Welcome to Farewell Harbour Lodge

A Lodge on the Edge of the Rainforest...Experience Nature Naturally

On the southern frontier of Canada's Great Bear Rainforest we offer daily excursions to view the majestic Grizzly Bear, wild Orca, Humpback Whales and a host of other wildlife.

COVID-19 Update as of July 31, 2020: We are closely following the advice and guidelines of the provincial and federal authorities. Due to the Canadian government's current travel restrictions and BC's slow, phased-in approach to re-opening the economy, the path ahead unfortunately remains uncertain in terms of our ability to welcome guests at the lodge this season. We are really hoping to open for part of this season, but it is dependent upon international travel restrictions being lifted as well as the health and safety protocols required on our vessels and at the lodge. As both of these are very uncertain still, we are monitoring the situation closely and will update this page regularly. Please contact us at stay@farewellharbour.com if you would like to discuss any concerns with us.

Owned and operated by the Brockway and McGrady families, our mission at Farewell Harbour Lodge is simple:  To help our guests experience the profound beauty of the Broughton Archipelago and the Great Bear Rainforest.  We do that by offering inspiring west coast style ocean-side accommodations, sumptuous meals and engaging, passionate guides who will lead you on daily adventures deep into the heart of this wild and beautiful part of the planet.  We live in a magical place blessed with some of nature’s most charismatic wildlife, where wild Orca skip over the blue Pacific waves, where mighty Grizzlies forage in lush coastal estuaries and where the towering evergreen forest seems endless. And let’s not forget the wild Salmon upon whose foundation all this richness rests.

Although we are a non-Indigenous owned company, we seek to honour the Indigenous people who have lived in this region since time immemorial. We travel and conduct our tours in the traditional territories of the Mamalilikulla, Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis,  Da'naxda'xw Awaetlala and 'Namgis First Nations.  Our lodge itself is located in Mamalilikulla First Nation territory and we operate under agreement with them.  We embrace the spirit of reconciliation and The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Our logo was designed by KWAMKWAMGALIS Jason Taylor. Jason is a First Nations artist descending from the  Namgis, Tlowitsis and Mamtagila tribes of Northern Vancouver Island.
