Lodge Facilities

Accommodations consist of private cabins complete with kitchens, showers, generator and solar powered electricity. Main central lodge building with lounge area or groups of 10 or more can book the camp exclusively and use the lodge for cooking and dining.



Arctic Fishing

 We provide unlimited use of 16ft boats &  25HP motors. You bring your fishing tackle and groceries (or order them in advance) and the incredible fish provide the action. Lake Trout, Pike & Arctic Grayling are all active from ice break up in late June to freeze up in September.

Adventure Photography tours

We offer curated photography tours to meet your needs. The experience is phenomenal, in the early summer see a sun that never seems to set, rare arctic wildlife and spectacular landscapes. The ground changes colour in  the late summer and nights offer darkness for the Aurora to perform.

All of this with a self guided adventure where you set your own schedule. Self guided canoeing adventures are also available.
