I visited the luxurious wilderness resort in British Columbia with a 2-year waitlist that’s like a summer camp for the world’s most elite travelers

Nimmo Bay, a luxury resort in British Columbia, can take up to two years to get into during peak season.
A former fishing lodge nestled in the wilderness, this resort has become a destination among elite travelers for wellness, adventure, and luxury.
Trevor Morrow, who travels the world, documenting his experiences in his blog, Trevor Morrow Travel, got the chance to visit.

Located on a remote inlet along the northwest shore of British Columbia and nestled among the dense, green pine trees of the Great Bear Rainforest, Nimmo Bay is one of the world’s most luxurious and exclusive wilderness resorts. It’s accessible to guests only via float plane or helicopter, and it can take an advanced reservation of up to two years to get in.

This family-owned and operated former fishing lodge has evolved since opening 30 years ago to offer a well-rounded slate of wild adventures, from tame pursuits like foraging for wild berries to over-the-top adventures like taking a helicopter to otherwise inaccessible alpine lakes for stand-up paddleboarding.

Nimmo Bay has the distinction of being one of National Geographic’s Unique Lodges of the World, a small collection of properties selected for, among other qualifiers, the rare experiences they offer and their commitment to local communities and the environment. 

The luxury resort has also been named one of the best luxury lodges in British Columbia by CNN, and boasts a five-star TripAdvisor rating.

Nimmo Bay offered to host me to experience the far-flung resort and its growing spa program firsthand. Other than my stay, I was not given any monetary compensation for the trip. Here’s what it’s like to visit Nimmo Bay:

Getting to Nimmo Bay is part of the adventure and required three planes: one from my home city of Los Angeles to Vancouver, a propeller plane from Vancouver to Port Hardy, and a floatplane from there to Nimmo Bay.

The flight to Nimmo Bay offers stunning views of the Broughton Archipelago and surrounding mountains. Some guests fly via private jet directly into Port Hardy, where one or more of the resort’s A-star helicopters await to immediately whisk them away to Nimmo Bay.

Landing on the water was exhilarating, as was getting my first peek at Nimmo Bay as the float plane putted up to the resort’s dock.
