Grizzly Bear Viewing

Located in the Great Bear Rainforest
Knight Inlet Lodge, 240 kilometers (150 miles) northwest of Vancouver, lies in the southern reaches of one of the last intact temperate rainforests on earth, the Great Bear Rainforest – home to Indigenous peoples, ancient forests, and wild bears since time immemorial.Location
Your Home Away From Home
Arriving at the lodge by floatplane from Vancouver Island in the morning, your adventure begins right away! We will provide you a lodge orientation and safety briefing, then head straight out on the first tour of the day.
After returning to the lodge and enjoying a delicious lunch, you will participate on two more tours, including bear viewing.
At the end of your day come and relax in the privacy of your room, or join other guests in the lounge or on the water front deck before dinner.
Our guest rooms feature queen size beds and private bathrooms with showers. Some of our rooms have capacity for families of up to 4.
All rooms enjoy either views of the inlet, or the shoreline behind the lodge, where bears are often spotted.
Seafood like crab, salmon or prawns are harvested fresh from Knight Inlet allowing our Chef to offer the most glorious West Coast cuisine! Served with fine wines, our tasty menu is locally sourced from Knight Inlet, plus other fresh local ingredients flown in daily.
With advance notice, we can accommodate most dietary needs.
