Quaint B&B style accommodation at Bathurst Inlet Lodge
More than a lodge
You’ll be lodged in a historic Hudson’s Bay Trading Post, Oblate mission, cabins or Taipana House. They have been transformed into a haven for naturalists. There is an extensive library for birders. The communal dining room encourages everyone to share their favourite stories from the day's adventures. All meals are included during your stay at the Lodge. Lunch is a make-your-own sandwich buffet, available after breakfast. You pack what you want to eat when we break for lunch during our excursions.
Specific rooms are not guaranteed:
- The church - 3 rooms
- The cabins overlooking the Burnside Delta
- Taipana House - 2 bedrooms
- Trading Post warehouse
- DEW Line radio operators living quarters
Each room is carefully outfitted for comfort, decorated with photos or northern art. Beds are comfortable, and bedding is supplied; you do not have to use sleeping bags at Bathurst Inlet. You may request specific accommodation, but exact room configurations are not guaranteed. Please note that solo travellers can request to share with another travellers of the same gender. This must be done at time of booking. Request-share guests never pay the single supplement.
Bathrooms in some facilities are shared; some cabins have their own. Most facilities have showers, but the new cabins share a heated shower house.
What do you need to bring?
A water bottle or canteen to carry water with you. Sunglasses are imperative, because of the reflection from the water, and where there is ice, the ice. Binoculars, even if you are not a birder. You will want a pair when a muskox comes into view. A daypack is handy for caring your lunch, canteen and any layers of clothing you remove when the sun warms the tundra.
