About Knight Inlet Lodge

About Knight Inlet Lodge

In Glendale Cove, 60km from the mouth of Knight Inlet, you will find the floating Knight Inlet Lodge. Surrounded by the dramatic snow peaked mountains that capture the essence of Canada’s rugged coastline, Knight Inlet Lodge is at the heart of a natural paradise.

This is a great place to view grizzly bears, with sometimes as many as 50 within a 10km radius of the lodge in the autumn when the salmon are spawning. Originally a logging camp, the lodge still has some of the features representing this time in the early 1940’s as well as modern influences where the lodge has grown and been refurbished. The lodge was converted to a modern, comfortable facility in 2013 for the purpose of wilderness tourism.
