Experience the magic of grizzly bears in the wild

Knight Inlet Lodge is an Indigenous-owned wildlife viewing destination in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia. Staying here, you will spend your days watching magnificent grizzly bears and other incredible wildlife, and your nights enjoying fine dining and accommodation in the most spectacular natural environment.

When not hibernating, grizzly bears are abundant in the pristine wilderness around Knight Inlet Lodge. Starting in April, both black and grizzly bears begin emerging from hibernation and head to the cove and the estuary to feed on succulent spring growth. Spring also offers a wonderful opportunity to see new born cubs as they venture out into the natural world. In spring and summer, the lodge offers bear watching tours by boat, allowing you to experience these wonderful animals without disturbing them.

The fall season begins in late August when you will travel to viewing stands, specially constructed to provide a safe and comfortable viewing base. Pink salmon begin surging their way up the Inlet, attracting dozens of grizzlies who converge on the spawning channels to fatten up in preparation for the coming winter.
