British Columbia Bears and Wildlife
An amazing wildlife viewing adventure – this is an awesome wilderness experience with all the comforts. It provides a glimpse into the life of some of our continent’s most iconic animals… grizzly bears and bald eagles, and it’s just an absolutely fantastic good time!
Arrive in Vancouver mid-day in time to catch another smaller plane for a quick hop over Georgia Strait. Arrive in Campbell River in the early evening and settle into your room. Comfort Inn Campbell River
A morning seaplane flight delivers you deep into Knight Inlet for two and half days of immersion into the lives of the wildlife. Naturalists are on hand to answer all your questions, to direct your viewing experiences, and to provide evening conversation about the day’s sightings. Activities may include (weather permitting) excursions into Johnstone Strait for marine wildlife viewing, bald eagle and other birdlife viewing, and, of course, daily excursions by either boat or foot to watch the grizzlies. Daily schedules are arranged with optimum wildlife viewing in mind. Check out Knight Inlet Lodge on Facebook for weekly photos and updates. You will want to be there!
Accommodations include modest, yet comfortable rooms featuring queen-sized beds with private washrooms and showers. The dining room features fresh, local ingredients prepared in West Coast cuisine, included fine wines and decadent desserts. (The lodge will try to accommodate most dietary preferences, however, this is a remote lodge with limited storage. Please advise our staff at the time of reservation if you have dietary restrictions.) Knight Inlet Lodge – 3 nights (1B,2FB,3L,3D)
Say goodbye to the lodge and wilderness as the seaplane arrives to return you to Vancouver Island. Spend the final evening in Nanaimo, the “Harbour City.” For the adventurous, go out and walk this picturesque harbor-side town in search of the perfect Nanaimo Bar (a local sweet, not an adult beverage establishment)!
