Choosing the Best Wilderness Lodge in Canada for a Group Vacation

There are tons of reasons to plan a group getaway. Maybe you want to reward your top-performing employees with a relaxing trip. Or your family wants to create some new and incredible memories after nearly two years of spending time apart.

Whatever the reason, planning a group vacation multiplies the fun — unfortunately, it also multiplies the planning. Finding enough rooms for everyone in your group, scheduling transportation, coordinating activities, and picking meals means that a group trip is rarely a relaxing vacation for the person or people planning it.

Luckily, there’s a simple solution. Booking an all-inclusive fishing lodge experience means that once you arrive at the resort, everything is planned for you. Everyone in your group can sit back, relax, and enjoy the trip of a lifetime.

Thinking about planning a group trip in 2022? Keep reading to learn how to choose the best wilderness lodge in Canada for a group vacation.

Opt for a Wilderness Lodge with All-Inclusive Packages

One of the hassles of planning a group trip is coordinating expenses. If you’re a business booking a trip for employees and partners, you’ll need to know ahead of time exactly how much you plan to spend. When things like meals and activities are charged individually while you’re on the trip, this can be very difficult.

In the same way, knowing ahead of time how much a trip will cost will help families to better budget and plan for it ahead of time.

Not all wilderness lodges are all-inclusive. But if you want to avoid the hassles of paying for individual meals and activities during your trip, opt for one that is.

At Sointula Lodge, we offer 4- and 5-day fishing and wilderness trip packages that make it simple to plan and budget for your group trip. Everything from food to lodging to activities is included in one easy-to-budget-for price. The only additional costs you’ll need to plan for is your transportation to and from the lodge, a British Columbia fishing license for each member of your group ($38.85 CDN), and a tip for the staff following your trip.

Pick a Lodge with Space for Your Group

Wilderness lodges come in all shapes and sizes. But choosing the best wilderness lodge in Canada for a group vacation means choosing one with plenty of space for your group — or better yet, the ability to book the entire lodge for just your group.

At Sointula Lodge, we have space for just 18-guests on each trip. If your group is around 18 people, you can even book the entire space as a private retreat for your group. But even if you don’t book the entire lodge, our small, intimate experience ensures that your group will have the opportunity to spend plenty of one-on-one time together, with space to stretch out in the evenings when you need a break.

An Intimate Experience

Besides your lodging, you’ll also want to choose a package that allows your group an intimate experience during the day.

For instance, a boat overflowing with tourists hardly gives you a chance to enjoy a special moment with a family member.

But at Sointula Lodge, we place just 3 to 4 guests on each boat. You’ll not only have a chance to spend one-on-one time with your employees or loved ones, but you’ll also get hands-on help from our experienced staff. This is ideal for groups that have members who don’t have extensive fishing experience.

Our unique meals are a great chance to come together with the rest of your group. From a special beach picnic to gourmet meals at the lodge in the evenings, you can relax, take in the delicious food, and swap some actual fishing stories from your day.

The next day, you can keep to the same groups or mix it up to give everyone a chance to spend time together.
