Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort Getaway
Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort:
Deep in the Great Bear Rainforest floats Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort, a collection of intertidal cabins that bring a slice of luxury to the remote. This refuge offers access to some of the most pristine backcountry in BC. No two days at Nimmo Bay are the same, you could be paddleboarding with dolphins on one day, relaxing in the floating sauna the next, and heli-fishing in complete privacy the day after that – the sky is the limit here! Other options include wilderness picnics, bear-viewing, and heli-hiking. If you’d like a journey that experiences nature in the most personal and spectacular way and features the bright lights of Vancouver, this itinerary could be for you.
