If you choose to stay the extra night at our lodge the extra day is spent at a “wild” river on a wilderness tour. We cross Knight Inlet pass through Thompson Sound to the Kakweikan River and spend a day with Trapper Rick. The scenery on BC’s mainland in breathtaking and the wildlife viewing provides a reasonable chance of grizzly bear sightings. Bears are viewed below the falls at Rick’s cabin or on the road to the cabin. In this case it was on the road and we wait until the bear decides to let us pass. Having guided for the past twelve summer I can say that seeing a grizzly bear at Rick’s is a different sensation than see one from a viewing stand on Knight Inlet’s Glendale River.
On the lodges grizzly bear tours we often view bears quite close. The viewing stands are located on a narrow road next to Knight Inlet’s Glendale River and after the grizzlies have eaten enough salmon they often pass beneath or very close to the viewing stand. This is the reason we are in an enclosed cage and the bears are free to roam.
