As an eco-resort, Nipika operates in harmony with our beautiful, mountain surroundings of British Columbia. British Columbia is one of Canada’s best examples of pristine wilderness and Nipika makes every endeavor to coincide with our surroundings in sustainable, eco-friendly ways. Our philosophy at Nipika is to fully engage and help our guests enjoy the spectacular setting using self-propelled activities, while utilizing clean energy sources, and recycling everything we can. It is Nipika’s goal to enjoy Canada’s Rocky Mountains in non-consumptive ways.
At Nipika, we’re proud to source power from the sun and the forest around us. Nipika is completely off grid. Being solar powered, all of the eco-resort’s electricity is generated via clean, natural and sustainable means. The majority of Nipika’s heating needs are satisfied by salvaging dead wood from the woodlot and burning it in a central boiler to provide hot water heating to the guest cabins and other buildings. Our hot water is supplied using the same system.
We are nestled in the heart of Canadian wilderness and people from all over the world have made the trek to our “neck of the woods”. Wildlife, night skies… Activities year round…Nipika focuses on self-propelled outdoor activities experienced in harmony with the natural British Columbia settings including cross country skiing, ice skating, fat biking, tobogganing and snowshoeing in the winter months and mountain biking, hiking, trail running and much more during the summer months!
Nipika is proud to offer pet friendly accommodations. For us, pets are just part of the Nipika family, so bring your entire family along!
Nipika itself has 3 furry companions, and as we often say – they have to be experienced to be truly understood.
We all get to play in the Nipika playground, and so should our furry friends. With over 100 km of trails, and our open meadow, they will have plenty of new friends by the end of the weekend! When booking your accommodations, please let us know in advance if you are planning on bringing your best pet pals.
Have a larger animal in mind? We have horse stables on site, so they are welcome too. Learn more about our stable accommodations. Nipika also offers “Board n Bale Holidays” for horse owners looking for a spectacular place for a riding get-away.
We’re the ideal getaway for groups! Book your wedding, family reunion, corporate retreat, or special event at Nipika. The eco resort features a conference centre, dining hall, and catering service. Request our information packages about customized wedding and corporate programs.
