Travelling Here is Part of the Adventure!

One of our most frequently asked questions is, "How do we get to your lodge?" Flights from the South Terminal at Vancouver Airport are included in our packages.

Getting Here

Guests will start their adventure with us by boarding a flight with Pacific Coastal Airline at Vancouver International Airport’s South Terminal for a 1hr 20min trip over the Coast Range and The Great Bear Rainforest to the remote Bella Bella airstrip. Guests will be met by Spirit Bear Lodge staff and shuttled to the dock where a comfortable lodge boat will be waiting to transport guests two hours north to Klemtu where the lodge is located. Along the way, guests may see their first glimpses of wildlife in The Great Bear Rainforest and stunning vistas of Canada’s rugged West Coast.

IMPORTANT: Pacific Coastal may delay or cancel flights for various reasons, including weather and mechanical issues. We strongly recommend staying one night in Vancouver on each side of your trip in addition to purchasing travel insurance. We book our guest flights, however Pacific Coastal is a third party provider and Spirit Bear Lodge does not have control over their operations or service. If a flight is canceled Pacific Coastal will rebook on the next available flight or potentially schedule a flight for the following day. If Pacific Coastal cannot rebook for the following day it is potentially possible to charter a float plane at an additional cost. Please understand travel on this remote part of the coast of British Columbia is challenging and just getting to the lodge is part of the adventure.
