Wow Bella cool a seems like my dream destination to live because I have the same dream of living outside of the United States ( preferably in Canada)in the wilderness. I hope the ferries don't close off the route because I need to go there that is my plan
Hi. Bella Coola is a great choice to live if you enjoy the wilderness. You can buy or rent a cabin in the rainforest but still be just a few minutes away from a nice grocery store, Credit Union, Hospital etc. The Ferry cancellation would suck, but there is a small airport here and a road. Living here isn’t for everyone. Self sufficiency is more important than community spirit which leaves many transplants here feeling “alone”. The town of Bella Coola is awesome! It doesn’t start to wake up until 10 or 11AM, has no chain stores, and no traffic lights. There are as many dogs on the street as people. Everyone waves or says hello. The town is at the end of a spectacular fjord and is surrounded by 10,000 ft mountains. The nearest city is a long 6 hour drive away through rainforest, alpine and desert scenery. Look us up when you get here! You can stay in our log cabin or our float house at the wharf.
