King Pacific Lodge

TAGS: RESIDENT ORCAS, FLOATING LODGE
In the province that has perfected the adventure lodge—we could make a case for locating half our list in B.C.—King Pacific towers above the rest. The place is essentially a (very expensive) floating wildlife blind with a spa. Each spring, the 17-room property is towed 100 miles from the nearest highway to its anchorage in a cove off Princess Royal Island, deep within the wild-as-hell Great Bear Rainforest. The cove's only occupants are the lodge's 25 staff—including kayak and fly-fishing guides—a resident pod of nine orcas, a small clan of gray wolves, and, in September, the occasional grizzly or white-coated Kermode. The digs aren't bad, either: each room has a soaker tub, and dinner is what­ever fish you caught that day. US$4,725 per person for three nights, including round-trip flight from Vancouver; kingpacificlodge.com
