Forest House Wilderness Lodge
Location: Northern Saskatchewan, 150 kms north of Lac La Ronge
Size: Up to 12 guests
Activities: Hiking, canoeing, swimming
Why it’s eco: Solar panels supply most of the power and the lodge has composting toilets and extensive grey-water filtration systems. A water tank kept in the sauna provides hot showers.
Other good stuff: Over the past 35 years, the lodge has composted everything possible to build up its extensive gardens on the Canadian Shield. As a result, it is able to feed guests from its own organic harvest. Other appetizing treats are gathered in sustainable quantities from the land and lakes around the lodge.
Rates: Visit the website for 2012 prices.
