Grizzly Bear Viewing at Knight Inlet Lodge

Grizzly Bears of Knight Inlet Lodge

2-4 night grizzly bear viewing experience from £1,250pp
inc. flights and accommodation

Knight 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. In the fall the bears feed heavily on the returning salmon to the Glendale River and can be seen in large numbers from the specially constructed viewing platform. 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.

“We had the holiday of a lifetime in Canada.

Thanks so much for your meticulous planning and perfect tour of this amazing part of Canada – it was even better than I hoped! Knight Inlet was absolutely stunning and we were so lucky to see grizzly bears, a black bear close up, bald eagles, ospreys, deer and lots of amazing wildlife. The drive from Jasper to Banff with the green lakes and snow covered mountains was drop jaw beautiful! The whole trip was incredible and will remain a lifelong cherished memory for all the family.”
