Farewell Harbour Lodge, Great Bear Rainforest

A family-run waterfront property, Farewell Harbour Lodge offers daily adventures to discover the abundant wildlife of the Broughton Archipelago and Great Bear Rainforest.

Reached via high-speed water taxi, the lodge lies on 30 acres of lush forested land on Berry Island in the Queen Charlotte Strait. Family owned and operated, Farewell Harbour has an intimate, authentic feel with just eight comfortable cabins and four floating suites linked by interconnecting boardwalks. The main lodge consists of an inviting lounge, dining room and bar with large picture windows framing fantastic water and forest views. The wraparound deck is the ideal spot to enjoy the sublime harbour sunsets. 

A stay here is a chance to reconnect with the natural world on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Canada. Although the chance to view grizzly and black bears remains the main draw, the region also offers some of the best marine wildlife viewing in the country. Venture out with a kayak, boat or paddleboard for some wonderful encounters with humpback whales, sea lions, orcas and playful dolphins in the region’s beautiful straits and inlets.
