To start planning your vacation to King Pacific Lodge
Being accessible only by float plane makes King Pacific Lodge a very special place to be from the moment you arrive.
Tucked away on the water, the lodge is set in the Great Bear Rainforest which is the largest intact temperate rainforest left on Earth. This part of the Canadian wilderness is home to many diverse and unique species of animals including the endangered Kermode or Spirit Bear, the elusive rainforest wolf, pods of Orca whales and numerous bald eagles.
A stay at King Pacific Lodge offers exclusive access into this beautiful wilderness area where guests will be able to experience the abundant flora and fauna that inhabit this untouched area of British Columbia. Join the lodge's knowledgeable and passionate guides to search for orcas, salmon and sea lions in June and July, for humpback whales and rare black wolves from July to August and then the pinnacle in September, grizzly, black and the elusive Kermode bears. Travel by foot, kayak, helicopter or boat to experience close at hand the wonders that this area can offer.
Guests at the lodge are also privileged to be able to experience the local First Nations culture. From the beginning of time the Gitga'at people, part of the Tsimshian Nation, have existed on what is now British Columbia's northwest coast. During their stay, guests will have many opportunities to share in cultural, wildlife and other types of experiences in Gitga'at territory.
Accommodation at the lodge is luxurious with a choice of rooms and suites all offering views of the wilderness or ocean. The suites are all uniquely designed and offer a very special experience.
Dining at the lodge is an experience in itself. A fusion of the local culture, Japanese influences and making the most of the fresh produce available, the lodge's executive chef brings these concepts to life and adds his own flair. Every day invites a new culinary experience.
A stay at King Pacific Lodge is a wonderful assault on the senses. An opportunity for guests to immerse themselves into the heart of the forest, culture and wildlife.
