thought: "This is absurd!" How could anyone miss out on Odegaard Falls, Purgatory, Tote Road, Hunlen Falls, M. Gurr Lake, or Clayton Ridge? Let’s give them a real car so they can drive to those places!


Steve envisioned a fleet of rugged SUVs for exploring the Bella Coola Valley and a dedicated vehicle rental business was born. The first vehicle in the fleet was Unit 010, a reliable Jeep Cherokee Sport that's still part of the fleet today. Currently we boast over 20 meticulously maintained, repurposed vehicles for a variety of purposes.
