We stayed in mid September when the weather was glorious. This was to be the highlight of our Canadian holiday, and we were not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by Angus and his staff and from then on we felt as part of a family. On our first day, we went to see the grizzlies which was a unique experience. We must have seen 20-30 in the 2 hours we were at the viewing platform. Then a wonderful picnic lunch by the seashore. Back at the lodge, we enjoyed the quiet solitude of sitting in the garden before dinner prepared by Madeleine. And what a wonderful cook, beats any first class restaurants. We had the cabin by the seashore, and had the most fantastic views of the night sky there lying in bed with not a sound only the lapping of the water at the edge of the shore. Our second day, was spent with Glen whale watching and again saw a very large number of whales, some very closeto the boat. In all our travels worldwide, this was one of the most amazing experiences and with such dedicated staff. We came away feeling we had been very close to the natural world and the silence which is so hard to find these days. This is definitely a trip that should be taken if you are in the area.
