Hike Through a Rainforest
We invite you to take a walk in an old-growth forest. The Kwalate valley is a 20 minute boat ride from the lodge. This is one of the few pristine watersheds left in this area. Over the past few years, Knight Inlet Lodge has been building a trail alongside the beautiful Kwalate River.
We will walk up the valley to large moss-covered old growth trees and stunning waterfalls. Your guide will inform you about the rainforest and the various plants and wildlife that abound.
Explore the Valley Floor
The walk is mostly along the valley floor so anyone who is comfortable walking at a leisurely pace for a few hours will find this a very pleasant experience. The trail is rough and uneven and winds around rocks and logs but we feel this trail would suit the abilities of most of our guests. Many people describe this as a hike but for some this is more of a comfortable walk than a strenuous hike. Total distance covered can be anywhere from 4 - 8 kilometers and will include a steep section right at the beginning of the hike.
We often plan this walk for the morning so we can take a packed lunch and enjoy a picnic beside the river, returning to the lodge in time for an afternoon activity.
