Experience the Wonder of Haida Gwaii

Jan 12, 2018
Nestled in the most remote corner of British Columbia, the coastal landscape of Haida Gwaii is a wilderness-lover's paradise, a faraway region of old-growth rainforest rich in wildlife and natural beauty. Images of the rugged terrain were beamed around the world in 2016, when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit, spending the day with the Haida Nation, who have called the area home for thousands of years. As as of this summer, Haida Gwaii will also be home to Ocean House, an exclusive fly-in lodge with Haida staff and an emphasis on service and luxury "uncommon for such remoteness," as manager Lena Jones puts it. The resort has just 12 guest rooms, with luxurious details (think sauna, lounge and Wi-Fi) that allow you to "rough it in style." Travelzoo has worked with Ocean House on an exclusive deal that gives Travelzoo members a four-night stay for the price of a three-night stay.

But the real draw is outside the resort's walls, where guests are likely to spy eagles, bears or whales as they fly into Haida Gwaii by helicopter or explore the landscape.

Haida cultural guides take guests through the lush forests, fertile waters and ancient Haida settlements.

It's an immersion in culture and nature that makes for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

A luxury escape to Haida Gwaii isn't cheap -- for starters, everything from food to staff must be brought in by air -- but packages at Ocean House are almost all-inclusive, with meals and flights from Vancouver included in the rate.  Travelzoo's exclusive deal saves members 25% on their stay. (That's $2205 per night for two people, a saving of $735 per night.)

Highlights of the trip include:

• Return Flights from Vancouver to Sandpit (Haida Gwaii), helicopter transfers to and from the resort
• Luxurious accomodations in an exclusive 12-room resort
• Orientation with Haida cultural ambassador, plus onsite cultural interpreter and resident artist
• Meals prepared by one of “BC's top young chefs to watch” (HuffPost), plus snacks, non-alcoholic beverages and wine at dinnertime

• Daily activities, plus use of the theatre, library, sauna, steam room, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards
