When we say that Bear Claw is off the beaten path, we really mean it. The lodge is 1 hour north of New Hazelton, 2 hours north of Smithers, 4 hours northeast of Prince Rupert, and 6 hours northwest of Prince George.


The two closest airports are Smithers (YYD) and Terrace (YXT), and both are serviced by several major and regional airlines. Most stay packages include shuttle transfers to and from both airports, because getting here on your own can be quite the adventure.


If you’re feeling courageous or are visiting us from somewhere that doesn’t warrant a flight, send us an email and we’ll get gladly get you directions. Just make sure you print them out in advance, as wildlife, weather, and a spotty signal for Google Maps have a habit of adding unwanted complexity to an already challenging drive.
