Located in Klemtu, BC, the Spirit Bear Lodge has become a successful model for conservation-based ecotourism, attracting visitors looking to experience the Great Bear Rainforest’s globally rare species and stunning landscapes. Owned and operated by Kitasoo/Xai’xais Nation, the lodge pays homage to the traditional long houses built by west coast First Nations and offers lounge/meeting space, an ocean view deck and communal dining. The Spirit Bear Lodge is listed as a Signature Experience once-in-a-lifetime travel experience by Destination Canada. In 2017 the lodge was recognized with the Indigenous Adventure Award.
