Note: some require a float plane, boat or helicopter to access. The hotels will be happy to set up transportation.

It feels entirely different to be so far gone.

It isn't as much about the actual hotel stay, as it is about the journey to get there.

At these hotels, you breathe differently. You think differently. You dream differently.

In no particular order:

Moraine Lake Lodge, Banff AB, Canada

I stayed at Moraine Lake Lodge in the Spring a few years back. It felt like a remote location in South Island New Zealand, but so much closer to home.

Sonora Resort British Columbia

My first seaplane flight was by Seair. I was equally excited about the flight and hotel. Both experiences stay with my as favourites. Can't wait to visit again.
