The Knight Inlet Lodge is located 180 kilometres northwest of the city of Vancouver. The lodge is not accessible by road, thus travel is by floatplane from Campbell River situated on Vancouver Island.
A short 30 minute flight brings you to the mouth of the Glendale River and home of the Knight Inlet Lodge. The lodge floats on large cedar log booms and accommodates 26 people in simple rooms, complete with private bathrooms.
This remote corner of British Columbia is home to one of the largest concentrations of grizzly bears in BC and it is not unusual to find yourself amongst up to 50 bears in peak season when the salmon are returning to the river.
Why We Like It
For its remote location and number of grizzlies. Knight Inlet is also great for those that would like to take part in a few more soft activities such as kayaking, whale watching and rainforest hikes in addition to bear viewing.
