Travel to the last frontier of northern Canada, where your adventure will begin with a short ski-plane flight from Yellowknife to a secluded wilderness lodge. Let your senses come alive. You'll revel in natural surroundings and inhale the cleansing fragrance of spruce. You will feast your eyes on the northern vista in all its glory and drink in its beauty.
Aurora watchers and stargazers agree there are few better places to see the Aurora than from this lodge. From mid-August, when night skies turn a velvety black to mid October when the lake begins to freeze, guests can be treated to late night shows of the northern lights. On calm nights the lake also reflects the sky, doubling the awe-inspiring images. Autumn is a great time to sit outside in comfort and just lean back and enjoy the show. Day activities during this time of year include fishing, canoeing, kayaking and hiking.
In the winter the adventure continues. The lodge itself, is welcoming atop a rolling, snow covered hill. Inside the main lodge, or in one of our cabins, a cozy wood fire offers warm comfort. Through the day, follow well-marked trails on skis, snowshoes or by snowmobile. Relax with your favorite beverage in the early evening before sitting down to a gourmet dinner prepared by our red seal chef. Later, on clear nights, the Aurora may dance overhead. Enjoy the lights from one of our decks, our hot tub, or snuggled under a duvet in your room. The lodge even offers Aurora Wake Up Service to catch the Northern lights at their best.
One may ask why not just stay in Yellowknife and view aurora? To experience northern lights to the fullest potential you have to get away from city lights and the "light glow" of any populated area. This lodge is fly in only -- there are no other camps or cabins within many miles -- you are in the true wilderness with no light obstructions to hinder your view of the aurora. The main lodge was designed with aurora viewing in mind. All bedrooms offer prime viewing as do the dining, lounge areas, aurora room, decks, sauna deck and hot tub. Come experience the northern lights playing directly over the Lodge in awesome multicoloured displays. You'll have an exclusive, front row seat for nature's own light show after dark.
This lodge lies below the Auroral oval, the enormous band of energy that circles the North Magnetic Pole. Here you are as close to the Aurora as any earthbound spectator ever gets. If the weather is clear, chances are good that you'll see the Aurora on almost any night between mid-August and mid April
