Farewell Harbour Lodge

About Farewell Harbour Lodge, Great Bear Rainforest

The picturesque Farewell Harbour Lodge is located on Berry Island, 10 acres of beautifully forested land found within British Columbia's Queen Charlotte Strait. The combination of land-based lodges and those situated on floating walkways makes for a charming and authentic lodging experience here in Canada's serene southwest, where the interface between land and water is central to the lives of those who call the area home.

This waterfront retreat offers both relaxation and the chance to enjoy some thrilling wildlife sightings, most notably bears and whales.

Style

An intimate lodge with a friendly and cosy atmosphere.

Setting

Located on Berry Island in the Queen Charlotte Strait, on the southern border of the Great Bear Rainforest and adjacent to Broughton Archipelago Marine Park.

Accommodation & Facilities

Eight of the lodge's suites are located onshore, each with en-suite bathroom, wood-burning stove and two queen-sized beds. Four more suites are floating accommodations accessed by a wooden walkway, each with a private bathroom. All of the comfortable and well-appointed rooms incorporate cedar and other natural materials into their design, while the local artwork adds to the distinctive West Coast feel. There is also a sizable and comfortable communal area which boasts a lounge, bar and dining room, complete with wood panelling and large windows which offer a fantastic view of the surrounding waters and forested hills.

Dining

Guests can enjoy sumptuous meals served in the lodge's dining room, enjoying freshly caught fish and a selection of wines grown right here in British Columbia.

Activities

Farewell Harbour's location means there are a wealth of activities to enjoy here. Guests wishing to take to the water can do so by boat, kayak or paddle board, searching for the whales, dolphins, seals and sea lions that can be found swimming through the straits and inlets here. Both black and brown bears (as well as the rare spirit bear) can be seen searching for food at the water's edge or walking through the Great Bear Rainforest to the north, and bear-viewing excursions are understandably one of the top attractions here. For those wanting to take it easy, fishing offers a great way to unwind while taking in the local scenery. You can also choose to head inland either on foot or on the back of a mountain bike, while the 10-acre private forest on Berry Island provides the perfect place to take in the natural surroundings at your own pace.

Child Policy

Farewell Harbour Lodge caters to children aged 10 and above.
