Great Bear Rainforest

The Great Bear Rainforest on the Pacific coast of British Columbia is the largest coastal temperate rainforest on earth and home to Spirit Bear lodge and our world class Canada Wildlife tours.

Temperate Great Bear Rainforest  

Kitasoo/Xai’xais territory is over 50% protected, which makes it what some call the crown jewel of The Great Bear Rainforest.

Stand in awe under massive old growth trees, marvel at the variation in mosses, lichens, and numerous unique plant species.

Leave the modern world behind and re-connect with nature, set your camera down, breath in the crisp forest air and relax.

We encourage our guests to move at a slower pace and appreciate every aspect of this magnificent ecosystem.


The historic Great Bear Rainforest Agreement placed 9 million acres off limits to logging and millions of acres under strict forest management guidelines. 

British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest is part of the largest intact coastal temperate rainforest on Earth.  This is a land of mist-shrouded valleys and glacier-cut fjords, old-growth forests, wildlife like rare spirit bears and rich salmon streams. 

With 4.2 million acres monitored by Indigenous Guardians annually, 767 new, permanent jobs have been created in First Nations communities.

It is also home to First Nations people who have been linked to the rainforest since time immemorial.
