One of the park’s popular trails, the Turner Lake Canoe Circuit, features seven beautiful lakes. With that being said, this trail cannot be accessed by a vehicle. As such, travellers must reach it by floatplane or a rather strenuous hiking trail. From here, however, they may rent a canoe for their paddling adventure. 

Also, since many of the trips are multi-day, many visitors stay at the Tweedsmuir Park Lodge. Guests may take excursions along with expert guides, and lose themselves in the majesty the remote wilderness. What’s more, there’s even a wildlife viewing platform right at the resort. As a result, guests may spot bears grazing on the grass right outside the resort! In addition, there’s also a beautiful hot tub and steam room to help people unwind after their grand adventures.
