There are hunting and fishing
outfitters in Newfoundland and Labrador that provide luxurious
accommodations and others that operate from comfortable
wilderness type hunting and fishing lodges. Our Snowmobile
tour operators offer some of the best accommodations of
this type in the province.
Outfitters that offer more
modern and luxurious lodging are generally those that operate
in less remote locations. But there are outfitters that
operate very remote camps while still providing all of the
modern ammenities to their guest. Those that offer wilderness
type lodging usually see lower hunting and fishing pressure
from local hunters and fishermen, but seldom offer spacious
dining and living areas, for example.
Most of our Outfitters have
full time cooks, showers, separate hunter living areas,
and indoor washrooms. However, there are outfitters that
have the most of "roughing it" type operations
for the adventurous outdoorsmen. (Note) It is a requirement
to provide guest with washroom facilities, but in some cases
these facilities are outside the lodge in the form of "outhouses".
In addition a large percentage
of hunting lodges are located "lake-side". This
often provides the hunter with an additional outdoor activity
if he/she tags out early. Many of these lakes are spawning
areas for Atlantic Salmon and Lake Trout and the fishing
is often some of the best in Canada. (Note:) only early
season hunters can take advantage of fishing opportunities
for Atlantic Salmon, since the fishing season closes shortly
after the hunting season begins.
