Itinerary

your will be transferred to the float
plane base for your scenic flight over the Queen
Charlotte Strait to the floating lodge. After a brief
introduction to the lodge you will go out on your
first Grizzly Bear excursion.

In the morning, you will be on the trail of the
grizzly bear again after some good coffee and
breakfast. A typical viewing session lasts three
hours. After a morning of adventure, you will
return to the lodge for lunch and a chance to
relax. Spend the early afternoon exploring the
surrounding area with a guide. A popular activity
is the interpretive rainforest walk, examining
bear sign and the general ecology of the area.
In mid-afternoon you will venture out to see the
bears before returning to the lodge for dinner.
On clear nights, the stars are amazing.

As your stay at the lodge continues, you begin
to settle into the natural rhythm of the valley.
The bears are generally most active in the early
morning and late afternoon hours, which is why
the lodge focuses their viewing sessions on
these times. Over the course of your stay you
will be taken to a variety of sites, depending on
the bear activity. For the afternoon recreation
today you may take a guided sea-kayaking tour of the estuary, or a boat cruise to explore
the glacier-carved inlet. Or you may prefer to
relax and enjoy the view from the lodge. The
Great Bear Rainforest is home to many animals,
including grey wolves, otters, black bears, mink
and bald eagles.

After your parting session with the
bears you will enjoy lunch at the Great Bear
Lodge. You will be returned to Port Hardy in
the afternoon between 4PM and 6PM. Due to
unpredictable weather conditions for flights
around the lodge and Port Hardy you have a
nights accommodation included in Port Hardy.

Airport (South Terminal).
