Reconciliation Through Travel:

qʷaga kʷanačɩm - Come sit down, with us.


The Klahoose Nation is rich in land, water, and cultural resources. The Klahoose ancestors have managed this legacy of natural resources, honoring and protecting the environment and its inhabitants for millennia. 

The Klahoose Nation supports sustainable forestry, aquaculture, and an expanding tourism portfolio. Visitors can now explore this resplendent region like never before as they experience the Klahoose Coastal Adventures Grizzly Bear viewing and lodge at the Klahoose Wilderness Resort. True to their legacy, both operators are fully committed to continue protecting the environment, its wildlife, and natural resources for all future generations.

Their investment is committed to the preservation, conservation, and protection of our ocean, wilderness, marine, and terrestrial life as well as the local community by purchasing locally, employing Indigenous staff and partner with local artists.

Klahoose Wilderness Resort has signed the Sustainable Tourism 2030 Pledge, to demonstrate our commitment to improving the sustainability performance of our business between now and 2030.

The UN World Tourism Organization defines sustainable tourism as “tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities.”

Each year, we commit to measuring and improving our sustainability performance in the following ways: 


  • The off-the-grid Resort produces its own power. In 2022 the resort was awarded a grant from BC Government's new First Nation Clean Energy Business Fund to help fund the redesign and improve the resorts water intake, Pelton wheel (hydro-wheel) and storage capacity. This brand new "turn-key" electrical grid comes with state of the art equipment, allowing us to harness the water more efficiently, triple our energy generation and most importantly, enable us to store energy (otherwise lost) so critical during peak consumption periods. The micro-hydroelectric project will eliminate diesel fuel generators at the off-grid resort, removing up to 38 tonnes of carbon emissions annually to help create a low carbon future for the resort.

  • Partnership with the Commercial Bear Viewing Association to develop industry standards, uniform guide training, and ongoing research to protect bear and wildlife habitat and supporting the Grizzly Bear Foundation

  • Supporting the North Island Marine Mammal Stewardship Association (NIMMSA). A conservation fee is collected from guests and funds go to support conservation and education in the northern Salish Sea region. 

  • Contribution to the local economy to support regional coastal communities by purchasing locally-sourced and sustainable goods, food and supporting Indigenous and local artists  


  • We prioritize hiring for the surrounding communities where we operate. If you are a Klahoose, Tla'amin.  Homalco member or other local Indigenous community members.

  • Recycling program and each guests will receive a reusable water bottle to avoid single use plastics

  • Support program and training for Indigenous careers in tourism

  • We are working on a comprehensive assessment to achieve Sustainable Tourism Certification. The process includes a one-on-one review of our business practices with an assessor to see how we’re doing against GreenStep’s Sustainable Tourism criteria, which is Global Sustainable Tourism Council – Recognized.

  • We are working to align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We are committed to measuring and improving our sustainability performance each year between now and 2030.

The above efforts help to offset carbon footprint of Klahoose Wilderness Resort and it guests that visit each season.

Guests who choose to visit Klahoose Wilderness Resort will naturally support these great initiatives while etching memories through their personal adventures. This collective effort, a connection to place, its people, and time-gathered wisdom come together at Klahoose Wilderness Resort within the Klahoose Nation to cast lifelong memories while providing a positive impact for us all.
