After years of procrastination, I finally made my way up to the Queen Charlotte's to experience everything I've heard and was I happy I did. Relying on feedback of friends, I trolled multiple sites for last minute deals and ended up with Hippa Lodge because of the stunning visual their website provided. I was not disappointed.
From the booking experience with Lisa and co, to reception with Pierre and his team, to the final send off, everything was top shelf. We had a newbie guide (Doug) who did a great job in getting us around and we were lucky to have his local insight on the area. Plenty of belly laughs and never mind the fishing!! Pierre was also kind enough to take us out one morning and what an experience we enjoyed with his obvious passion for fishing.
Outstanding trip and I'm already checking the calendar for when we should be headed back next year.
Highly recommended for an overall experience. Looking forward to returning.
