Description

Treeline Lodge is located about 250 km northeast of Yellowknife, about a 1.3 hr. flight by Beaver floatplane, or 1 hr. in a Twin Otter. It is in the Northwest Territories, the Central Barrenlands, in the transition zone between taiga and tundra.Several large esker systems offer easy hiking, elevated above the surrounding tundra and lakes, excellent for viewing of nesting loons, ducks, and passing wildlife. These esker systems are used as highways by wildlife. Sit hidden on the edge of an esker and you may be rewarded by the sight of a fox, caribou, or even a wolf. The open tundra is enticing for hiking and birding, and there are 10 miles of roads and unlimited hiking. We have canoes available for paddling on Matthews Lake, and aluminum boats for exploring the lake and fishing. Matthews Lake is home to lake trout, northern pike, and whitefish. There are several creeks providing opportunities to fish for arctic grayling. Fly fishing is possible and usually successful.

Guest quarters are buildings with central heating and nice twin-bedded rooms along a central corridor. Each room is supplied with bedding and a coffee pot. Meals at Treeline are substantial and delicious. Our cooks are experienced and adept at ensuring your meals are a special part of your memories of Treeline. Special diets are available upon request. We have conference facilities for meetings of up to 30 people.

We have several outpost camps that are available for rent. These are "do-it-yourself" camps; we provide tentframes or cabin facilities, and you do the work. Fishing is superb at Lac du Rocher. Due to their diet of small freshwater crustaceans, the local lake trout are fat and their flesh is quite orange. At our Burnside River Lodge the fishing ranks among the best in the NWT, for lake trout, arctic grayling, and landlocked arctic char. We can set up trips that involve first and last night stays at Treeline, then an interlude of camping at Lac du Rocher. Fly-out day trips to Lac du Rocher can also be arranged from Treeline Lodge.
