Welcome to Knight Inlet Grizzly Bear Adventure Tours at Knight Inlet Lodge in British Columbia, Canada. Enjoy one of the premier grizzly bear viewing spots in the world, set amidst the snow-capped peaks of Canada's rugged coastline.

Wilderness lodge specializing in grizzly bear and wildlife tours.

Knight Inlet Lodge offers wildlife viewing packages ranging from two to six nights for our spring, summer and fall bear viewing and eco-adventure seasons. All of our packages begin with your arrival in Campbell River, Vancouver Island and include a one night stay there.

You must stay the night prior to departing for Knight Inlet in Campbell River, Vancouver Island, B.C. as your float plane journey starts too early in the morning to make connections from anywhere. As there are no roads to our wilderness lodge a short, 25 minute, floatplane flight is the only way to visit.

 A low to moderate level of physical fitness is required for all tours including the ability to walk approximately 100 - 200 meters on uneven and potentially slippery shoreline. If you have any concerns please contact us prior to booking for a more detailed description.
