rediscover the power and beauty of nature 



Welcome to the valley of the grizzlies


Picture this; you wake in the morning to the gentle sounds of water lapping against the floating lodge. The fresh morning air fills your lungs as a lazy sun creeps over the horizon, filling sky with glorious shades. You take a sip your coffee as you walk the deck scanning the tree line for the first signs of wildlife. There are no roads, towns, campsites for as far as the eye can see. This time is yours to be free of distraction and embrace the natural world. Together, we will experience all the Khutzeymateen has to offer on covered boats, with plenty of room to move and adjust as the activity unfolds around you.

You might hardly believe it, but you're here. This is the Khutzeymateen Valley, Canada’s only Grizzly Bear Sanctuary and a pristine wilderness that spans a whopping 39,000-hectares. The valley supports a thriving and ancient trinity of grizzly bears, spawning salmon, and massive Sitka spruce trees. Home to an estimated 50+ grizzlies who depend on the biodiversity of this valley. From its sheltered estuary and open fjord to its rich sedge fields and dense rainforest, its become a haven for numerous species. Attracting wolves, migrating geese, ducks, harbour seals, beaver and otters, as well as orca and humpback whales. 

Not a professional photographer? Or looking to bring a companion that isn't a photographer... not a problem! We are focused on creating an inclusive environment that is dedicated to delivering profound visual experiences for each and every guest we're travelling with. And if that means you just want to sit and be present, we want you to experience the beauty of the Khutzeymateen, in YOUR own way.
