winter at Knight Inlet grizzly bear lodge

As past guests of Knight Inlet Lodge know from personal experience our location in Glendale Cove features incredible scenery. Many people comment on the natural beauty of our area, saying they would love to live here year round. The standard response form our staff is you haven’t been here in the winter! The pictures in this blog will give you an idea of just how harsh our winter can be. These pictures were taken by our Caretakers for the winter of 2008 -09 Steve & Heidi.

As these pictures show it is a good thing that the grizzly bears of Knight Inlet are settled into their winter hibernation! Living in Glenadle Cove over the winter is a whole different adventure than viewing grizzly bears as they fish for salmon. So for those of you coming to visit Knight Inlet Lodge in 2010 remeber you do not want to be here in the winter!

Hi Guys

Our three night staywith you late July 09 was out of this world the environment the wild life & the staff were exceptional especially our guides Luke & Moira their knowledge & passion for their work made our stay perfect. We had rain for two days but that didn’t stop us or dampen our enthusiasm how else would you experience the rainforest walk but in the rain! we felt very privileged to be in this remote & protected part of the world, we saw lots of Grizzly Bears including one Bear crashing through the water to try & beat two Eagles to a Salmon what a spectacle I would never have believed that the Grizzly Bear could move so fast, it only added to our excitement when walking along a Bear trail discovering Bear day beds, rubbing trees & listening to some of Luke’s many Bear stories, the food at the lodge was awesome, the chefs did a great job, we didn’t want to leave & would like to think we will return in a few years time & see how baby Bear Peanut has grown.

Photos from guests of Knight Inlet Lodge

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Over the years Knight Inlet Lodge has been fortunate to receive many excellent photos from guests. We thought that you might enjoy seeing some of them. Many thanks to the numerous people that have sent us photos over the years. The grizzly bears of Knight Inlet Lodge make for some exciting photography opportunities as they fish for salmon or just hang out in the estuary.  Over time we intend to post more of these pictures on our blog as a way to let everyone see our bears in the wild. Here is few of my favourite photos, enjoy!

Closed for the Season!

October 18 saw the last of our guests depart and the remaining staff start on the shutdown procedure for the lodge. There was one litle wrinkle to this annual event as we hosted a film crew from the NBC Today Show. They were at Knight Inlet Lodge to film a segment that will air during the Winter Olympics here in British Columbia. The crew spent the better part of 3 days with us  getting outstanding footage  including some of our white grizzly cub. Once we know the date the footage will air we’ll post a blog so everyone can watch.

Over the next few months very little will be happening at the lodge outside of our ongoing Coho Salmon Hatchery. Glendale Cove is a very differnet place right now as days and weeks will go by without any visitors. Our Caretakers Ed and Bonnie are settled in to their new home away from home and looking forward to the advdenture ahead.
