Rainforests, they’re not just for tropical countries. There’s one in Canada too. 21 million acres of it. There, you will find the King Pacific which is one of a new breed of ‘eco lodges’. Developers worked closely with local First Nation tribes in order to support the local economy. You can visit their remote villages (inaccessible by road) to discover a unique culture and place of spiritual significance. Much care has been taken to eliminate the carbon and eco footprint of the hotel so you can rest assured that it has the minimum impact on its environment. The hotel is actually a huge floating barge which is towed 116 miles from its winter home to its summer location deep inside the Great Bear Rainforest. Wilderness hiking and kayaking are tempting options as are the sea and freshwater fishing excursions. Thrillingly, you can spot rare wildlife, from humpback whales to White Bears. In the evenings you will have a rare opportunity for star-gazing and the hotel will provide you with a powerful telescope to use out on the sun deck which is also great for watching sunrises and sunsets.
