2018. For many, a time of resolutions, of forward thinking motivation, of change. The one thing that we all wish we had more of?
There is no app for that, no matter how hard we try to organize ourselves. Where does the time go? There’s no machine that takes us back, to a simpler age, to when our loved ones were still here, or the day that was perfect. All we have is the day ahead, if we’re lucky. Create the time you need, away from it all. Savour every moment – the time is now.
SIWASH LAKE WILDERNESS RESORT
Break of dawn (5:00 am) The horses paw at the ground, let out sighs of steamy breath. They’re ready for you to wake with the sun. Grasses unfurl, the lake ripples, waiting. Rise and shine with a cup of steaming coffee on the balcony of your luxurious, rustic barn loft at Siwash Lake Wilderness Resort. Perfect for families or just a few, this hideaway has it all: fantastic location, delicious food, horseback riding, and a wilderness spa. Enjoy the morning fly-fishing, trail hiking, or bird watching, just a few of many activities that show off the beauty of the land.

Morning Mists (8:00 am) The crunch of the artic snow underneath your footsteps snaps you awake. You’ve caught the first light and ventured forth into the gleaming white world. Wait…stop. Put the camera up, adjust your shutter speed, and exhale. Here is the shot you’ve been waiting for. You’re in the true North, amongst some of the most majestic animals on the planet, and they only live here. Churchill Wild’s tours sell out, so don’t delay!
TWEEDSMUIR PARK LODGE
High Noon (12:00 pm) The sun is high, the world is in full bloom. Ready? One, two three…run into the river, let it fold you in. Time to reclaim that kid-like exuberance in all of us! The Atnarko River at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is a true simple pleasure. Drift down the river surrounded by the towering peaks of the Coast Range and lush foliage of the Great Bear Rainforest on the Bella Coola Explorer package – and enjoy trail hiking, fishing, helicopter-sightseeing, helicopter accessed hiking and the rustic elegance of the Lodge. Delicious fare will keep you energized and ready for all your adventure time!

BELLA COOLA HELI SPORTS
Afternoon sun (2:00 pm) A long beam of sunlight reaches around the mountain, casting bluish shadows on the snow. You won’t notice. You’ll be moving too fast, carving a fluid line into the powder, leaving behind marks of a skier in the sway of joy. This is what you live for – feeling gravity’s pull and defying it – for a moment time stands still. Come and breathe air untouched by the world, direct from the edges of beauty. Bella Coola Heli Sports offers Luxury accommodation, world class service and food, and heli-skiing.

PACIFIC YELLOWFIN CHARTERS
Evening Light (6:00 pm) The family time has been amazing, slipping off the giant slide into the sea, chasing the wake of the dolphin pod, and finally, catching your dinner. You get to cook your catch, and the Pacific Yellowfin’s epic seafood feast is an experience not to be missed. Spread out the newspaper and dig in. Recount your seafaring adventures over a meal like no other! Limited boat charters in Desolation Sound remain for July and August.
