Knight Inlet lodge floats on a river in a remote area of the Pacific Northwest, just north of Campbell River. The lodge lies close to the mouth of Knight Inlet, from which it gains its name, and is nestled into Glendale Cove which is home to one of the largest concentrations of grizzly bears in British Columbia.

Floating on the longest fjord along the B.C coastline and surrounded by striking mountain peaks, Knight Inlet Lodge is a truly special place. The lodge is a one story building consisting of five cement floats, and is finished with local cedar board, inspired by the architecture of west coast British Columbia. Knight Inlet Lodge boasts two spacious decking areas, one featuring a cosy fireplace, so guests can unwind in the open air while admiring the stunning setting.

The lodge's 18 guestrooms are complete with queen size beds, ensuite bathrooms and a couple have the addition of bunk beds, making them ideal for families. All of the rustic rooms feature alder hardwood furniture and offer glorious views over the Glendale Cove or the surrounding shoreline, where bears are often spotted.

The homely dining room at Knight Inlet Lodge serves dishes inspired by both West Coast and Continental cuisine. The delicious menu often features fresh crab, salmon and prawns, harvested from the surrounding glacier fed waters of Knight Inlet.

Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty which is home to a wealth of wildlife, there are endless adventures to be had whilst staying at Knight Inlet Lodge. Enjoy Grizzly Bear Watching Tours on both land and sea, hike through the lush rainforest or go on a guided kayaking tour in the estuary. Travel around the inlet on a Marine Wildlife Tour, discovering the varied sea life of the area, such as seals, porpoises and dolphins.

From July onwards, these tours have the added attraction of possible Orca sightings and in September there is the chance to spot humpback whales as they journey from Alaska to Hawaii.

Why we love it

Knight Inlet Lodge is known as Canada's premier grizzly bear resort with good reason - up to 50 bears have been counted roaming within 10 kilometres of the lodge at one time.
