We stayed at the lodge for 5 days and had a wonderful time enjoying the beautiful surroundings, hiking with the resident dog Joey, kayaking or paddle boating (not fishermen) and, most importantly, seeing the aurora at night! Gordon and his staff were wonderful and very accommodating. Pat made plenty of delicious food and fresh cookies, and the rooms were cozy, clean and warm. The day we left the bald eagle that had been roosting across the lake flew over and landed on the tree outside our window. I would most certainly recommend this lodge!!

My family had an amazing time at the lodge. We were great with wonderful hospitality. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Our fishing guide was amazing we caught a lot of trout and pike. Meals were excellent, we enjoyed the hot tub, and a Campfire. Thanks again for a memorable time.

We went up to YDL for a team building retreat. It was a truly fantastic experience. The staff at YDL are amazing. Gord Gin really knows how to look after his guests. They always check in to see what you need so they can have things prepared when you need it. The food was fantastic, the location is absolutely beautiful, and the dogs did a great job of keeping the bears away!

Sportfishing and Aurora Lodging

We have the most fun! The world's finest Aurora viewing experience combined with wilderness adventure, hiking, canoeing,  kayaking and Sportfishing all disconnected from any human  population.  It is quiet here where all you hear at night is the wildlife and your heart beat.

We are located 55 air kilometers from our nearest neighbour and we are only accessible by float or ski plane. In the winter, special arrangements can be made to snowmobile to our facility. We are totally self sufficient and generate our own solar energy and supply satellite internet. All supplies including fresh food are flown in weekly. We are world renowned for our fresh caught fish fry shore picnics and fish taco dinners. Our BBQ nights are to die for.

What sets us apart is our friendly and experienced staff who love the outdoors and the remote off-grid lifestyle.   We are a comfortable lodge set in the wilderness of Canada's Northwest Territories. Our cabins are warm and cozy, our rooms are clean and comfortable and our 2 lounges are used for gathering the groups. We have a wood fired sauna, wood fired outdoor hot tub and a screened in gazebo complete with karaoke for our guests.
