Knight Inlet Lodge floats above water within Glendale Cove and is accessible only by floatplane during a short summer season. Whether it is in early summer, when the bears forage on the coastlines at low tide for barnacles, or at the height of the summer when the salmon return to the spawning channels giving the bears access to thousands of fish, you are more or less guaranteed to see these wonderful animals. Bears are the main reason to travel here, but don’t be surprised to see whales, dolphins, seals and majestic bald eagles grace the cove and inlet. Combine this with a few days exploring vibrant Vancouver and you can have a truly memorable holiday experience.
Travel out to British Columbia on Canadas west coast and visit three of the best locations it has to offer. Pretty Victoria, the state capital, situated on Vancouver Island and built around a stunning inner harbour. Whistler, an amazing skiing destination over the winter becomes one of the most lively and picturesque villages, teeming with life over warm summers. Cosmopolitan Vancouver with the usual big city vibe and lots to see and do. Connecting these three cities could usual take hours out of your trip with long ferry crossings and drives or boring waits and security queues at major airports and not forgetting traffic congestion. Cut all that out with seaplane connections from downtown Victoria’s inner harbour direct to Green Lake in Whistler and then from Green Lake to Vancouver harbour, on the edge of downtown. The journeys are spectacular too as you fly at a few thousand feet over the Inside Passage, Coast Mountains and north Vancouver. You may end up thinking it’s the only way to travel!
