Introduction

Washow Lodge is the Moose Cree First Nation's beautiful ecotourism wilderness facility. It celebrates Cree culture, history and tradition. We welcome you to come enjoy our genuine northern hospitality.

Our lodge is operated year-round, and there's always something to do: snowmobiling, paddling, fishing, snowshoeing and more. It's an unforgettable wilderness adventure for those who love sweeping landscapes, northern lights and remote, pristine waterways.

Where else can you observe a black bear and a beluga whale? Or experience thousands of migrating birds flying over vast wetlands? Washow Lodge is a full immersion into the natural heritage of an area that is remote and beautiful, rugged and pristine. Get started with your Washow experience today and immerse yourself in nature.


Getting Here

Washow Lodge is situated along the shores of Hannah Bay, which is approximately 65km south-east of Moosonee and Moose Factory. Because of the unique geographical conditions of our Moose Cree Homeland, there are no roads to Washow Lodge. Instead, visitors reach Washow Lodge by a variety of travel modes, each an adventure in itself.

Often guests travel to the northern communities of Moosonee and Moose Factory by train — the Polar Bear Express — or by plane. Here they meet with Washow Lodge guides before embarking on the final leg of their journey to the lodge itself. You can also arrive by paddling down the Harricanaw or Kesagami rivers.
