Daily excursions are available at the lodge. Kayaks and boats are on hand to explore the lake. Other excursions include hiking, helicopter assisted trekking, floating the Happy River, fishing the Canyon Creek area, or just hiking along nearby Wolverine Mountain spotting wildlife. The lodge offers complimentary massage, yoga classes, daily cooking classes, cheese tastings, and more.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
