Owned by the Kitasoo/Xai’xais First Nation, Spirit Bear Lodge is a comfortable base from which to explore the Kitasoo Spirit Bear Conservancy and the culture of the people who have lived here for hundreds of years.
Based on a traditional long house, the hub of the lodge is the great room. Here you’ll share communal meals around two long cedar tables and swap experiences from your days with the other guests. Twelve comfortable bedrooms situated over two floors extend from here. All rooms overlook the water so keep your eyes peeled for the humpbacks and orca that regularly swim up this quieter strait.
We find that this peaceful lodge is one of those places that always stays with you. Spending days out on the water searching for marine life, grizzlies and the illusive spirit bear is a hard-to-beat experience.
