We discovered the unbelievable beauty of the Knight Inlet years ago and were desperate to find a way to create an outstanding tour around it. Why so special? Well, this unique floating lodge sits right in the heart of the B.C. wilderness, only accessible by seaplane. Being untouched by human hands, the rest of the fjord is brimming with wildlife and it is all for you. With only a handful of people allowed to stay at the lodge at any one time, you explore in small groups to maximise access to your guide and minimise your impact on the surroundings, meaning you can get up close and personal with the wide array of incredible wildlife living around the fjord.
Spending time observing the habits of the resident Grizzly Bears is an unforgettable experience, the power and grace, the playfulness and sense of family is a joy to witness. Add to this a fjord brimming with seals, dolphins and the occasional whale that you can kayak amongst and you have a completely unique wildlife adventure that is a once in a lifetime experience. Until you go back that is!
However, B.C. is packed with beauty, so we wanted to help you experience as much as we could fit in. You will explore the vibrant city of Vancouver, the wild, relaxed Vancouver Island and its stunning capital Victoria. And after your break from the modern world in Knight Inlet, we showcase the grandeur of the Sea-to-Sky Highway, full of majestic natural highlights.
This adventure is all about the location, about getting you to experience wild, beautiful places that not many other people have ever heard of. As soon as you touch down in Vancouver, you will be in our very capable hands. We will transfer you to Vancouver for your stay there and help you explore the city. From there you will cruise through the scenic Gulf Islands to Victoria, the capital of Vancouver Island before we transfer you to Campbell River where your seaplane will take you to the glorious middle of nowhere in Knight Inlet. Then after exploring this wild haven, it is back down to Vancouver by seaplane for a final couple of nights, and a world-class tour of Whistler and all the beauty of the Sea-to-Sky highway, before we take you out to the airport to meet your onward flight.
All the accommodation we have hand-picked for this tour are of outstanding quality. In the bigger cities, we have chosen 4-star accommodation and Knight Inlet is a beautiful floating resort surrounded by natural wonder.
