Escape into the wilderness and rejuvenate your soul with nature. The May Experience is for those who are looking to get away from the city and enjoy some downtime in the Great Bear Rainforest. This is a great escape for couples, families, or even a group of friends looking for the chance to reconnect without everyday life getting in the way.
In May, the rainforest comes alive with anticipation of summer. Contrary to the hectic noise levels found in nearby urban centres such as Vancouver and Seattle, the symphony of spring at Nimmo Bay is calm and peaceful.
This experience, offered in May, offers guests the chance to relax in their own private cabins, soak up the calm of the floating lodge, melt in the hot tubs located next to the onsite waterfall, and enjoy our inspiring and abundant West Coast cuisine. Guests can choose to participate in daily featured activities such as hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding and group yoga classes. Guests also have the option to book private excursions or helicopter day-trips.
