What to Pack

For your Wild West Coast Adventure

The weather on the North West Coast of Vancouver Island is substantially different than Southern British Columbia.  Although we enjoy many of the same sunny warm days, the temperatures vary much more between night and day time.  Similarly the weather can change several times in a single day regardless of the forecast.  So be prepared for it all. 

If you come prepared for BC spring or fall weather (rain and shine) you will be adequately prepared.

Special Health related foods:
Although the lodge prepares a range of foods buffet style that is suitable for most diets, the location being remote precludes our ability to get specialty foods (ie//wheat free/gluten free bread).  If you require a celiac meal plan please contact the office in advance and we can advise of what we have and what to bring.
