Access remote archipelago at this Canadian getaway
BY HILARY NANGLE — Spring 2019
The 12-room, fly-in, cultural tourism lodge honors Haida heritage with traditional architectural and design elements while pampering guests with a spa, theater, library, sauna, steam room, and lounge. It’s anchored in sheltered Peel Inlet, near the base of 3,819-foot Mount Moresby, Haida Gwaii’s tallest peak. This location, on the archipelago’s rugged west coast, provides easy access to the combined Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area Reserve, and Haida Heritage Site. This massive preserve protects southern Haida Gwaii’s remarkably diverse ecosystem from the mountains to the sea. SGang Gwaay UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the world’s best examples of a Northwest Coast First Nations village, lies within the reserve.
Ocean House opens up this remarkable landscape to guests and introduces them to the heritage and culture of those inhabiting it.
