Accommodation options in the Great Bear Rainforest are as unique and varied as the area. The location and style of accommodation will often depend on the type of tour or visit.

Stay in an all-inclusive lodge in the heart of the wilderness, a First Nations-themed guest house, a floating base camp on the edge of the rainforest or a small coastal community. The small-ship cruises that tour the area offer cozy onboard accommodation and scenery that changes daily.

Accessible by car, Bella Coola offers a wide range of accommodation choices including lodges, guest houses, campgrounds & RV parks and a motel. Smaller coastal communities like Shearwater and Klemtu have limited options, with rooms often included as part of a designated tour or travel package. Be sure to check for availability and make reservations in advance if you are travelling independently.

Gateway towns and cities such as Campbell River, Port Hardy, Port McNeill and Prince Rupert are often the departure and arrival points for tours and trips. These areas usually offer a broad range of accommodation options, including hotels, motels, B&Bs, campgrounds and RV parks.
