Depending on your chosen destination and time of the year, wilderness lodges usually have an abundance of outdoor activities for you to choose from. You can hike in the wild and explore the surrounding area, spot a grizzly bear or moose, and go fishing, kayaking, or rafting during the summer months. In the winter, some wilderness lodges offer dog sledding, a Northern Lights hunt or snowmobile tours, while most of them will provide ice fishing, snowshoeing, wildlife and bird watching activities.

Our lodges are located out in the wild, where lights from the city don’t pollute the night sky and your chances of spotting auroras increase.
