Klahoose Wilderness Resort


British Columbia's premier Indigenous destination resort, Klahoose offers an intimate coastal experience, that will leave you transformed by the beauty of the Klahoose territory, their Nation's unique culture, and the region's exceptional wildlife.

Situated in the heart of Desolation Sound, Klahoose Wilderness Resort is located on Homfray Channel between the Coast Mountain peaks of British Columbia's Sunshine Coast and the Northern Islands of the Salish Sea.  All visitors meet at the lodge’s patio, where they are greeted in the customary Klahoose manner.  Stress immediately vanishes as osprey call across the Sound, the vision of an orca's particular dorsal fin breaks the water's surface, and the sea breeze drifts through the encompassing conifer woodland.

About Desolation Sound and Toba Inlet

Desolation Sound name was given by Captain George Vancouver, but the Coast Salish individuals have lived here since ancient times.  Villages sites through the sound have been occasional homes for hundreds and even thoughts of First Nation individuals. Today Desolation Sound is famous for its characteristic excellence, rich wildlife is woven into the fabric of the individuals that have lived here for thousands of years before the European contact. Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park has been known by boater as probably the calmest and hottest waters on the Pacific Coast.

Since time before memory, the Toba Inlet has been the home of the Klahoose individuals. This is one of the main inlets on the BC coast. Toba Inlet is generally short when compared with other major coastal inlets with a normal width of 2.5 km and length just around 35 km. At the mouth of the bays is the Toba River and Klite River. The bay is flanked by tower iceberg peaks with waterfalls and is home to numerous grizzly bears.
