The BLBCA is committed to maintaining the environment and leaving as small a footprint as possible while providing our guests the opportunity to enjoy the unparalleled B.C. backcountry.
There has never been a more pertinent time to make environmentally responsible travel choices and the Backcountry Lodges of British Columbia offer just that. Although some form of mechanized transport is usually used at the beginning and end of the trip to whisk guests to and from their backcountry getaway, a backcountry lodge vacation is certainly one of the 'greenest' travel options available in today's carbon-conscious world. The self-propelled nature of the activities offered at the lodges earn top marks from the most conscientious and discerning of travellers.
For those seeking an exciting, rewarding and responsible travel option, a backcountry lodge seems like a 'natural' choice! Taking good care of the mountain environments in which the lodges operate is of paramount importance to the BLBCA and as an association we put our money where our mouth is. The BLBCA is a proud financial supporter of BEES (Backcountry Energy Environmental Solutions), a non-profit initiative that collects information, facilitates research and shares information about energy, water and waste management at recreational facilities in off-grid mountainous regions. Furthermore, many of our lodges operate on off-the-grid, alternative energy systems. Be sure to ask all about it during your next visit to a lodge.
