Ocean House, Haida Gwaii

Nestled on the remote, rugged shores of the Haida Gwaii archipelago, a stay at the Ocean House is a chance to connect with nature and immerse yourself in the rich culture of the Haida people.

Situated in a sheltered bay, this enchanting floating lodge provides the perfect combination of adventure, culture and luxurious relaxation. You’ll find yourself in the midst of spruce and cedar forests, with access to unspoilt beaches and ancient village sites. Whilst an off-the-beaten-path escape, the property has all the home comforts and comes complete with its own theater, library, steam room, sauna and complimentary Wi-Fi. 

Activities at this 100% Haida-owned property include trekking, kayaking, stand-up-paddle boarding, wildlife watching and fascinating cultural tours. When you’re not exploring the archipelago, you can take the time to unwind with an in-house spa treatment or catch on up some reading in the plush lounge. The resident chef prepares tantalising and creative dishes inspired by local ingredients and utilising seasonal vegetables and fresh seafood.
