Nemiah Valley Lodge 4

Nemiah Valley Lodge



At Indigenous-owned Nemiah Valley Lodge, guests can connect with nature and sample its traditional bounty. 

Here, the Lodge offers access to beautiful landscapes located in the Xeni Gwet’in, one of Canada’s southernmost intact wilderness environments that rests in the Tŝilhqot’in Nation. It’s an ideal location to immerse in the nation’s culture and celebrate a day in the great outdoors with Indigenous-inspired meals that spotlight locally sourced ingredients with a fresh and healthy focus, such as maple salmon, or tse’man, a centuries-old territory staple harvested from local rivers. 

The eco-lodge is the first Indigenous-led tourism venture on Tŝilhqot’in title lands, thanks to a landmark Supreme Court ruling awarding the First Nation rights and title to their traditional territory in 2014—a first in Canada. Today, the Tŝilhqot’in Nation works to protect their land and culture while educating guests and imparting lessons of the land. 

Guests can indulge in one of Nemiah Valley Lodge’s specially curated, all-inclusive vacation packages. Wake up in “off-the-grid” accommodations and start the morning with Indigenous-owned Spirit Bear Coffee before a hearty breakfast at the Lodge. Daily activities can include oral histories and drumming, beading workshops, creating traditional salves and ointments with locally-gathered ingredients, a sweathouse experience, wild horse viewing, or exploring on and around Chilko Lake.

About British Columbia

In Canada’s westernmost province, fresh local bounty, talented chefs, and a melting pot of cultures combine to make British Columbia a top culinary destination. It’s a rich tapestry supported by farmers, growers, and producers whose ingredients shape menus in communities along the Pacific Ocean, in the Rocky Mountains, and everywhere in between.

Here, Indigenous cultures who have been nurturing the land for millennia showcase traditional offerings with a modern twist. Other multicultural influences inspire chefs and artisan food producers to blend local ingredients with global flavours. Dishes also vary widely, depending on place, creating distinctive regional dining scenes—from wild salmon sushi in Tofino to down-home guest ranch cooking in the Cariboo to delicate dim sum in Richmond. 

Victoria, the province’s capital, boasts more restaurants per capita than almost anywhere else in Canada, while Vancouver, BC’s most populous city, was recently recognized with several MICHELIN Stars, further elevating the city’s reputation as an international dining destination. Wine touring, spirits, and local beer are hugely popular here, too, in the Fraser Valley near Vancouver, on Vancouver Island, and especially along the Okanagan Valley lakeside, where seasonal pours provide the perfect finish to a day of hiking, biking, and swimming.
