Eco Luxury Eco-Challenge at King Pacific Lodge
The King Pacific Lodge is staying true to its eco luxury pledge with its new “giveback giveaway,” The Great Bear Rainforest Eco-Challenge. Through a series of activities, guests will explore the surrounding Great Bear Rainforest while also generating donations to local conservation, wildlife and charities.
The King Pacific Lodge describes its philosophy as “Triple Bottom Line” management: respect for the land, respect for the people of the land and an understanding that sustainable tourism can only flourish when guests share that same feeling. The King Pacific Lodge is committed to providing a level of service and sustainability to ensure that all of these componenets can work together successfully.
The luxury lodge has created a varied portfolio of seven activities that will “earn” donations. Activites range from learning the native language of the area to summiting a mountain. Some activities are not for everyone, like the five mile open area kayaking circumnavigation of Ashdown Island. Upon completion of each activity, the lodge makes a donation to a pre-determined charity or local group.
The eco luxury adventures are: photographing four marine or land mammals (CDN $100 donation to North Coast Cetacean Society); mastering a Sm’algyax language guide of place and animal names on a cultural tour of the territory ($100 to the Hartley Bay School); photographing two bears of the Great Bear Rainforest ($100 to Gitga’at Cultural Centre); releasing three salmon caught on self-tied flies ($100 to Hartley Bay School); and summiting a nearby mountain and photographing three edible plant species ($100 to Gitga’at Cultural Centre).
A special bonus of CDN $1000 will be made to the Hartley Bay School on behalf of any guest that completes all seven activities during their stay. Guests who complete three adventures will receive a complimentary spa treatment. All participants receive a commemorative photograph and certificate as a memento of their contribution and lasting connection to the Great Bear Rainforest.
Since its opening, The King Pacific Lodge has worked together with the Gitga’at Nation, a First Nation in British Columbia to give back to the stunning surrounding environment. King Pacific is a Rosewood Resort located inside the Great Bear Rainforest on a private island.
