There’s no doubt that sighting grizzlies in their natural habitat is one of the great Canadian wilderness experiences. But the word, ‘wilderness’, is probably a hint of where the giants of the brown bear family hang out and how unenthusiastic they are about making scheduled appearances.
Over half of North America’s grizzly population live in British Columbia (BC) and, even more remarkably, 90% are indigenous. Knight Inlet Lodge sits (technically it floats) on Glendale Cove in one of the most remote areas of BC and from mid-August to October, it’s the top place in the world to see grizzlies – upwards of 40 bears have been recorded within 10km of the Lodge in high season.
