The Kitasoo Xai'xais are Committed to Protecting their Lands for Future Generations

At Spirit Bear Lodge we believe in responsible tourism, this means we do everything possible to minimize our impact on the special places we visit and the animals that call them home. We leave no trace and are conservative with our wildlife viewing. We take the time to appreciate every aspect of The Great Bear Rainforest and let the wildlife decide how close to get. It is truly an honour and a privilege to spend time in the Kitasoo Xai'xais traditional territory, we respect nature, take only pictures and leave only footprints. 


Conservation efforts are why we have this spectacular wilderness now called The Great Bear Rainforest. Spirit Bear Lodge supports local conservation organizations and community based stewardship efforts. By visiting Spirit Bear Lodge you are supporting an Indigenous owned environmentally responsible business. This means enjoying an experience of a lifetime at Spirit Bear Lodge contributes to conservation efforts in the GBR and the community of Klemtu.

The ancestors of the local First Nations of Klemtu managed their resources in a sustainable way that provided for all and ensured that the wealth of forests, fish and wildlife would be here for the future generations.

roaming souls This place is terrific. Everything from the rooms to the service to the food to the excursions....even the town of Klemtu, was a blend of charm and excitement. Yes we saw spirit bears but there was so much more. Stunning scenery, humpback whales feeding, orcas, grizzly bear mother with cubs, more stunning scenery. It felt magical, but also felt like being home. roaming souls
Linda Reinicke Barnes 'This place is magic. You will be treated like family and will come away with an experience like no other before. Plan to spend several days so you can get plenty of opportunity to see the vast landscapes, the wonderful wildlife and get to meet the local people. Linda Reinicke Barnes
