Every cabin has a hot tub on the deck to enjoy and plenty of comfortable space inside. All meals at the lodge are included in our onsite restaurant, with limited seating to ensure social distancing is happening.

Days 3 – 6: Hiking, Kayaking, Hottubbing…..
We will enjoy the next 3 nights at our log cabin nestled in the wilderness of Idaho. We are limiting the number of clients in each cabin to help keep everyone at a safe distance, including private bedrooms for everyone. Each day we will enjoy group activities, or you are welcome to enjoy the days at your leisure. There are areas near our cabins for walks to the beach or some hiking. You can even stay in your cozy cabin and enjoy a good book. Each log cabin has its own hot tub and living space. All meals are included at our onsite resort restaurant, with limited seating to keep everyone socially distanced outside(weather permitting).
We will Explore Idaho’s vast backcountry each day. There are miles of hiking trails on National Forest land near the resort, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. There are trails for every type of hiker. We will choose our hike based on the groups’ experience level.
Keep an eye out, as you may see moose, elk, or possibly a black bear. If the water level allows, we will spend a nice relaxing half-day kayaking in duckies on the beautiful river upstream from the cabins. We will stop to enjoy lunch on one of the many beaches on our journey.
In the evening, relax at the cabin in your hot tub, enjoy the river view, or enjoy some friendly card games.

- What if I am traveling alone?
- Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it’s usually because they’re looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn’t have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you’ll be traveling with friends. You don’t need to pay the single supplement if you’re traveling alone. We’ll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself. For selected trips, including cruises, we will charge half the single supplement if you request a roommate but we can’t match you with someone.
