February 9, 2021

The countdown is on! In 101 days Kipawa Lodge will open for the 2021 season. This will be number thirty four for us. Normally we are pretty pumped. The phone is ringing, guests are excited about their upcoming trip and we are doing our best to fit everyone in. Thanks to Covid-19, things are different this year but looking an awful lot like 2020.

At this time the Canada/US border remains closed. With a slow vaccine roll out it is still very unclear when it will open. More information regarding travel restrictions please see the Government of Canada website. 



Rest assured that your health and safety is our #1 priority and that we will be taking all necessary precautions to keep you safe.
