Information

Summer is a magical time at Blachford Lake. The lake warms quickly, and all around the forest is bursting with new growth and life. Located 60 air miles southeast of Yellowknife, the lodge can only be reached by floatplane and is the only lodge on the lake. The pilot will provide a scenic flight to and from the lodge, and you’ll be amazed at the pristine Canadian wilderness and countless remote lakes that unfold beneath you. While the lodge is secluded, it is modern and complete with all the comforts of home.

If you’re a fisher you'll find lake trout and northern pike here, as well as walleye on two adjoining lakes. Your fishing guide will introduce you to the best techniques and make suggestions for maximizing your chances for success.  You’ll have full access to 16’ boats with 15 HP 4-stroke motors to head out for a day of fishing on the 25km long lake.  There are many sheltered bays and countless islands to try your luck for lakers and pike.  

There are also canoes and kayaks at the lodge for you to paddle around quietly, explore the shorelines, and look for wildlife and the many birds that call this area home.  Twice a day, there are interpretive hikes and programs that delve deeper into the human and natural history of this area.  Of course, you can always set out for day hikes on your own across the magnificent Canadian Shield.

By mid-August, when the skies begin to darken earlier in the evening, the aurora borealis (northern lights) often dance across the sky throughout the late summer and fall nights. The aurora is one of the most spectacular natural phenomena on earth, and this area is among the best in the world to view them consistently.

This secluded wilderness lodge destination is far away from the noise and bustle of the city and is the perfect Canadian adventure vacation in the Northwest Territories. It is ideal for couples, families, and even corporate groups or retreats.

There are five large guest rooms on the second floor of the main lodge, with access to shared showers and washrooms (no private washrooms in the rooms). Lodge rooms are dressed with down duvets and feature huge windows with expansive views. There are two viewing decks upstairs and an outdoor hot tub overlooking the lake. The main floor serves as the lounge, with a licensed bar, dining room, and library. The space is perfect for corporate groups and meetings before you head out for some team building and fun.  The main floor also houses the kitchen and a small office, and his and hers showers and washrooms, shared with cabin guests. Unusual for such a remote facility, our washrooms not only have hot running water but also hotel-style toilets; you would hardly know they are the eco-friendly composting kind!

There are five log guest cabins to choose from – separated for privacy. The cabins are very close to the lake, and each has its own lake view, an outside campfire pit, and ensuite composting toilet with a wash basin. They all have electric lighting and power and feature a minimum of four beds with down duvets. The showers and the main bathrooms are less than a five-minute walk up to the lodge.  All cabins are heated by a wood stove for those chilly northern mornings.

The lodge and all cabins enjoy free wireless internet access so you can post about your amazing experiences.  They are all non-smoking.

The lodge prides itself on its environmentally sensitive footprint. There are solar panels, wireless Internet, two high-efficiency wood-burning stoves, and a remarkable waterless composting toilet system.

All meals are included, and gourmet meals are prepared fresh each day.  The lodge focuses on quality fresh food and even grows its own veggies onsite in its organic greenhouse.  The menus feature a tasty blend of Northern gourmet favorites. The talented chef creates superb menus with fresh seasonal vegetables and a variety of fresh fish, beef, lamb, and chicken to please every appetite. All dishes, from bread to desserts, are made on-site. The chef will gladly prepare your freshly caught fish, too.

The lodge is a licensed facility with a fully stocked bar and wine list. They maintain a selection of wines, beers, spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages.

Guide information

Two hours of guided fishing are included to introduce you to the lake and the best fishing spots.  Fishing guides are available on all packages for an additional cost (4 hours @ $175 per person or 8 hours @ $265 per person).  For non-fishers, two daily guided interpretive tours of two hours are included in the price.
