Divas Camping in Canada?

No, we don’t camp, we Glamp!

Imagine two high-powered divas living the dream in London and giving it all up for a special plot of heaven in the heart of British Columbia. Well, that is the “Happy ever after” tale of two divas who created the Sunwolf Resort, just 45 minutes outside of Vancouver. The moment that they saw the property, they knew life was going to change forever. With the help of their husbands, lots of elbow grease, and love, they transformed this once rundown fishing station into a buzzing hot stop for urbanites who want to get away from the harsh glare of the city, but don’t want to give up the creature comforts of modernity.

Sunwolf, in British Columbia, Canada, has mastered the art of “Glamping.” It is a combination of camping with all the luxuries that girlfriends need to have a memorable getaway. That includes charming cabins with full bathrooms, fireplaces, and the all-important coffee makers.

Located on the plush banks of the Cheakamus River, the properties has ten private cabins, communal barbecues, a hot tub, a fire pit, volleyball net, horseshoes and the delightful Fergie’s café that serves breakfast, lunch, and on the weekends dinner.

During special times of year, Fergie’s café host incredible 12-course tasting dinners. Guests dine under the stars, while the chef bring out courses created especially for that season. Dishes include fresh salmon, seasonal vegetables, and local artesian cheeses.

For the adventurous, a ride down the river is a must and the resort host one of the more fabulous rafting trips in the area. The crew at Sunwolf will take care of all the details for you and your girlfriends – including the wetsuits and lunch. The trip rides you through the Elaho valley, a part of British Columbia’s unspoiled wilderness, with old growth forests, hanging glaciers, cascading waterfalls… and two mighty Class IV rivers for you to conquer. It does help that the rafting crew is really handsome and fit.

After all that hard work, spend the evening around the open fire pit drinking Bailey’s and hot chocolate or soaking in the hot tub. Or better yet – enjoy both!

Your day includes:

Gourmet Wild Pacific Salmon BBQ & lunch on a private island
Snacks at the end of the day.
Full wetsuit, gear and professional river guide
