Great Bear Lodge
Great Bear Lodge is located 50 air miles from Port Hardy, British Columbia. The fully self-contained floating lodge is situated at an outstanding wildlife-viewing location. This is a place of spectacular beauty where one can still find the silence and solitude of another era. The Grizzly viewing programme is operated from this location.
The charming floating lodge has just five bedrooms (below right). The common area is a comfortable place for relaxing and listening to natural history presentations from the lodge's willdife biologists. Each bedroom has a washroom, with hot showers located downstairs. The wind and solar powered lodge is in keeping with the hosts' commitment to low-impact ecotourism. Natural wood decks surround the lodge, a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine while enjoying the beauty of the scenery.
Wilderness-gourmet meals await you at the lodge on your return from the wilderness. Only the freshest possible local ingredients are used, and this is all organic food when it is available. A typical dinner might feature freshly caught salmon roasted on a cedar plank with a marinade of maple syrup, mustard seeds and balsamic vinegar. Wine is served on a complimentary basis with dinner.
In between bear viewing sessions you will be able to join a guided activity such as sea-kayaking or an interpretive hike, or you may choose to relax with a book from the extensive library.
