With four log-cabin lodges, two restaurants, a spa and countless ways to explore the pristine mountainous landscape in its backyard, a visit to this lodge is something you won’t soon forget. For the ultimate Canadian experience, rent a canoe and spend the afternoon paddling Island Lake, cruising along the coastline looking for moose and other wildlife. You are guaranteed a first-class view of the spectacular mountain ranges and old-growth forests from this perspective. The Lazy Lizard bike trail located on the lower Island Lake property is a 7-kilometre machine-built, single-track trail suitable for the whole family. This popular mountain bike trail will lead you through towering old-growth trees to stunning lookouts. Relax and unwind with first-class views of the spectacular mountain ranges and old-growth forests. Guided hikes and 100 kilometres of hiking trails make Island Lake Lodge a nature lover’s paradise that everyone can experience. Choose from short hikes like the Goldilocks Trail, which boasts dramatic alpine views, or gear up to take on the 22-kilometre Heiko’s Trail for waterfalls, caves, mountain passes and snowfields. The patio of the Bear Lodge Bistro is the perfect place for a cold beverage and tasty meal after a day on the trails. This sunny patio will give you a view of the iconic Three Bears mountain peaks rising above and a taste of locally sourced cuisine. Feet up, lay back, soak in a view of a lifetime. Unplug from the hustle and relax on the private patio outside your room with company and a view that won’t disappoint. The only thing that could make this better is something to sip on while you sit in awe—perhaps a locally-crafted tea from the retail boutique or a bottle of wine from the impressive 3,000-bottle wine library.
