And that is a damn shame.
Riding to the rescue is Cloud Camp at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, a remote Canadian resort’s new even-more-remote encampment that sits 4,500 feet above sea level. It’s available beginning in June.
Getting there is easy. All you have to do is book a stay at the main resort, get to Canada, hop on a private seaplane transfer from Vancouver or a boat ride from Tofino, arrive at the lodge and then, barring any unfavorable weather conditions, arrange a helicopter ride to a peak on Ursus Mountain. See? Nothing to it.
And if you’re doubtful, this slideshow will show you why it’s worth it.
You’ll have the run of the whole place. There’s a mountain lake you can hike around or stick an apprehensive toe in. A tent with a wooden floor. A bed you can sleep or not sleep in. A chef who makes a five-course, wine-paired meal for you and whoever your companion is.
The chef has his own tent.
