Holiday Overview

Grizzly Bears of Klahoose - a superb Canada wildlife holiday.

Located within the heart of Desolation Sound, Klahoose Wilderness Resort resides upon Homfray Channel between the Coast Mountain peaks of British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast and the Northern Islands of the Salish Sea known to many as Desolation Sound. This is a resort that reflects the Klahoose traditional values and offers an immersive exploration into this pristine region rich in diverse wildlife, wilderness, and cultural significance.

Desolation Sound has been referred as the “Serengeti of North America” for good reason, given its abundance of large marine and terrestrial mammals. Orca and humpback whales, porpoises, harbour seals, and dolphins can be seen throughout the year. Bald eagles, osprey, and great blue herons are just three of dozens of avian species that reside in this region. Inlets of the Desolation Sound are famous for one of the most robust populations of grizzlies in the world. Grizzly bear viewing season is August-October. The spectacular Lodge at Klahoose Wilderness Resort provides an intimate environment and impressive 6,100-square foot timber structure hewn of local cedar. Four spacious guest rooms in the main lodge and three separate cedar single cabins can accommodate on average 14 guests to a maximum of 26 guests at full capacity.
