Holiday Overview

Knight Inlet is a 100 km long fjord carved by glaciers in the coastal mountains. This pristine wilderness is the native habitat of the Grizzly Bear. Every spring when the grizzly bears come out of hibernation, they can be seen from a boat on the banks of Glendale Cove eating sedge grasses, mussels and barnacles that abound in the cove. In the fall the grizzly bears feed heavily on the returning salmon to the Glendale River and can be seen in large numbers from the specially constructed viewing platform.
