Arrive by seaplane or helicopter to this remote speck on the map; it’s the only way in to Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort, and into the magical Great Bear Rainforest.

Set along the coastline at the foothills of Mt. Stephens, Nimmo Bay Resort is a journey into the wild! A glacier-fed waterfall provides drinking water and green energy, where luxury and sustainability are realized in breathtaking fashion. Spacious cottages provide a welcoming and luxurious space to lose your cares in.

Lounge in the hot tub and plan your days gazing upon the waterfall, eagles overhead. Envision the mountaintop you will conquer – your reward will be a delectable picnic on a 10,000-year-old glacier. From your front row, sea kayak seat, get up close and personal with black bears on the shore. Feel the exhilarating pull of your lure in this heli-fishing utopia. Split your days between sea and land, and feel a part of this symbiotic mecca.

Customizing your personal adventure is half the fun; the other lies in savouring the sights, the cuisine, and the wine by a fire. A rare spotting of phosphorescence, a splash from an orca ten feet away…with access to 50,000 sq. miles of pristine wilderness, the stories you bring back won’t need embellishing.
