This untouched Canadian wilderness is serene, sublime nature at its finest. Beautiful mountains, lakes, trees, vegetation, with a wildlife diversity bringing it fully alive. Remarkably all is easily accessible. A rail backbone takes you to land vistas, bush (float) planes wing you to lakes and islands. Sample as you wish – your personal Wilderness Experience can be:
Pristine - enjoy the peacefulness of true, no-man nature
Creative – feed your inner artist
Velvet –  indulge and luxuriate in natural surroundings
