Sleep Somewhere Spectacular At A NWT Wilderness Lodge

In the Northwest Territories, the natural beauty of the North is waiting for you just outside your door: Such is life at a fly-in wildness lodge in the NWT. Wilderness lodges operate in winter and summer, so you can experience world-famous fishing, unforgettable aurora viewing, and awe-inspiring hikes, wholly immersed in the timeless landscapes of the North. Enjoy comfortable accommodations and find your unforgettable Northern adventure.

These remote lodges offer fully equipped refurbished yet rustic lodges that allow guests to enjoy that authentic-feeling experience without sacrificing comfort. Some lodges have shared facilities, while others offer luxurious private cabins. On-staff chefs and housekeeping provide immaculate hospitality.  Wireless internet is usually available, and off-grid lodges often run on alternative energy sources such as solar panels to power sustainable operations.

Picture yourself on the deck of your wilderness lodge cabin in the Northwest Territories: It’s early morning, and you’re enjoying a cup of coffee or tea; The lake is totally still, and the boats are pulled up on the sandy beach below, awaiting your day-trip fishing excursion. Imagine going on a midday hike  through the pristine landscape and coming to a silent stop as you spot a family of muskox wandering a distant esker. By night, in the late summer skies, you spot swirling banners of the world’s best Aurora; the green, yellow and pink waves of Aurora Borealis highlight the trees and lakes around the lodge. In winter, you’re watching dancing beams fill the night sky and illuminate the pristine snow from the comfort of the main building’s window walls or from a cozy steaming outdoor hot tub.

Many lodges offer knowledgeable guides for excursions, whether it be inspiring nature hikes and boat tours, Northern wildlife viewing adventures, recreational access to kayaks and canoes, authentic Indigenous cultural experiences and more.

Wilderness lodges feel remote, without actually being far from the comfort and safety of an established community. You may be as close as 15 minutes by float plane to your lodge but you will feel the serenity of the pristine wilderness, the privacy and authenticity of a cabin out in the wilds of the North, backed by the luxury, comfort, and legendary Northern hospitality of a resort.

Experiencing the natural beauty of the NWT is an unforgettable experience and a way to connect with a pace of life that sets your mind at ease. Staying at a wilderness lodge brings the spectacular North right to your doorstep and surrounds you with all the comforts and amenities of a relaxing getaway. There’s no better way to experience what makes the NWT so spectacular.
