Fundsuck des Monats. Als abgelegen darf man dieses Schmucktuck wohl zu Recht bezeichnen. Das Klahoose Wilderness Resort liegt am Homfray Channel in British Columbia zwischen dem Desolation Sound Provincial Marine Park und dem Toba Inlet inmitten des Kustenregenwalds auf dem Gebiet der Klahoose First Nation.  Schon die Andreise ist eign Erlebnis, denn das Resort ist nur per Schiff oder Flugzeug erreichbar. Der Luxus dieses Hotels liegt nicht nur in der Anlage selbst sondern in der einzigartigen Lage, der Stille der kanadischen Natur und in den besonderen Erlebnissen, von denen man noch lange traumt.

"We stand in silence, barely moving. Over the sound of rushing water, I strain my ears to listen for the crack of a twig, a rustle in the bushes near the river. Sounds that would indicate something large stirring nearby. Something like a grizzly bear."
