Escape Package

Disconnect from the virtual and reconnect to the natural. 
 


Overview

Our Escape Package is designed for those looking to disconnect from everyday life and relax in a beautiful setting, yet with the flexible option to add just as much adventure and activity into their stay as their energies and interests permit. While many of our guests come from Europe on longer itineraries, our Escape Package has been especially created for our Canadian neighbours looking for an escape from the urban jungle or a reconnection with family and friends in a wilderness setting. 

Our Escape Package includes round-trip water taxi transportation from northern Vancouver Island, accommodation in one of our comfortable, west coast styled private rooms with spectacular ocean views, cozy fireplaces and ensuite bathrooms. A full breakfast, lunch and 3 course supper are also included. You can then choose from a menu of at least 15 different activity options, priced individually as add-ons, so you can design your own holiday with the activity level that most perfectly suits your interests. 

From sea kayaking to forest bathing to bear viewing to whale watching and much more, the lodge is your base for your adventure gateway to the beautiful Broughton Archipelago Marine Park and the Great Bear Rainforest. Check out the full menu of activities that are available to enhance your stay with us.
