Stunning scenery, delicious cuisine, hospitable, knowledgeable staff, comfortable accommodations, plethora of fun activities, immersed in nature, truly unplugged, a rarity! Some of the best experiences in the world are not the most easily accessible, and this is no exception. Nine hour drive from Vancouver, hour flight from Vancouver and 3.5 hour drive William's Lake, or charter flight to landing strip...

The accommodations are amazing-- especially considering that the lodge is in the "middle of nowhere." I stayed in Carl's House which was complete with two large bedrooms, two full baths, satellite TV, a small kitchen area, and a dining area....

3 days was a good introduction, but not long enough to enjoy the full "Chilko Experience." The meals and accommodation are first class, the scenery is gorgeous and for anyone who enjoys the outdoors there is a wealth of activities to fill the day, but what makes this place truly unique is the hard to describe combination of people, place...

I didn't want to go, but after having arm twisted and told I had to, I made the effort and I'm so glad I did.

The Chilko Experience was an inspirational life changing experience. My husband and I went there to celebrate our long overdue honeymoon and I couldn't have chosen a more perfect place. The family atmosphere, fabulous scenery & food, along with the endless excursions to go on make this an unforgettable & amazing place to visit.
