Nimmo Bay Resort

The Nimmo Bay Resort is a wilderness adventure destination located along the coast of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia. Here, guests can relax in their chalets and enjoy all the great outdoors has to offer by hiking, kayaking, fishing and rock climbing — and they can do so with their eco-conscience at ease. Nimmo Bay has a water-powered hydro system and extensive recycling and refuge-elimination programs, and because it realizes that it can’t completely erase its carbon footprint, the resort purchases carbon offsets. The resort also uses eco-friendly soaps and cleaning products, and it purchases organic food and supplies from local vendors.
