The northern territories of Canada offer awe-inspiring backdrops, including everything from rolling Arctic tundra to beautiful boreal forests, that will wow any incentive group.

Give your award winners a true sense of wilderness adventure with a visit to Blachford Lake Lodge. Just getting to the isolate resort is part of the experience, as groups must take a 25-minute bush plane flight from the city of Yellowknife, soaring above glaciers and snow-covered meadows.  

Blachford Lake Lodge offers many benefits of a luxury hotel in a true wilderness setting. During the summer months, teams can bond over activities such as kayaking, canoeing, and fishing; while during the winter, they can experience the icy terrain up close with snowshoeing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. The pristine landscape is also the perfect setting for watching the aurora borealis due to its remote location, unpolluted by artificial light and noise. 

Bring your team together in the shared task of building igloo, fostering collaboration amongst the group. The igloo is a traditional Inuit winter dwelling that has been used for generations, with the earliest written evidence of igloos dating from 1576. Challenge your team to work together in the crisp snow to build their own igloo using traditional Inuit methods of construction, and then celebrate their accomplishment with local culinary treats, observing the enchanting display of the aurora above, in the snow shelter that they collaborated to construct.
