King Pacific Lodge - Luxurious Floating Barge In The Great Bear RainforestKing Pacific  

Rainforests, they’re not just for tropical countries. There’s one in Canada too. Twenty-one million acres of it. There, you will find King Pacific, one of the new breeds of ‘eco-lodges’.

Developers worked closely with local First Nation tribes in order to support the local economy. As a result, 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 a minimum impact on its environment.

The hotel is actually a vast floating barge towed 116 miles (187 km) 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.
