Nimmo Bay Resort


Wildlife Holiday at Nimmo Bay Resort Canada

The Great Bear Rainforest provides the setting for this luxury cabin holiday in BC, Canada. This area is home to an abundance of wildlife including the Black Bear, Grizzly Bear, whales, salmon and wolves. Tucked away at the edge of a coastal inlet with thin the protected rainforest area, Nimmo Bay Resort offers a luxurious retreat with access to unlimited nature and lush wilderness. Six intertidal cabins perch at the shoreline allowing guests to experience the rise and fall of the water beneath them, whilst three cabins are hidden away streamside with the sound of cascading waterfalls close by. From arrival by float plane to departure day, the resort staff offer a end-to-end service tailoring your wilderness adventures to your exact requirements. This holiday includes a daily menu of options to choose from as well as the chance to indulge in wellness activities and enjoy five star cuisine.




DAY 1:

Connections from Vancouver bring you to Port Hardy Airport where your hosts from Nimmo Bay will meet you. An evening departure by float plane lifts you high above the rainforest and touches down in a perfect paradise. Take some time to take in your surroundings and settle into your cabin. Hors d’oeuvres and beverages are served on the deck side lounge and floating lodge. A gourmet 3 course coastal feast and house-made decadent dessert will soon follow. After dinner, enjoy a waterfall hot tub, a billiards game, a massage or relax around the floating moonlit fire pit.

Staying at:

DAY 2:

Your day begins as actively or as decadently as the mood takes you. An early morning yoga class is offered to awaken the body and mind, or perhaps a relaxing dip in the outdoor hot tub followed by a balancing outdoor rain shower. Or simply enjoy the chance to sleep and let the aromas of homemade cinnamon buns and organic Fernwood coffee awaken you. A three course breakfast is served in the floating lodge which includes a fresh-squeezed juice bar, healthy smoothies and infused waters.

Your hosts will help to devise an adventure plan for today based on your preferred activities (please see the list below right).

After a day enjoying the surroundings, evening treats await. Cocktails are served on the floating fire deck followed by a coastal appetizer and four-course gourmet dinner and mouth watering, in-house-made dessert. All breads and pastries are made fresh on site. After dinner, return to the floating fire dock to relax beneath skies of intense starlight. Enjoy an after dinner drink while you are serenaded by that evening's musical offering. You may also enjoy an evening kayak to see the glowing phosphorescence light up the pitch black night, take another waterfall hot tub, or retire to your own personal intertidal chalet for a deep restorative sleep.

DAY 3:

Today will offer the opportunity to choose an adventure from the list made available. The resort also has a fleet of helicopters for once-in-a-lifetime adventures in the high mountains and glaciers. There is a supplementary cost to book a helicopter tour, and indeed we can arrange packages with daily helicopter adventures including heli-hiking, heli-rafting and heli-fishing.

All adventures are subject to suitable weather conditions, and we cannot guarantee the order of the final itinerary as this will be confirmed on arrival at the resort.

Enjoy your final evening to relax and take in the special atmosphere which you will want to bottle and take home with you!

DAY 4:

After a final breakfast, it is time to depart from Nimmo Bay and return to Port Hardy for your onward travels. If you’re hankering for a longer stay, we can arrange four and seven night packages based on set arrival and departure days. We can also extend your holiday with a self-drive package in BC and Vancouver. Please get in touch with us to find out more.
