Day 1 - Arriving at Nuk Tessli
You'll start your BC wilderness adventure by taking a 20 min float plane flight from Nimpo Lake to Nuk Tessli, arriving around noon.
After you get organized in your private cabin, you'll make some sandwiches (homemade bread included) and go on a half-day hike to the Look Out Point. From the top, you'll get a great scenic view of the special area you're going to explore on this trip.
Day 2 - Angelheart Lake Loop hike
After a hearty breakfast, we'll be going on a full-day hike to Angealheart Lake. The hike starts with a short boat ride to the Sandy Beach, where the trail head is.
After an hour of hiking up the forest, we'll get above the treeline and the beautiful view of Wilderness Mountain will be on our backs, making us turn around quite often in wonder. Then, the trail will take us to Angelheart Lake, going through North Pass Lake.
From Angealheart Lake, we'll get a great view of the mountains to the south.
After a short break, we'll start our descent to Nuk Tessli where a warm hot tub will be waiting for you.
Day 3 - Boundary Lake canoeing day
Today, we'll take a break from hiking and try some canoeing.
Our objective - Boundary Lake. Boundary Lake is located just on the Tweedsmuir Park boundaries.
A short ride with the motor boat will take us to the end of Nuk Tessli Lake, where we'll hike for about 150m to Cohen Lake and to the start of our canoeing experience.
On the way, we might see some Bald Eagles and their massive nests.
We'll paddle Cohen Lake to it's end, while enjoying the amazing feeling of true wilderness, the refreshing breeze and hopefully some Canadian Loons.
At the end of Cohen Lake, we'll leave the canoes and hike for about 2 km to Boundary Lake through beautiful meadows, with many-a-coloured flowers in full bloom, and plethora of mushroom varieties.
At Boundary Lake, we'll paddle to one of the islands and have lunch.
Day 4 - The Mammaries
After yesterday's rest from hiking, today we'll hike up to The Mammaries. The spectacular view from the top of this trail will give you the feel of a classic wild BC hike.
There's nothing better then having lunch in front of the massive Monarch Mountain massif and Tweedsmuir Park's amazing mountains and glaciers.
Day 5 - Ice Lake (Jacobson Lake)
Jacobson Lake is located in the heart of the Coastal Mountains and it's truly one of the most unique and wild places in BC.
We'll start the day by taking a spectacular float plane flight over the massive Monarch Ice Field (the biggest ice field outside of the arctic). Keep your camera handy.
After landing at Jacobson Lake, between the floating icebergs, we'll get on a small boat and go for a ride in front of the glacier wall that flows and breaks into the lake. If we're lucky, we might see some ice breaking.
Then, we'll dock in a safe place and hike for about 30 minutes to the edge of the glacier. On the way, we'll get some amazing views of the glacier from above it.
In the afternoon, we'll return back to Nuk Tessli for a dip in the amazing hot tub.
Day 6 - Back to Nimpo Lake
If you didn't get the chance to go to Sunrise Point, this is the time to wake up early and enjoy an unforgettable moment.
After breakfast you'll get the chance to sit down, relax and enjoy Nuk Tessli before the float plane comes to take you back to Nimpo Lake.
On the way back to Nimpo Lake, you can take a short detour through the amazing and beautiful, Hunlen Falls.
