Hiellen Longhouse Village
Travel update for summer, 2021: As of July 1, 2021, Haida Gwaii is open for recreational travel. Before arriving on the islands, visitors are strongly encouraged to take the Haida Gwaii Pledge and learn how to travel to Haida Gwaii respectfully. Visitors are also strongly encouraged to arrive fully vaccinated.
Tucked in the forest on Haida Nation land at the base of Tow Hill, this Haida Gwaii property has limited cell service and no Wi-Fi. But why play with your phone when you’re steps from crabbing and clam-digging on North Beach and hiking through the wilderness?
The property, which is owned and operated by the Old Massett Village Council’s Economic Development Team, offers accommodation in traditional wooden longhouses. Amenities are basic—think “camping indoors” —and you must bring or rent a sleeping bag. Creature comforts include hot-water showers, a gas stove for cooking, and a cosy wood stove to warm up.Learn More
