With a spectacular location in one of earth's great wildlife areas, this floating lodge makes the Great Bear Rainforest it's home and invites you to share a unique opporuinity to view wildlife in outstanding natural surroundings. Accessible only by floatplane you are far removed from the bustle of daily life but modern conveniences have not been overlooked.
Almost completely self-sufficient and with a commitment to low-impact ecotourism, Great Bear Lodge is powered by wind, hydro and solar power which also ensures the wildlife is not disturbed in it's natural environment.
Each of the 8 guestrooms offer comfortable accommodation with a washroom containing a sink and toilet, although new for 2014 each guestroom will feature an ensuite bathroom with shower. The common area is the place to relax and make new friends and also where you will be treated to fascinating natural history presentations from the wildlife biologists. If you would rather take in the peaceful surroundings head out to the natural wood deck that wraps around the lodge, the perfect place to enjoy the silence accompanied by a chilled glass of wine.
During your stay you will embark on morning and afternoon bear viewing sessions, perfectly timed to coincide with when the bears are most active. Accompanied by experienced wildlife biologists you can observe bears roaming freely in their natural habitat as you float quietly by in a boat or from the viewing platforms positioned close to the estuaries. Between bear view sessions the activities continue with guided interpretive rainforest walks, boat excursions and sea kayaking or you may just simply wish to relax.
On your return from the wilderness, gourmet cuisine prepared from the freshest local ingredients awaits. With an emphasis on seafood, the food is plentiful and enjoyed with fellow guests around a large table.
