Situated in the foothills of Mount Finlayson with breathtaking views of Victoria's seaside harbour, Bear Mountain Resort offers the best of both worlds: idyllic natural setting only minutes from the allure of a sophisticated and charming city – Victoria, BC. In a spot that only nature could have conceived, Bear Mountain Resort is a rugged and verdant mountainside landscape with vistas of the Olympic Mountain Range, the Strait of Georgia and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
