Stayed for 3 nights whilst tracking the elusive Spirit Bear. The Lodge team are great at getting you there and looking after you whilst there. Reception was efficient and friendly. Rooms had good facilities and amenities. Beds were comfortable. View from room was staggering. Breakfast was a good buffet, and lunches to go. Wifi was good. Would definitely stay again... More

We spent 3 nights at the incredible Spirit Bear Lodge safely tucked away from the noise and clamor of urban life. Moose, a member of the First Nation which owns the lodge, picked us up in Shearwater for 90 minute ride to Klemtu. He pointed out orca and humpback whales along the way. The manger of the lodge met us... More

The first thing that will impress you is getting to Klemtu from Vancouver. It's a magical journey into the heart of the Spirit Bear lands and one of the last truly awe-inspiring temperate rainforests of North America. As we gradually began to lift and peel away the layers of our busy daily grind, we found ouselves slowly relaxing into a... More

As other guest have said, this place is a boat ride (90 minutes) into a breathtaking part of Canada (The Spirit Bear Rainforest). The key word in that previous sentence was rainforest, so be prepared. Luckily, we only had drizzle on one day.The lodge supplies all the rain gear you need, so lighten your suitcase and leave yours at home.... More
