This is almost a trip of a lifetime! Catch a floatplane from Campbell River in the north of Vancouver Island to Glendale Cove - arrive at Glendale Cove and within an hour you're out in a small boat ( six of you) looking for brown bears on the water's edge , bald eagles and other local wildlife in an amazing...

This was on my bucket list to view the bears in the wild and Knight Inlet Lodge didn’t let me down. We saw the bears feeding, playing and swimming as well as lots of other amazing wild life. The crew there were absolutely amazing and so helpful. My friend was on crutches and allowances were made for her which was... More

Rain or shine, this place is gorgeous! You are surrounded by beautiful BC. Knight Inlet Lodge is full of natural beauty and wildlife. My husband and I went mid October and we had numerous opportunities to see seals, eagles and bears. The moment you land, they have you scheduled for one of their numerous activities. Whether it's heading to the... More

Just go here! We went to hopefully see and photograph grizzly bears. We were NOT disappointed. From the float plane trip into the Lodge over the BC coast (so lucky to call this home), to the food served, to the friendly and informative staff, to the quality of the protective rain gear to the comfort of the rooms we were...

What a place!! From the moment you arrive, it's go go go however, there is plenty of opportunity for downtime. One thing to remember with Knight Inlet Lodge, is that it includes so much. Food is great and each night a complimentary wine is served with dinner. Knight Inlet Lodge are great at catering for special needs. The array of... More

This was one of the best experiences in Canada - seeing grizzly bears feeding on hundreds of salmon, up close and personal. I'm just not going to be able to upload enough photos to TripAdvisor to do this justice, but, dear reader, that's probably a good thing, as I took hundreds and hundreds of photos whilst there and you'd doubtless...

We stayed at Knight Inlet Lodge for only one night in August and had the most amazing time. From the moment we touched down on the sea plane to the 24 hours later when we left, every minute of our time was fulfilled to the maximum to try and see grizzly's. Once you arrive and you have had a brief... More

We spent two nights at Knights inlet Lodge and loved every minute of it. The float plane in was a wonderful way to see the amazing scenery and the welcome was awesome. I wished I had stayed longer and been able to see the Orcas. The staff were enthusiastic and very knowledgable and I will never forget seeing the Grizzly... More

The memories will last a lifetime! The first time a grizzly bear looks you up and down, from close range, you will know that you made the right choice to come here. The cubs are sooooo cute. We spent two nights at the lodge and it was the highlight of our trip to Canada. The staff are amazing! They are... More

My 3 night stay at the lodge was just not long enough.! The seaplane trip to the lodge is stunning, the welcome from the staff, along with their helpfulness and enthusiasm is just wonderful. My room was at the back with no view and is basic but it was clean, warm and comfortable and I was only in there for... More
