Grizzly Bear Viewing at Knight Inlet, B.C.

30th Anniversary Trip: October 15-20, 2020

Take a trip with Vital Ground to the magnificent, rugged British Columbia coast to view bears, adventure on land and water amidst islands and snow-capped peaks and learn about some of the most important conservation efforts for grizzlies in the Lower 48. Located 50 miles north of Campbell River is a wild and remote area known as Knight Inlet. Tucked into Glendale Cove is a floating wilderness resort called Knight Inlet Lodge. Glendale Cove is home to one of the largest concentrations of grizzly bears in British Columbia. It is not uncommon for there to be up to 50 bears within five miles of the lodge in the fall season, when salmon are returning to the river.
