Frontier Lodge Is Your Gateway To Thaidene Nëné

People come to Frontier Lodge, situated on the incomparable East Arm of Great Slave Lake, for the world-class fishing, says general manager Corey Myers. But they come back for everything else.

“They come back for the muskox. They come back for the people. They come back for the place.”

Owned by the Łutsël K’é Dene First Nation, this comfortable and newly refurbished fly-in lodge has for the last 60 years welcomed those who dream of basking in the magic glow of the Northern Lights, photographing magnificent wildlife, and fishing to their heart’s content.

Now, Frontier Fishing Lodge is looking outside that tackle box and expanding its offerings beyond the unrivalled freshwater fishing and wilderness experiences it’s known for.

“People are coming for all these reasons and once they’re here, they realize there’s so much more to see and do,” says Myers. “A trip to the East Arm isn’t just about fishing, even though that’s what we’re known for.”

To better highlight its place as the gateway to Thaidene Nëné, Canada’s newest National Park Reserve, Frontier Lodge is now offering new cultural tourism packages to showcase this land of spiritual and cultural importance to local Dënesųłıné.

“It just ties back in with Thaidene Nëné and Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation’s vision of tourism on the East Arm,” says Myers.

Thaidene Nëné stretches from the revered crystal clear waters and towering cliffs of the East Arm all the way north to the Barrenlands. The National Park Reserve encompasses 26,525 square kilometres of ecologically diverse wilderness that transitions from boreal forest to tundra and positively explodes with life. This is the heart of the Lutsel K’e Dënesųłıné homeland and traditional territory, that the community spent 12 years of intense negotiations with Parks Canada to establish. The result of which is a new template of respectful co-management with Indigenous peoples that protects both the land and the water, but also Indigenous rights and title.

Visitors can forge their own ties to this land with Frontier Lodge’s Complete Thaidene Nëné Experience. The all-inclusive package offers a deeper connection to the pristine waters and rugged northern landscapes of Thaidene Nëné, but also a connection to the cultures and traditions of the local Dënesųłıné people. Travellers are whisked away on a chartered flight from Yellowknife to Frontier, where they enjoy private accommodations in fully renovated log cabins and the opportunity to learn about Dënesųłıné culture and experience how Dene have thrived in this land for thousands of years.

There’s also Frontier’s new Northern Lights package, offered from mid-August through September, where travellers can gaze up at the colourful kaleidoscope of northern night skies above, hundreds of kilometres from the big city lights. And, of course, there are still the famous fishing packages, where anglers can cast a line in one of the deepest lakes in the world to catch trophy Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling and Northern Pike.

All of these packages include Frontier’s luxurious amenities, including an updated lodge, renovated cabins with private washrooms, Finnish sauna, complimentary WIFI, licensed bar and lounge, and onsite chef and baker.

Frontier is taking bookings now for its Thaidene Nëné Experience and other packages for 2022. The lodge is also offering staycation packages this summer, from mid-July to mid-August, for NWT residents.
