Mathews Lake - NWT

Treeline Lodge is located about 250 km northeast of Yellowknife, about a 1.3 hr. flight by Beaver floatplane, or 1 hr. in a Twin Otter. It is in the Northwest Territories, the Central Barrenlands, in the transition zone between taiga and tundra.
Treeline Lodge has been adapted into a full-service lodge, overlooking Matthews Lake. Guest quarters are buildings with central heating and nice twin-bedded rooms along a central corridor. - American Plan Dining

Treeline Lodge is located in open tundra with several areas of parklike spruce forest, where the taiga gives way to the tundra. Several large esker systems offer easy hiking, elevated above the surrounding tundra and lakes, excellent for viewing of nesting loons, ducks, and passing wildlife. These esker systems are used as highways by wildlife including fox, caribou, or even a wolf.

The country offers excellent opportunities for hiking and wildlife and bird watching. In July, hikers can find multitudes of blooming wildflowers and nesting tundra birds. In August, hikers are rewarded with "en route" snacks of berries - blueberries, akpiks (cloudberries), lingonberries, crowberries, and bearberries. We also offer optional supplementary trips or add-ons to our packages - experiences where you can backpack along an esker system, canoe, or camp at other sites.

Northwest Territories adventure guide offers province wide hiking and backpacking adventures.
