A 25-minute scenic floatplane flight from Campbell River takes you to a wild and remote area of the Pacific Northwest known as Knight Inlet. As the longest fjord on this coast, Knight Inlet welcomes guests with a spectacular natural habitat for wildlife set against a backdrop of dramatic snow-capped mountains, waterfalls and lush dense forests.
Knight Inlet Lodge has been featured in National Geographic Magazine, BBC Natural History Unit and Time Magazine and has won a TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award. The lodge offers guests the opportunity to relax while taking in the unspoiled wilderness.
Wildlife enthusiasts also can often see elusive wildlife such as seals, otters, sea lions, white-sided dolphins and whales, on the boat and kayak tours. Whilst Cougars, mountain goats, bald eagles, deer and black bears roam freely, it is the mysterious grizzly bears that inhabit this region that most come to see. Glendale Cove is home to one of the largest concentrations of grizzly (brown) bears in British Columbia. It is common for up to 40 bears to be within 10km of the lodge in the peak season (Sep-Nov), when the salmon are running up the Glendale River.
Guest safety is always of utmost importance. The team strive to help guests see the bears in their natural environment without having a negative impact on them.
