Grizzly Bears of Knight Inlet Lodge

4 Days/3 Nights Roundtrip Vancouver

Price from$3,263

Knights Inlet is a 100 km long fjord carved by glaciers in the coastal mountains. This pristine wilderness is the native habitat of the Grizzly Bear. Every spring when the bears come out of hibernation, they can be seen from a boat on the banks of Glendale Cove eating sedge grasses, mussels and barnacles that abound in the cove.

Situated 60 kilometres from the mouth of the inlet is Knight Inlet Lodge. The floating lodge is tucked into Glendale Cove, which offers one of the few protected anchorages in the inlet, and it is here that you will begin each day's adventure.

The lodge is an assortment of 5 modern cement floats containing 18 guest rooms, a dining room, a lounge, an interpretive centre and support buildings. Most of the rooms have two queen beds with a private bathroom. With the addition of a cot they can accommodate four in some of the rooms. Most of the guest buildings have lounges with wood burning stoves in them, for relaxing in the evening or on a cool day.
