There is no excuse to not book a tour to Knight Inlet if you are visiting British Columbia. Go there - now! Everything about this tour is remarkable and unforgettable: the pristine setting, the views, the staff, the service, the GRIZZLY BEARS. This is tourism at its best.

If there is one luxury in life you should treat yourself to it is the experience of Knight Inlet Lodge. The staff are amazing.

Very lucky to be able to visit a place like this. Wonderful remote location with breathtaking scenery and stunning opportunities to see grizzly bears close up. Excellent staff and the flight in in is pretty good as well! Don't expect a restful visit but if you can go do so.

We had a six night package (which included 1 night in Campbell River). All their tours include that one night stay - so if you have a two night package you only get one night at Knight Inlet - one couple who arrived when we were there didn't realise that). On reflection we think that five nights at Knight Inlet... More

We visited here with two friends and what a place. The journey here was brilliant in a little float plane with fantastic views along the way. It was a bit drizzly so there were fantastic low clouds. We were greeted and shown to our rooms. We were in number one which was right on the end of the block and... More
