Trip reference number: WOTW-33
Trip Operator: Windows On The Wild
Nestled on Miminiska Lake, a natural widening in the Albany River, this full-service accommodation's A-frame cabins provide all the amenities of a hotel suite in the depths of the rugged NorthernOntario Wilderner.Explorers once came to this lake, propelled northward on the Albany River, in search of territory and trade. For years the river served as a highway for the fur trade, with campsand forts peppering the river's edge. Long since turned back over to the wild, Miminiska's surroundings are all that you would hope to expect to find in the depths of the Canadian wilderness:unadulterated wilderness, fresh water, and bountiful fish and wildlife populations.
