When we say that Bear Claw is off the beaten path, we really mean it....yet we are still straightforward to get to. 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.

Getting here involves flying into either Smithers (YYD) or Terrace (YXT), and both are serviced by several major and regional airlines. Bear Claw Lodge only offers full lodge buyouts (i.e. we do not offer only nightly accommodation). Our buyout 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 a message 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.
