“Just…CHILL.” A common refrain in the home of the teenager. It’s hard for us to admit when they’re right, but maybe they’re on to something? It’s time to hit the RESET button. We know the way to that elusive chill zone; let us help your family find it! Check out the best Canadian wilderness experiences the Magnificent 7 has on offer, as summer is right around the corner. Leave the last-minute planning to us, grab a bag, and let’s go chill.
THE PACIFIC YELLOWFIN
Decompress your stress! Let the sound of the ocean lapping against your own chartered boat soothe the soul. Cruise the pristine waters of Desolation Sound in beautiful BC; drop anchor in a secluded bay and swim in the warmest waters North of Mexico. The stunning scenery of fjords, mountains, and wildlife stills the heart and calms the mind. Top it off with freshly caught seafood, and there it is…mind blown.
TWEEDSMUIR PARK LODGE
Bella Coola is a phenomenal summer destination. Join us for a walk through the Great Bear Rainforest, a drift down the scenic Atnarko River, as well as immerse yourself in First Nations culture. Safely meet the neighbours–The Grizzlies, as you share their big backyard. After your many adventures, gather around the fire-pit with a fine beverage and share your tales of wonder and beauty. Discover this gem of peaceful solace.
NIMMO BAY WILDERNESS RESORT
The Japanese know how to “Forest bathe” – to immerse yourself in the presence of trees and just be. It’s proven to be good for your health; we invite you to try. Walk into the Great Bear Rainforest and listen, inhale the air, be present. Kayak through coastal inlets or just relax in your cosy seaside cabin, do morning yoga, eat sustainable gourmet food. Chillaxing at its best!
SIWASH LAKE WILDERNESS RESORT
Come and sway on the back of a horse, taking in the panoramic views of the heartland. Remember how good it feels to laugh? Cut loose and try it all! Archery, shooting, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, fly fishing…or just stroll the trails. There’s so much to love; you’ll forget the hustle of work. Here you can connect with the land, the animals, and truly discover each other.
The backdrop of the Boreal forest: remote and otherworldly Arctic beauty. All summer we have a menagerie of creatures to see. View the polar bears and their cubs, swim with gleaming white belugas. Perhaps plan your trip for late summer to coincide with the fall migration of Arctic nesters- and bring your camera. Take in the scenic tundra, the Aurora Borealis, the calm and quiet; be fascinated again. It’s time.
BELLA COOLA HELI SPORTS
Bella Coola Heli Sports takes chilling seriously. Go to where the powder is pristine; touch the sky before heading down the side of a mountain, snowflakes catching in your wide grin. Shake off your carving spray and your layered gear back at the chalet, with a warm tipple and some one-upmanship tales by the fireside. Heli-skiing is cold chillin’ at it’s best – but there’s only a few places left for the upcoming winter. Don’t miss your chill, get in on the action while you still can!
