This 10-day break is a wonderful exploration of Canada's wild Northwest Territories, where you'll stay just east of Yellowknife in pristine wilderness in the spectacular Blachford Lake Lodge. Only reachable via a 30-minute bush plane flight from Yellowknife, this remote lodge will see you spending days hiking, biking and canoeing around the serene lake, culminating with a soak in the onsite hot tub and sauna, indulging in all-inclusive home-cooked meals and relaxing in your wooden-beamed log cabin. It's all bookended with Vancouver's coastal delights, where you'll stay in a contemporary hotel on the shores of the pretty Coal Harbour, as well as discovering the historic city of Yellowknife.

Check into your pine-clad room with stunning lake views, or opt for one of the five private lodges, before settling down to a home-cooked dinner featuring the likes of halibut and flank steak alongside an excellent wine list. The next five days will be spent exploring the area, perhaps with a canoe or kayak under the midnight sun which allows for 24/7 activity. You'll also get a daily guided interpretive experience, or perhaps take out a boat or dip in the sun-warmed lake.
