Winter Adventures with Eskakwa
Lady Evelyn Park Retreat at Eskakwa Lodge
5 to 12 Cost:
We operate the only outpost lodge
within the Lady Evelyn-Smoothwater Wilderness Park in Temagami and the
location is breathtaking! Perched
above Bridal Veil Falls on the Lady Evelyn River, the base camp provides a
spectacular view of the river and is centrally located within traveling
distance of six other waterfalls. Flight
in and out of Sudbury to our lodge is provided.
We’ll spend a week exploring the park interior by ski and
snowshoe, photograph wildlife, stargaze and enjoy the silent ambience of a
truly isolated wonderland. Rustic,
wood-heated cabin accommodation is provided; meals are prepared
country-style on a wood-fired range.
Participants must be prepared for delays in transportation due to
Forest Conservation Reserve in
26-28, February 2-4 & 16-18 Cost:
per person 3-days
are few old-growth pine forests left in Ontario and the Cardwell Stand is
one of Muskoka’s best representative sites.
The forest is relatively isolated and we’ll be camping out in
tents and quin-zhees (snow shelters).
Our base camp will provide a communal, wood-heated shelter,
blending high-tech with traditional winter camping equipment.
These expeditions focus on winter travel and camping skills, choice
of equipment, reading weather and ice conditions and learning about
Ontario’s beautiful primal forests.
Your guide/instructor will be Hap Wilson, author of Mapping
Muskoka Wilds – an eco-adventure guide.
