I agree with all that has been said about the wonderful experiences at Knight Inlet Lodge. This was the last part of 5 weeks of travelling around Canada & Alaska and although we had had amazing experiences and viewed gorgeous secenery, Knight Inlet took top billing. Seeing the bears in their natural habitat so close was absolutely the most unbelievable... More

I stayed here Solo in Oct 2015 and despite not being a good traveller survived the float plane trip over (only just) and it was worth every bump and drop ... To be honest for me the lodge, the food and the weather just disappeared into insignificance the first time I saw the Bears. I can't emphasise enough how important... More

The floating lodge which is nestled in spectacular scenery is clean, cosy and comfortable. The food is home cooked and just what's needed after a day on the... More

Travelled from Australia in October 2015 specifically to visit the grizzly bears of Knight Inlet. We enjoyed the 4 night package with our first night in Campbell River followed by a short 25 minute seaplane flight to the lodge the following morning. Our room at Knight Inlet Lodge was very clean & comfortable overlooking the water. All the staff were... More

There's lots to tell you about Knight Inlet Lodge, Glendale Cove, BC, Canada. We flew into Campbell River for a one night stay then float planed into KI the next. This is the only way to get to the lodge apparently. We had 2 pre-selected excursions on the first day; an estuary tour on a small boat where we saw... More

My husband and I traveled here in early October 2015. Everything from the organization at the Comfort Inn Hotel in Campbell River to the float plane to the lodge itself was top notch. The staff at the lodge were very friendly and welcoming after what would have been a long summer (tourist season.) We have been to a couple of... More

We had an amazing time and saw lots of bears, whales and Eagles. Rooms were very comfortable although we hardly seemed to be in ours. Activities were well organised and we appreciated the provision of jackets and wet weather gear. It suited us perfectly that it was casual and unfussy. The staff were great, knowledgeable and enthusiastic which I'm sure... More
