The Chilko Experience Wilderness Resort - Grizzly Viewing From A Hot TubThe Chilko  

British Columbia is one of the few temperate wildernesses left on Earth. This Lodge is the kind of place that offers 'Grizzly Bear Viewing Packages' - awesome! The Lodge has a no mobile phone policy, and everything is geared towards creating a serene retreat from the insanity of modern life.

The main Lodge is a fire-warmed, wooden-floor rugged sanctuary. You can stay in the 'tower' where huge windows welcome the dawn and sunsets are carved into your bedroom hollow. There are also many individual huts to choose from, each with its own personality.

There are loads of wilderness activities; experienced guides undertake fishing, riding, hiking, kayaking, and animal watching, so you won't have to worry about getting lost in a mighty wilderness. There is also massage, a gym, and on-hand yoga instructors. There is also plenty of opportunities to read a book by a fire, one of life's little luxuries.

Lake Chilko

Chilko Lake is the largest high-elevation freshwater lake in North America and is an important habitat for salmon. Chilko Lake is part of the Ts'yl-os Provincial Park. In 2019, the Province of British Columbia decided to change the lake's name to Tŝilhqox Biny upon the request of the tribal council.

The wilderness lake in British Columbia is surrounded by a lush forest and one of the most exceptional mountain scenery. The area is frequented by water sports enthusiasts, kayakers, fishermen, backpackers, and campers.

The crystal clear waters of Lake Chliko stretches 40 mi (65 kilometers), and its deepest point reaches 1,201 feet (366 meters).

The Chilko Experience Wilderness Resort's log cabins are set amid the dense forest of British Columbia next to the magical lake.
