TREELINE LODGE
Fall on the Tundra

There is a place, north of the 60th parallel, where you can let your spirit fly free over the ancient yet ageless tundra. Here the wilderness from horizon to horizon and the movement of the great caribou herds rumbles over the land.

In the fall, the tundra exhibits an incredible tapestry of colour, usually in late August and early September. Our program dates are selected to maximize exposure to these fall colours and the migrating caribou herds. These herds include mature bulls in striking fall pelage with antlers shedding the velvet. A herd of bull caribou passing in view, or splashing in the edge of a lake against the red of the tundra, is a magnificent sight. Photographic opportunities abound.

Activities: The basic package at Treeline includes accommodations, meals, access to equipment for tundra and lake exploration, and some guided experiences. Hiking is a favoured activity; the esker systems provide easy walking with views across the land and adjacent lakes, and opportunities to look for wildlife. Berry-picking (cloudberries, blueberries, and lingonberries) is an enjoyable pastime, and our cook will be happy to convert the berries collected into delectable treats. Runners can take to the roads or even strike out along the eskers for an early morning run.

Canoes, kayaks and boats with motors are available for accessing the many lakes in the area in addition to do some recreational fishing on Matthews Lake. Mountain bikes are available for those who wish to explore the many miles of roads and tracks that remain from historic mining activity. Early morning or evening drives on the road system give you an easy and effortless way to look for wildlife like caribou, tundra birds, waterfowl, foxes, and the occasional wolf or grizzly bear. If there is interest, guests may visit an abandoned gold mine nearby, one of the first mines to operate in the tundra environment.

Evenings bring the opportunity to relax in our lounge, associate with other guests and staff plus opportunities to view northern videos or slide shows from our lounge library, to learn about Dene and Inuit culture of the barrenlands, as well as to hear stories of the explorers and their Dene guides who passed nearby so long ago. The August evenings are dark, and on clear evenings, the aurora often blazes across the sky in immense billowing curtains of light, reflected in the still waters of the lake.
