If you love the outdoors with the comfort of a beautifully built lodge and cabins this is the place to go. All cabins have 2 queen beds, private baths and stunning views of Pedersen lagoon and glacier just outside the window. The meals are good but not outstanding, this is the wilderness and you don't come here for your 'haute cuisine' experience!
Activities are mostly on the water - kayaking and canoeing. Staff is very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. One thing you can't do here is hiking, even though it's advertised in the brochure. A 1 hour stroll along the beach, on the nature trail or to Pedersen Glacier - that's simply not hiking for me. There are virtually no trails and you can't hike anywhere on your own.
Anyway, the setting is simply breathtaking, wildlife and flowers are plentiful - and this is ecotourism at its best.
