Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort is an intimate family-owned and operated resort in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia on Canada’s rugged west coast, accessible by floatplane or helicopter. The remote location, tailored itineraries and unparalleled hospitality offer guests extraordinary wilderness and wildlife experiences by land, water, and sky. The resort, tucked away at the base of 5,000-foot Mount Stephens, has grown over the years to nine spacious-yet-cozy cabins, all carefully constructed with the surrounding environment and the comfort of guests in mind. Running through the heart of it is a beautiful cascading waterfall supplying both clean drinking water and green energy. Here, guests discover the magnificence of the region, with abundant wildlife and pristine landscapes from lush rainforest and river valleys up to heavenly mountaintops and 10,000-year-old glaciers. Adventures and daily activities offer guests access to 50,000-square-miles of breathtaking wilderness.

We have just returned from our second visit in a year. Covid has helped us get there, it is in our province. Again, we chose to stay 7 days as there is so much to soak up and we also like to take time to unwind. Nimmo is just the 'best kept secret' and we are so glad we have found time to visit and 'become part of the family' instead of always heading off in the world exploring far away places. There is so much attention to detail and care taken in all aspects at Nimmo be it at the lodge or out on activities. So much to do and see, depending on your mood, energy level and weather, we love to also just spend time at the lodge soaking up the surrounding nature and quietness in luxury with its ever changing tides and colours. The food is out of this world and the accommodation so comfy and spacious not to mention the heavenly beds wrapped in linen. Nothing is too much or not possible here. We will always make time from now to visit.

Hello Moira, You really are part of the family at Nimmo Bay now! Thank you for visiting us again and for taking the time to explore your own backyard this year. Covid has been hard on tourism and we are so grateful to the amazing folks in BC and across Canada who have supported their local treasures and helped us get through this strange time. Your visit means the fantastic crew of people at Nimmo stay busily employed, the business keeps operating smoothly and we keep being able to show people our incredible "neighbourhood"! So, thank you for finding this "best kept secret" and we can't wait to have you back!

Nimmo Bay welcomed our group like we were the most important guests they've ever had. It's the way they make every guest feel. Everyone will have their own unique connection and experience with time spent here. Options for adventure and relaxation are abundant. Over the few days, you could see our group visibly relax further each day. The staff is outstanding, they are subtle behind the scenes and somehow always ready to improve your experience just a little more whether it's as simple as a blanket at the floating fire pit, a cocktail creation based on what you like or extraordinary efforts to fulfill a request. It may be a special occasion trip for many, however is well worth saving for. The location and environment is amazing, the food fantastic and the team so accommodating, friendly and caring. Nimmo Bay is the place where everybody knows your name.

We came to Nimmo by our own boat for a few days to stay on site and be spoiled. And we certainly were. We were not easy guests to take on adventures as we have been boating, kayaking, hiking, sup, in the area. But the amazing staff found new adventures for us everyday and were able to offer a last minute spectacular helicopter flight in the evening where the visibility was endless, well past 100km on top of Mnt Benedict in our 360 degree view hiking the last bit to the peak from the glacier where we landed. The food and service was outstanding. Thank you for great memories.

I thought I was going on a birthday holiday with my sister for the weekend. This was not a holiday; it was a complete reset. I really thought that when the Covid closures happened that I had reframed and re-assessed my priorities. My weekend at Nimmo took this to a whole new level. I have never in my adult life felt so ‘looked after’. All of my needs were met without me ever having to think about what those needs were : from food, to warmth, to safety, to footwear, to comfort. I never had to think about a thing. The guides were so incredibly knowledgeable. And not just ‘there’s a humpback, or ‘there’s a bear’, but in their unwavering awe and respect for our fellow beings and the natural environment that we share. We felt that we weren’t simply spectators, but that we were a part of a whole, and that we do not dominate but that we share this amazing wilderness. I have never before in my life experienced this. I have never felt such a part of the whole. The food at the lodge was ample, various, and delicious. The somellier Kyle was able to predict exactly what to pour into my glass. The guides : Dallas, Andy, Mike….your reverence and quiet confidence put me in a place where I could do nothing but appreciate. No fear; no hesitation; only love. Shauna with my decaf coffee every morning, Will with the plan for the day, and Dom with his confident constant presence and fascinating chatter. I wish that everyone could experience Nimmo. If they did, we would all reconsider our counsumer choices. We would all know what it is to be part of this ecosystem. We would all come back. I’m already planning my return to Nimmo. Hopefully very very soon.
