About Us  

Klahoose Wilderness Resort perches on the water’s edge in the temperate Rain Forest between BC’s Salish Sea and the Coastal Mountains. Located on a remote channel, named 'Thee chum mi yich' – meaning further back inside (Homfray Channel) - in the calm waters of Desolation Sound, the resort is a quiet and peaceful place. Located in the heart of  Klahoose Nation traditional territory, the resort reflects the welcoming spirits and cultural traditions exclusive to these immersive connections with nature and wildlife. 

The resort is owned by the Klahoose First Nation, and we offer Grizzly Bear viewing tours as well as marine and terrestrial wildlife viewing throughout the traditional lands of the toq qaymɩxʷ (Klahoose) People. toq qaymɩxʷ lands span from Cortes Island, opposite Quadra Island near Campbell River, to Toba Inlet. We work with our neighbours of the χʷɛmaɬkʷu (Homalco), kwɑːkjʊtəl (Kwakiutl), and ɬəʔamɛn qaymɩxʷ (Tla’amin) Nations,

 

Klahoose Wilderness Resort tours are primarily led by our Klahoose guides. These guides are culturally trained and share legends, stories, language, and songs. While the focus on eco-adventure tours from May through August shifts to Grizzly Bear viewing tours from late-August until mid-October, their commitment to stewardship and community stays the same, and weaves through everything we do.

 

The resort first opened in 2021, and is becoming Canada's most recognized Indigenous eco-resort. The intimate 6,100-square foot, cedar timber main building can accommodate 14 to 22 guests amongst our four spacious Lodge Rooms, and three private, one and two-bedroom cedar Cabins.

Klahoose Wilderness Resort offers 3 and 4 night all-inclusive wildlife and cultural packages from May to October. Stays include accommodation, all meals, tours,  Indigenous activities, kayaking, paddle boarding, and hiking. As the resort is accessible only by water or air, we offer boat transfers from Lund or Powell River, and connecting flights from Campbell River or Vancouver, BC are also possible.

We extend a warm welcome and much gratitude.

We wish you safe travels and hope you enjoy your time with us.

Welcome to our home.
