Full description

After an overnight stay in Campbell River you will begin your adventure with a memorable floatplane transfer to Knight Inlet. Take in aerial views over the stunning BC coastline, with its many inlets, islands and distant snow-capped mountains. Your first glimpse of Glendale Cove and the lodge itself highlights the remote wilderness location in which you will be staying.

On arrival at Knight Inlet Lodge you'll enjoy a welcome orientation before setting off on your first adventure. During your stay you'll be able to pick and choose your preferred activities, with longer stays offering more opportunity to explore further or spend more time with the bears. Enjoy a choice of scenic boat cruises, guided walks, kayaking across the inlet, and of course viewing grizzly bears from the boat or from specially designed bear-viewing stands. You may also be lucky enough to see black bears, bald eagles, seals and whales during your stay.

This package is available as 2, 3 or 4-night options, each including an overnight stay in Campbell River (Vancouver Island) on Day 1. Whilst a 1-night stay at Knight Inlet is rewarding, we strongly recommend 2 or 3 nights at the Lodge in order to immerse yourself into this great wilderness and maximise your wildlife-spotting opportunities. We can also arrange air transfers from Vancouver. Contact us to find out how this can fit into your holiday's plans.
