Hiellen Longhouse Village
Update for Summer 2020 Travel: As of July 2020, Haida Gwaii remains closed to non-essential and leisure travel. For more information on responsible travel and Indigenous experiences, please visit the Indigenous Tourism BC website.
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
