Grizzly bears of Knight Inlet Lodge

Knight Inlet Lodge floats amid soaring mountains, lush forest and clear waters at the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest. Season depending, you might watch huge grizzly bears flip spawning salmon from the river, tend their cubs or feast on summer berries. Yet there are also whale, orca, dolphin and bald eagle to see. You'll spend your first night in the Campbell River settlement on Vancouver Island, fishing for salmon in the salmon capital of the world. Then enjoy a seaplane ride to Knight Inlet Lodge and two nights’ full-board accommodation on this four-day extension to our Canada adventures.

Vancouver - Campbell River

Canada is a wide, wild country and it gets wilder as you head west. A short but scenic flight brings you from Vancouver city to Campbell River on the north shore of Vancouver Island. This settlement is renowned as the salmon capital of the world, perhaps the ultimate place to pick up a rod and line and haul in a flapping fish.

Campbell River - Knight Inlet Lodge

Board a seaplane to the mouth of the Glendale River and the remote Knight Inlet Lodge. This miniature village floats in a sheltered cove amid the vast expanse of green dubbed the Great Bear Rainforest. Grizzly bear flock here to feast on salmon which gather in some of the densest concentrations in BC. Search for them by boat with your expert guide. From late August, viewing stands overlook the river where they feed.

Knight Inlet Lodge

Captivating they may be, but Knight Inlet Lodge has more to offer than grizzlies. Bald eagle glide above the old-growth forest in the Kwalate Valley. Dolphin, sea lion, seal and whale frequent the Johnstone Strait. From mid-July, the Robson Bight Marine Orca Whale Sanctuary is home to 16 orca pods, while bears feast on berries in forest clearings. Grizzlies tend to arrive around mid August in time for salmon-catching season.

Knight Inlet Lodge - Vancouver

Enjoy one last chance to watch grizzly bears in the morning. Then you'll board your plane back to Campbell River, where you'll pick up a commercial flight back to Vancouver. Your British Columbia adventure continues from there.
