Island Lake Lodge is a spectacular backcountry resort offering lodges accommodation, dining, spa, canoeing and an extensive hiking trail network. Tucked within a pristine private valley with towering peaks in all directions, Island Lake Lodge is a place to indulge in nature, mountain scenery, adventure, wellness, fine dining, quality service and refined accommodations.
Island Lake Lodge is just over 12km from the town of Fernie. The access road is rugged, please allow yourself 20 minutes to drive up.
Day-trippers can enjoy the many hiking trails, or pre-book a guided hike, canoe on the lake or visit the spa. Enjoy beautiful patio lunches and gourmet dinners. Ensure you check the operations calendar before your visit, as there are non-operational days and private functions throughout the season.
The lodge is available for bed & breakfast stays, however, please reserve in advance as Island Lake Lodge is a popular summer destination.

In winter Island Lake Lodge transforms into one of the leading cat skiing resorts in North America offering multi-day inclusive packages. Traditionally sold out a year in advance, Island Lake Lodge does keep a waiting list, which you can be added to by calling 250-423-3700.
There's a very good reason professional athletes and film crews frequent the lodge.
