Extraordinary Barrenland Adventures. Small Groups

Welcome to Peterson’s Point Lake Lodge. We’re known as the best lake trout fishing lodge in the Northwest Territories, where lake trout are hungry to strike. Our Arctic Photography tours are increasingly popular and our hiking tours, where you can walk on time-honoured caribou trails, both offer a multi-experience adventure without sacrificing comfort. If you’re interested in seeing the northern lights, want to get away from the crowds and city lights, there’s no better aurora viewing location; our aurora tours are a natural part of your stay with front row seating right from your cabin. Point Lake is steeped in history including Sir John Franklin’s search for the northwest passage and it is also the home to some of the oldest rocks on earth. Join us and enjoy the best of Canada’s Northwest Territories experiences, all the while enjoying award-winning customer service in the comfort of our lodge.

Our packages are built around the changing of the seasons. Summer and fall happen all too fast – within ten weeks a year. Needless to say, it’s a short window to experience mother nature’s striking beauty. The seasons are short and intense – that’s life in the Arctic. We invite you to come and experience this spectacular place while staying in the comforts of our lodge. The experience may very well inspire you to return to do it all over again, just like George. We’re open July through September.
