I had been looking at the B.C. Aboriginal Tourism sites ever since our trip to NW B.C. a couple of years ago, and also to Haida Gwaii. I kept coming back to the Spirit Bear Lodge and thought it would be an amazing experience, especially if we could actually see a Spirit Bear. I had seen incredible photos of this... More

Spirit Bear Lodge is in an excellent location at Klemtu in the Kitasoo/Xai Xai's territory as it is central to all potential wildlife/bear viewing areas. The Lodge itself is very comfortable and the food is of an excellent standard. However, what makes it all special are the quality of the staff, guides, and people associated with it. Tim and his...

This is the trip for you if you are interested in visiting the Great Bear Rainforest, wildlife viewing, delicious locally sourced sea food or being connected to the local community. The small, intimate lodge and all of its guest rooms have stunning views overlooking a pristine channel in Klemtu. It's the perfect place to unwind after a day of scouting... More

It’s been almost a year since I visited Spirit Bear Lodge and since then I’ve struggled to find the words to write this review. I suppose I should start by saying it was the best holiday ever—but it was more than that. In your time with the team at Spirit Bear Lodge you can expect to see 19 bald eagles... 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
