Queen Charlotte Adventure Resort in the Haida Gwaii

The Raven and the Eagle are key figures in the culture of the Haida and you share their bird's eye view of their ancient land as your helicopter prepares
for touchdown. You see the Lodge standing behind a full kilometer of spectacular beachfront. Backdropped by gorgeous mountains and ensconced in
lush rainforest, the lodge creates a warm home here in the land of the salmon and Spirit Bear.

As you make the short walk from the dock to your lodgings you are 600 miles north of Vancouver Island. Sheltered from the powerful Pacific Ocean by
a mountainous west coast, you find yourself enthralled by your new surroundings here on the east shore of Canada's most precious jewel, the Queen
Charlotte Islands
. As you see the heads of sea lions playfully bobbing in the Hectate Straight you look towards the west coast of northern British
Columbia
.

The chopper returns to civilization. As you hear the fading sounds of the engine blades the sense of peace and solitude that you have come here to find
settles into you.

The lodge is the pearl in this 31 acre oyster. The large lot rests at the base of the Haida Gwaii National Reserve. It allows for environmentally sensitive
development while being assured to remain a unique and remote destination for fisherman, adventurers, and groups of corporate team builders. The
intent is to provide a unique experience by way of encouraging the visitors to live in the mountains, in treehouses, in beachhouses, hike to outdoor
steam baths and plunge pools, and view the wildlife from an outlook tower...
