Welcome to Klahoose Wilderness Resort, an exceptional Indigenous cultural experience nestled in the heart of British Columbia's breathtaking Desolation Sound. As a proud, 100% Indigenous-owned eco-resort, we offer a unique and off-the-grid escape for those seeking an authentic wilderness adventure. Our resort specializes in crafting unforgettable 3 to 4-night all-inclusive packages, including spring bear tours, grizzly bear viewing during the fall salmon run, and cultural and wildlife experiences throughout the seasons. Nestled between the majestic Coast Mountain peaks of British Columbia's Sunshine Coast and the Northern Islands of the Salish Sea, our resort sits along Homfray Channel. Upon your arrival, you'll be warmly welcomed with a traditional Klahoose greeting on the lodge's verandah. As you take in the breathtaking surroundings, your worries will vanish amidst the calls of osprey, the sight of Orca whales gracing the waters, and the soothing ocean breeze wafting through the conifer forest. At Klahoose Wilderness Resort, we offer an intimate and worry-free experience suitable for families, couples, and solo travelers eager to immerse themselves in one of the planet's most biodiverse ecosystems. Your days here will be filled with transformative adventures, from witnessing Grizzly bears fishing for salmon to kayaking alongside playful porpoises and embarking on forest hikes through ancient western red cedar groves. Surprisingly accessible despite its seclusion, Klahoose Wilderness Resort welcomes guests from Vancouver, Seattle, Vancouver Island, and beyond. You can choose to travel by air (just a 35-minute scheduled flight from Vancouver to Powell River, or a 1-hour charter seaplane directly to our dock), by car and ferry (a scenic half-day drive), or by boat (a quick 45-minute trip from Lund to the Resort) to reach our convenient shuttle departure sites in Lund on the Sunshine Coast or Campbell River on Vancouver Island. Desolation Sound has earned its nickname as the "Serengeti of North America" due to its abundant marine and terrestrial wildlife. Orca and humpback whales, porpoises, harbor seals, and dolphins can be spotted year-round. A myriad of avian species, including bald eagles, osprey, and great blue herons, call this region home. The indigenous tradition and guest experience both revolve around the local bounty of clams, oysters, crab, prawns, and all five salmon species. The inlets of Desolation Sound are renowned for hosting one of the world's most robust grizzly bear populations. The Klahoose First Nation also operates grizzly bear viewing tours, offering guests the opportunity to observe these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat, located just 45 minutes by boat from the resort in remote Toba Inlet. Natural exploration forms the cornerstone of our activities at the resort. Indigenous guides lead guests on immersive nature and cultural excursions in one of the largest temperate rainforests on Earth and Klahoose nation territory. Water enthusiasts can enjoy the warm, calm ocean waters with activities such as sea kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and invigorating swims. Plus, there's a serene woodfire sauna perched on a floating dock overlooking the ocean and mountains. Our resort caters to travelers of all ages and interests. The Lodge at Klahoose Wilderness Resort, a stunning 6,100-square foot timber structure crafted from local cedar, provides an intimate and tranquil environment. The main lodge boasts four spacious guest rooms, and we offer three separate cedar cabins, accommodating an average of 14 guests with a maximum capacity of 22. It's an ideal destination for private groups, multi-generational family getaways, or special occasions. Each guest room and cabin is adorned with indigenous artwork from surrounding coastal communities, and the common spaces offer breathtaking vistas of Desolation Sound. Guests come together for morning coffee and, after another remarkable day, gather for evening cocktails on the wraparound deck, where the setting sun bathes the Homfray Channel in a warm, golden glow. In Desolation Sound, each morning welcomes you to the diverse and vibrant wildlife foraging, nesting, and exploring their pristine habitat. For a few precious days from mid-August to mid-October, you're invited to join us in this sublime environment to observe grizzly bears in their natural habitat. Klahoose Wilderness Resort is also proud to operate off the grid, generating its own hydro power, and has been honored with a prestigious sustainability certification. At Klahoose Wilderness Resort, we offer a sanctuary where the days are filled with tranquility, the voices of nature, ancient forests, and rich indigenous culture. From the moment we welcome you to our home, we take care of every detail, ensuring a truly unforgettable experience.
