I have lost my heart to Knight Inlet. As another reviewer so aptly stated...there are not enough superlatives to describe my adventure there. I have lost it to a region in the world that I thought never existed...a superbly pristine and magical place that exists today only because of the tireless efforts of people like those at Knight Inlet Lodge...

Our adventure with our precious west coast grizzlies was everything it promised to be. Hailing from Vancouver B.C. it was an exhilarating and humbling experience being re connected with our Majestic Wilderness and getting up close and personal with our Fur Friends. As local we were considered "Exotics" on this trip as our travel partners consisted mostly of folks from...

There are not enough superlatives to describe how absolutely fabulous this place is. We took a three night package, one night at Campbell River and two at the Lodge itself and take away nothing but amazing memories. The accommodation was very comfortable, the food plentiful and imaginative and the facilities outstanding. The staff were warm, welcoming and experts in their...

Spent 3 days here with teenage children. Saw loads of bears and whales. Food filling and tasty. Also did the rain forest walk and kayaking. Good vegetarian food. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Access is via a float plane. Can get quite bouncy if it's windy.

Whilst our experience at Knight Inlet Lodge promised so much, overall I was incredibly disappointed with the experience. Due to bad weather our seaplane flight to the lodge was delayed by five hours meaning we only had between 3pm and 9am the following morning before we had to leave. Given it costs around £800 per night per person, this was...

This was recommended and did not disappoint. An amazing flight out on the sea plane with great views. The location of the floating hotel is just idealic. The rooms are perfect: comfortable, spacious and clean. We just did the 24 hour stay. Our timetable was set out for on arrival. We had 2 wildlife views and one boat trip into...
