A Seven day trip to Nuk Tessli
Monday - Monday or Thursday - Thursday
This is an example for our suggested full week stay at Nuk Tessli but it's just one of many options of trip variations to NT.
We'll be happy to tailor make a trip that will suit you best. The pricing stays the same.
Day 1 - Arriving at Nuk Tessli
You'll start your adventure in the Chilcotin 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 - 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 2.5 km to Boundary Lake through beautiful meadows, with many-a-colored flowers in full bloom, and plethora of mushroom varieties.
At Boundary Lake, we'll paddle to one of the islands and have lunch.
No portaging needed!
Day 3 - The Mammaries
After yesterday was focused on canoeing, today you'll get back into hiking.
Hiking up to The Mammaries will give you spectacular views and a 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.
For the stronger hikers, go up to Avalanche Ridge for an exceptional alpine experience.
Day 4 - The Three Brothers canoeing/hiking day
The Three Brothers trail is another lovely combination of hiking and canoeing.
The trail will take up to a beautiful viewing point from a new and different angle while canoe across two small lakes.
We keep canoes and gear at each lake so there's no need to portage anything.
Day 5 - 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 and Flat Top 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 massive Coastal 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 6 - Around The Lake / Rest Day
Canoeing and hiking up the mountains can be quite exhausting and sometimes, all you need is to take a moment to enjoy this beautiful you're at.
A rest day of reading on a hummock or easy hike around the lake is a lovely way to spend your day at Nuk Tessli.
Take a kayak, canoe, paddle board and explore the coves, beaches and benches all around our lake.
Around The Lake is an easy and lovely trail that can be combined with canoeing / kayaking etc.
Day 7 - Ape Lake
Ape Lake is an amazing glacial lake in the heart of the Coastal Mountains and can easily be the highlight of your trip to Nuk Tessli.
With deep blue ice caves, magical tarns and amazing scenery, Ape Lake is an adventure of a life time.
Day 8 - 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.
