COVID-19 Update April 27th 2021:
On behalf of the Spirit Bear Lodge team we would like to take this opportunity to update you on the most recent events
and decisions regarding the 2021 season. While we had hoped to be welcoming guests to the Great Bear Rainforest this year, it has become increasingly more apparent that we will not be able to do so.
At this time the Bella Bella airport remains closed to any commercial or outside charter flights and it does not appear that
there will be flights in the near future. This is the gateway for Spirit Bear Lodge guest travel into and out of the
Kitasoo/Xai'xais territory. Both Kitasoo/Xai'xais and Heiltsuk Nations are not welcoming travellers into the communities because of COVID-19 variants and the health and safety of community members .
In consideration of community guidelines to protect and preserve the fragile history left as Kitasoo Xai'xais nation, we
look forward to welcoming guests back to visit our beautiful territory when it is safe to do so.
Spirit Bear Lodge understands, respects and supports the decisions of the communities and will therefore
has cancelled the 2021 season.
