Canada is a country that evokes a sense of untouched landscapes and pristine wilderness teeming with wildlife, where pure mountain air blows across crystal clear glacial lakes. There is no better way to experience this tranquillity than with a stay in a luxury lodge, and Canada has some indulgent options for those looking to do exactly this. Here is my top 5 luxury lodges in Canada.
Clayoquot Wildnerness Lodge
It’s a 55 minute sea plan across the Strathcona Provinicial Park to reach the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, and this property well and truly lives up to its name. 23 luxurious, safari style tents make up the accommodation, each lavishly decorated with antique furniture and boasting some impressive touches such as down duvets and cotton bathrobes.
For those wanting to take advantage of their remote surroundings, activities include clay pigeon shooting, kayaking, mountain biking and horse riding, while those simply wanting to relax will welcome a visit to the property’s spa, where guests can take in their remarkable surroundings from the comfort of an outdoor hot tub.
Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort
Ever heard of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest? If so you’ll know it’s is one of the largest tracts of unspoiled temperate rainforest left in the world, and one of my favourite places to stay in this area is Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort. This property is a family-owned resort offering an intimate experience in a fantastic location.
