Itinerary

Day 1 Fly to Vancouver

Day 2 Vancouver to Campbell River
Your day begins with a scheduled flight across the Strait of Georgia flying to Campbell River, your overnight base. This coastal city is located on the East coast of Vancouver Island and known as the ‘Salmon capital of the world’. Capture the spirit of Campbell River with a stroll in the sea breezes on Discovery Pier and you might see a salmon, eagle, or a whale. Take in views of Discovery Passage, Quadra Island and, in the distance, the rugged Coast Mountain range of mainland British Columbia. If you fancy your hand at a little salmon fishing you can cast rod off Discovery pier and perhaps you will catch a big one. If you don’t fancy trying to catch your own then try one of the many local restarauntsfor freshly caught fish and shell fish.

Days 3 Campbell River to Knight inlet
From Campbell River you will be taken on an exciting floatplane ride to the remote Knight Inlet Lodge, where you will enjoy full board accommodation for the next night. Set on a floating lodge, all of the rooms include full private facilities and views of the cove or the shoreline (keep an eye out for wildlife strolling by) Each day offers fantastic bear spotting in the beautiful secluded setting with experienced local experts. It is not uncommon for there to be up to 50 bears within 10 kilometres of the lodge in the peak fall season, when the salmon are returning to the river. With plenty of opportunities for bear spotting excursions and wildlife tracking expeditions, you'll have the best chance possible to see these magnificent creatures and other wildlife in pristine, natural habitats.

Bear viewing is not the only activity that is on offer during your stay at knight Inlet. Take one of the fully guided Rainforest walks that heads up the nearby valley, where you will discover moss covered old growth trees and stunning waterfalls. Take out a Sea kayak and drift quietly along looking for bears foraging amongst the shore line, maybe you will be lucky enough to see new bear cubs, fresh from their winter den.

There's nothing like a good meal after a day of adventure. Knight Inlet Lodge has a variety of dining options, so there's always something for everyone. The dining room is home to bountiful and sumptuous West Coast and Continental cuisine, with delicious daily specials, fine wines and sinful desserts. They often feature crab, salmon and prawn harvested fresh from the pristine glacier fed waters of cove. With fresh ingredients flown in daily and expert chefs, the lodge provides a dining experience that receives almost as many compliments as the bear viewing!
