  • Located in historical Kingcome Inlet, this village is in isolated fjord set against the breathtaking backdrop of great towering mountains, carved into the Coast Mountain Range of mainland British Columbia by the glaciers of the last ice age. This coastline features magnificent fjord-like inlets hosting several remote fishing lodges set in spectacular surroundings. The area is a true west coast adventure, teeming with wildlife, cascading waterfalls and waterslides, and steep mountain cliffs rising straight out of the sea.

    Formerly known as the Kwakiutl, the Kwakwaka’wakw First Nations have lived here for thousands of years, a region with a history rich in native culture and heritage. Pictographs, burial sites, and shell middens on Harbledown, Village and Turnour Islands, to name only a few sites, offer a fascinating glimpse into Kwakwaka’wakw and Coast Salish culture and history.

    Kingcome Inlet is accessible only by private boat, water taxi, scheduled working freight service, and scheduled and charter floatplane.
