There are times we wish we had seized life by the beachballs. Times we just did it, occasions we said yes instead of maybe, asked for what we wanted, partook in things a little outside our comfort zone. No time for looking back now, on to the next glorious day, right? Perhaps it’s time to seize those once-in-a-lifetime moments, to immerse yourself in the beauty and wonder of the world, to stand atop the mountain and say “I am here.”
SIWASH LAKE WILDERNESS RESORT
Dreams Do Come True
Remember those childhood dreams, the ones where you fearlessly rode horses into the sunset to save the day, sealed the romance with a kiss, roped like a pro? It’s not too late. There are more cowboy activities at Siwash Lake Wilderness Resort than you can shake a stick at, including the immersive Wilderness Explorer Program. After living the fantasy, kick back in your rustic barn loft hideaway or sleep beneath the stars on a private camp-out at Siwash Star Camp. Farm to table fare, gorgeous panoramic views of the heartland, secret trails and waterfalls…it’s time!
The Flying V
Ok, so you missed your chance at heavy-metal stardom; your flying V guitar is collecting dust in the closet. Save your eardrums for something else. We’ve got an aerial flying V that most will never see: migrations of numerous species of arctic birdlife. Listen to the din of nature and its calls, the snap of the cold under your boots, the belugas slipping into the water, the wrestling of polar bears closer than you ever thought possible. This is worth listening to. There are a few last remaining spots for Churchill Wild’s Hudson Bay Odyssey, so don’t delay!
TWEEDSMUIR PARK LODGE
Meet the Neighbours
Don’t you wish you’d gotten to know those neighbours, before they moved away? Don’t miss out on meeting ours! Here at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, you can meet The Grizzlies- they are often found on the grounds near the lodge. They’re hard to forget: these majestic animals are a thrill to see up close. To meet them is truly a humbling experience. And now is an excellent time to visit, when they’re raiding the pantry in the river. Don’t be shy, come say hello. Not only will you be safe, you’ll have the time of your life, river rafting, swimming, eating exquisitely prepared food… here’s your chance!
