Spirit Bear Lodge and The Great Bear Rainforest are all of what has been shared in the reviews. An addition, the totality of my experience was transformation. Being outside on the boat for big chunks of time each day and being with the silence, stillness and explosive action was a feeling of joy, contentment, centredness and appreciation for this precious part of our Earth and the First Peoples whose hearts still beat to the Earth's drum. And to tramp the sacred grounds where the Nature Spirits are still lovingly present brought those feelings even deeper. The guides, assistant guides, skippers, food and housekeeping gods and goddesses were all on the same level as Nature. To be in Klemtu with people who are generous, warmhearted, humorous, serious, skilled and fun was the topping of the trip. And Tim, the G.M., is so perfectly the right person in the right place at the right time; such a blessing he is. Interacting with Tim was so comforting when lots of questions arose prior to making a decision about the trip as Tim is a top-notch personable professional. May Spirit Bear Lodge continue to be transformation and may many many of the Earth's peoples share in her beauty and come to understand the importance of allowing Mother Earth this pristine Rainforest so she can continue to breathe deeply.
