The Lodge’s new after-dinner astronomy offerings have steadily gained in popularity this summer, even drawing the attention of the Globe & Mail newspaper. Staff astronomer Mike Hiland leads guests on interpretive tours both at Trout Point and in the nearby Tobeatic Wilderness Area, at Indian Fields.
A new riverside platform gives broad views of the Milky Way and other astronomical phenomenon. Trout Point and its surrounds boast the darkest night time skies in North America–superb for seeing things made invisible by light pollution.
The most popular outing is a safari-like expedition in the Lodge’s Jeep Rubicon, along the Tobeatic’s border, to Indian Fields–something described by Globe & Mail bureau chief Oliver Moore!
