Farewell Harbours main lodge features a comfortable communal lounge and dining room, bar with large picture windows. The lodges wrap around deck offers spectacular views of the harbour, perfect for wildlife spotting and to watch the spectacular sunsets. The decks link to a boardwalk along the short, where you'll find eight simple but comfortable oceanside suites with ensuite bathrooms, a wood stove and two queen size beds. In addition, there are four charming floating suites each with a private bathroom.

What is so unique about Farewell Harbour versus other bear viewing lodges, is the fantastic combination of bears and marine mammals that are included in their guiding programme. Guests are encouraged to head out on the water by boat, kayak or paddle board, in search of whales, dolphins, harbour seals and fishing eagles that are at home here in the inlets. Bear viewing remains a key attraction of a visit to Farewell Harbour, with guided excursions to see Grizzly Bears near Knight Inlet taken by zodiac and then on foot to see these majestic creatures at their best. Black bears are more often seen from boats, foraging on the shorelines of the inlets.

Farewell Harbour Lodge is also known for its relationship with First Nations communities, and engaging talks and educational trips are recommended for those interested in learning more. Guided activities aside, Farewell Harbour also offers untamed forests to explore at your leisure.
