Great Bear Lodge

Great Bear Lodge is located 50 air miles from Port Hardy, British Columbia. 
The fully self-contained floating lodge is situated at an outstanding wildlife viewing location. 

Great Bear Lodge

This is a place of spectacular beauty where one can still find the silence and solitude of another era.
From this location Great Bear Nature Tours operate their Grizzly Bear viewing programme. The BBC used the lodge as their base while filming for the series Secrets of Our Living Planet.

The charming floating lodge has eight bedrooms each with ensuite bathroom and shower. 
The common area is a comfortable place for relaxing and listening to natural history presentations from our wildlife biologists.

The wind and solar powered lodge is in keeping with the owner's commitment to low-impact ecotourism. 
Natural wood decks surround the lodge, a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying the beauty of the scenery.

Dining in the wilderness: Wilderness-gourmet meals await you at the lodge on your return from the wilderness. 
The Lodge uses the freshest possible local ingredients and all organic food when it is available. 
A typical dinner might feature freshly caught salmon roasted on a cedar plank with a marinade of maple syrup, mustard seeds and balsamic vinegar. 
In between bear viewing sessions you will be able to join a guided activity such as an interpretive walk or a boat excursion or you may choose to relax with a book from the extensive library. 
The Lodge will be happy to cater for all dietary restriction and preferences.

The Great Bear Lodge is located in rich grizzly bear habitat in the Nekite Valley. 
The sitting room is a perfect place to relax in front of the fireplace with a book from our extensive natural history library. 
Your hosts will prepare wilderness-gourmet meals during your stay, using the best local seafood and produce available. 
Enjoy a glass of wine on the deck at night as you watch the moon rise over the mountains.
