Paradise. That pretty much sums it up. You reach Nuk Tessli by float plane - an exhilarating trip over forest and mountain lakes. When we landed on the lake and taxied up to the dock, we were greeted by a gaggle of people and a dog. The dog - Sosa - has an ongoing feud with the float plane pilot but is very welcoming to everyone else. The people were led by Doron, who runs the place, and a whole set of young people from Israel who volunteer at Nuk Tessli. Doron, himself, is a warm and generous person. He has summited Everest (well before the recent traffic jams there) but still treated our hikes to nearby peaks as events worthy of celebration. The young volunteers lend the place an energy and enthusiasm that's infectious. They spend their days either building new parts of the compound or setting off on adventures in the mountains. They also cook the meals - which are delicious and plentiful. The hiking is stunning. We hike a lot in the mountains near Vancouver and we were struck by how quickly we got into the alpine at Nuk Tessli. We are used to hiking an hour or two on somewhat boring logging roads to get to the views (and to get back down at the end of the day). The Nuk Tessli hikes were beautiful from the outset and we reached alpine meadows filled with wildflowers in pretty short order. Doron was the perfect master of ceremonies for the hikes - he gave us the instructions we needed to get there and back but didn't baby us. It is possible to get a guide for each hike but they also allow you the latitude to do it on your own if you want. One of our days involved canoeing down three lakes with short hikes between each (they stashed canoes on each lake so you don't have to portage). Each lake was more beautiful, a bit more remote, and more filled with wildlife than the one before. We floated down the third lake, letting the wind take us while we ate our lunch. We did that, in part, so we could eat out in the breeze and away from the bugs. There are definitely mosquitos around Nuk Tessli but they were manageable with long sleeves and some bug spray - they certainly did not overwhelm our feeling of peace and paradise. The cabins are on the rustic side but very clean and comfortable, and each has its own composting toilet in an attached outbuilding. With the clean mountain air and days filled with activity, we had deep, refreshing sleeps. Nuk Tessli is the kind of place where you are surrounded by other people who enjoy the mountains and the company of like minded companions. The meals were at communal tables and meeting all the other travellers, Doron, his son, and the volunteers was a highlight. Taken altogether, we were very sorry to leave Doron's paradise and we are looking forward to going back again.

I have just spent 4 nights at Nuk Tessli with my brother and cousin. We had an amazing few days of backcountry hiking and canoeing. The team there were extremely welcoming and helped arrange a memorable trip. The food is good, accommodation in rustic cabins comfortable and the area stunning. I would highly recommend the lodge for anyone looking for a wilderness BC trip with a difference. The highlight of our stay was a day trip to Jacobson Glacier and I would strongly recommend this as a great add on.

With 3 mates we arrived in mid August by the only access available, a float plane from Nimpo Lake. This real remote wilderness with beautiful lakes, spectacular mountain treks, canoeing and glacier adventures were enjoyed during the 8 days . The accommodation provided and warm hospitality shown by Doron's family and the volunteer "woofers" was just part of the wonderful experience. Dining on homemade meals and freshly made bread (and home made beer) was a dining pleasure. The new larger '"hottub" and hot showers were greatly appreciated each evening. Creative measures to generate power was inspiring. The opportunity to visit Ape Lake for 2 days to visit the amazing glaziers was the highlight. To be able to pick up from the water small icebergs and to walk inside ice caves, stand on massive ice structure has left an everlasting desire to do it again. Thank you Nuk Tessli for an amazing experience.

We visited Nuk Tessli this summer as a family group of 3 adults and 3 kids (10-15 years old). We were looking for immersion in nature and a true taste of the wilderness in British Columbia and we certainly got what we asked for - the site is amazingly beautiful and tranquil, and the hikes, canoeing and glacier walking were all fantastic. What we were not expecting was how comfortable the cabin was (we were expecting to rough it a bit but were pleasantly surprised by the great beds and duvets and warm shower!), nor were we expecting such good company and such good food, with bread and cake baking to die for...truly stellar hospitality! We wish we could come spend a week here every summer...

This place is a once in a lifetime experience. Stuck in a remote location, at least halve the fun is because of the warm hospitality of Doron's family and the volunteers. You can just idle and read or stay in the hot tub, or kayak, or day hike in near or far places (via floatplane) guided by Doron or his son Sela. We stayed a week and the kids did not have a dull moment. 2 dayhikes, one day kayaking, one day remote trip to Jacobson glacier including glacer hike. 2 days at Nuk Tessli - kayaking to see the sunrise, fishing, carving, reading, hot tub... Doron climbed Mt. Everest 25 years ago and many more mountains, inc. the highest mountain in every continent. If you ask him he'll tell you about his story. He bought the place from Chris czajkowski 6 years ago and renovated the 3 cabins. You can read about her in wildernessdweller.com and about the founding of the place in her book 'and the river still sings' (available at AMAZON).
