Day One - Lund to Homfray Lodge
Arrive on your own into Lund, BC, gateway to Desolation Sound. There will be a welcome reception and meet the crew as you set off from the quaint village of Lund. Cruising north into Desolation Sound and leaving the boaters behind, we cruise into Homfray Channel, one of the deepest channels in North America and flanked by towering peaks, including the majestic Mount Denman (1920 m). In the evening, we reach Homfray Lodge, nestled in the remote wilderness of Desolation Sound, where we meet the staff and enjoy our meals prepared by the lodge’s chef.
Day Two - Homfray Lodge
Cruise today as you travel north into remote Toba Inlet, a deep fjord with steep peaks, glacier green water and spectacular waterfalls. Return to Homfray Lodge in the afternoon with time to relax on the lodge’s expansive dock as the chef prepares your dinner.
Day Three - Homfray Lodge
Today you may enjoy the rustic charm and authentic warmth of Homfray Lodge. Warm summer temperatures and the meeting of the tides cause the Desolation Sound to have the mildest climate, most abundant sea life and warmest water on the BC Coast, with ocean temperatures reaching up to 24°C (75°F). This peaceful setting allows you to enjoy the breathtaking scenery, vibrant marine life, and the lodge’s activities such as kayaks, stand up paddle boards or join an eco-boat tour to explore the nearby waters. With the warm waters, you can even enjoy a swim off the lodge’s dock!
