Is a Wildnerness Tour the Perfect Family Vacation?

Whether you and your family live just down the street from one another or are scattered around the globe, a family vacation is an excellent chance to reconnect and spend quality time together. But choosing a destination and planning out an itinerary for a vacation with multiple different generations, styles, and interests comes with some unique challenges. Is a Wilderness Tour the answer?

At Sointula Lodge, we’re known for our Fishing packages. After all, our BC salmon fishing lodge is located on British Columbia’s coast, in the Great Bear Rainforest. The region is a destination for fishermen and women from around the world. But if fishing isn’t your thing, or if you’re traveling with family members with various interests, our Wilderness Tour Packages offer an excellent alternative. 

These packages are fully customizable. Maybe you want to spend a morning fishing, but an afternoon hiking, sightseeing, or searching for wildlife. No problem—you choose how your group spends your time!

If you’re looking to plan a unique vacation that your whole family will love, keep reading. We’re breaking down a few of the things that make a Wilderness Tour a great choice.

All-Inclusive Means Planning is a Breeze

If you’ve ever tried dining out with more than 4 or 5 people at a time, you know that the entire process can be a challenge. First, you’ll need transportation for everyone, and have to coordinate arrivals. At the restaurant, you’ll face a longer-than-usual wait to get a table large enough for your group. In some cases, you’ll need to make a reservation ahead of time just to get seated.

Going on vacation with more than 4 or 5 people? You’ll be faced with that challenge two or three times a day. And that’s just for meals. Add in young children or grandparents who struggle to drive themselves, and trying to get from one place to the next to feed your group will quickly overtake fun time on your family vacation.

An all-inclusive vacation package takes care of these and other problems when traveling with a group. At Sointula Lodge, you won’t need to worry about driving from one experience to the next or coordinating meals. Everything is planned and arranged for you, from meals to activities to transportation. All you have to do is relax and enjoy some quality time with your family.

Our Wilderness Tour Packages include all of the perks of our Fishing Packages. This means a Beach Bistro picnic, gourmet, multi-course meals at dinner, and on-site amenities, like our hot tub, Finnish-style spa, and resident herd of alpacas.

Activities Everyone Can Enjoy Together are Built In

Traveling with multiple generations of family members is a wonderful chance to spend quality time together and create lasting memories. But if your group immediately goes their separate ways to enjoy a variety of different activities, those memories may come few and far between.

To keep this from happening and maximize your time together, you’ll want to look for activities that everyone can enjoy together. Our Wilderness Tours offer plenty of options. Take a hike on a remote island. Swim beneath a stunning waterfall. Spend an afternoon of fishing—no experience required! Our experienced guides are there to help with the entire process, from baiting your hook to reeling in your very first catch!

Everyone Has Their Own Space

After a long day of making memories, we hope you’ll be excited to spend even more time with your family the next day. But we also know that everyone needs a little space.

When you’re planning a larger family vacation, make sure that at the end of the day, everyone has their own space to retreat to. Too much “together” can lead to short tempers and little arguments that can derail a trip.

With 10 individual cabins, everyone has room to relax and unwind in peace at Sointula Lodge. That way you can start the next day happy and well-rested, and ready for more quality family time. Our Lodge can accommodate groups of up to 18 at a time. This means that you rent out the entire Lodge for your family vacation, and enjoy separate spaces for various smaller families within your group.

Booking a Wilderness Tour for Your Family Vacation

Life is too short to not spend time with the people you love. Planning a multigenerational family vacation is a great way to bring your family closer together and create memories that you’ll treasure for a lifetime. Don’t forget the camera; these are moments that you’re going to want to capture.

At Sointula Lodge, our Wilderness Tour packages are a great option for families of all shapes and sizes. You can fully customize your trip to fit your family’s needs and interests. Plan activities that everyone in your group can enjoy together. And, you’ll still be able to cast a line at the best BC salmon fishing lodge during your visit, too!
