Overview

For the adventurous spirit looking to answer the call of the wild, this wilderness lodge in the Northwest Territories offers a variety of all-inclusive adventure packages to suit every taste. Accessible only by air, this fly-in facility is located in the rugged country north of Great Slave Lake and offers a truly remote wilderness experience while still offering all of the comforts of home.

Tour Highlights

  • Northern lights
  • Great Slave Lake
  • Magrum Lake
  • Grace Lake
  • Flora, fauna and animals
  • Remote wilderness experience

During the summer season at this wilderness lodge, enjoy the natural surroundings and clean clear air while you explore the lake by canoe, kayak or motor boat. Hike nature's untouched garden and learn to identify our abundant variety of flora, fauna, and animals. Sit in the tipi and listen to the legends and history of our native Dene people learn their crafts and traditions. Fish the lake then learn how to smoke your catch in the traditional native way. The solar heated lake is often warm enough for swimming, too! It's like summer camp without the rules.

The brief summer is a magical time at the lodge. The lake warms quickly, and all around the forest is bursting with new growth. At this lodge, you'll find lake trout, northern pike and whitefish. Pickerel (walleye) can be fished on two adjoining lakes, Magrum, and Grace Lake, a very short walk over from the lodge. The fishing guides can introduce you to the best techniques and make suggestions for maximizing your chances for success.

Winter months offer a different and exciting array of activities, such as cross-country skiing on over 20 km of groomed trails, snowshoeing, ice fishing, dog sledding, snowmobiling and more. Learn winter survival skills by building a quinzee snow hut or try your hand at ice sculpting. The aurora borealis (northern lights) often dance across the sky throughout the fall and winter months. They are one of God's greatest gifts to the north and they are perhaps the most spectacular natural phenomenon on earth.

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. The main floor serves as the lounge, with bar, dining room and library. The main floor also houses the kitchen and a small office, and his and hers showers and washrooms, shared with cabin guests. Unusally 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. Each has its own lake view, outside camp fire pit and outdoor toilet close by. They all have electric lighting and power and feature a minimum of four beds with down duvets. Showers and bathrooms are a five minute walk to the lodge.  All cabins are heated by woodstove.  For those who like the easy life, but with the coziness of real fire, two of our cabins now have pellet stoves which make no demands on fire-lighting skills!

Some cabins have a private ensuite toilet facility and other cabins have access to the shared Aurora Comfort Station which is a heated toilet facility and wash basin with a skylight.

The lodge and all cabins enjoy free wireless internet access.  They are all non-smoking.

This 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 called a Clivus Multrum.
