The Wilderness Retreat at Nimmo Bay Resort

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 Wilderness 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.
