Knight Inlet Lodge

Search for Brown & Grizzly bears at Knight Inlet Lodge

Thanks to its location in a completely unspoilt wilderness, Knight Inlet Lodge has built a well-deserved reputation over the years for being one of the best places on the planet for viewing brown or grizzly bears in their natural habitat. Nestled in the only protected cove on a 160km-long inlet for which the property is named, this remarkable floating lodge’s only neighbours are predominantly bears, mountain goats, otters, seals and eagles!

Guests at Knight Inlet Lodge are accommodated in 18 cosy, cedar-panelled ensuite rooms warmed by wood-burning stoves. All have views onto either Glendale Cove or the shoreline behind the lodge, often frequented by resident bears. The shared dining room is where sumptuous West Coast cuisine is served, along with fine wines and indulgent desserts. Often on the menu are locally caught crab, salmon and prawns, harvested fresh out of the waters of Knight Inlet.

Grizzly bear viewing is the prime attraction of course. This activity takes place from boats along the shoreline from May to mid-August and from specially built platforms alongside salmon spawning channels from mid-August to mid-October. Other activity options include whale-watching tours, rainforest walks and sea-kayaking.
