We travelled to Point Lake Lodge in early August and had the best fishing trip of our lives. It is such a beautiful place. From the moment we booked the trip the Peterson family went out of their way to make it as enjoyable as possible. The knowledge and patience of our guide John was the icing on the cake!

If you like raw untouched nature, fishing and wild life or a keen photographer then this place would suit you to the ground. It is a family run business and they are all very genuine, kind and hospitable people. I should not forget about the food, it was great and always in great abundance. The accommodation is at the level... More

I went on the annual photo trip organized by Dr Robert Berdan to Peterson's Point Lake Lodge in late August. It was a wonderful experience - the boating out to the lake; sighting of the grizzly bear and the caribous; tasting of the freshly caught fishes from Point Lake; Robert's photo tips throughout the trip and presentation during the evenings;...

This trip was one of my son and mine best trips together. The Peterson family are extremely inviting and take care of you all the time. The lodge is rustic and fits the experience perfectly. The guides were attentive and watched out for you at all times. To be on the Tundra and experience the natural surroundings and wildlife was... More

What a thrill to bring in these huge, fighting fish! My first catch was 10 minutes after I cast my lure over the side of the boat! Of the group, I caught the smallest fish for the week-only 18-23 pounds!!! The NWT adventure started early in September 2014, with balmy temperatures of 52 to 60 degrees F, and a warm... More

The best trip I have ever taken. Beautiful surroundings, caribou strolling past your windows, very comfortable accommodation and the food was excellent. Staff are beyond friendly and will do anything to help. It really is an incredible place.

I can't say enough good things about this Lodge. I came up to photograph the tundra and caribou and left extremely happy. The lodge is amazing! The food is plentiful and the staff is willing to go the further mile (literally) to get you your photos. My guide, Chuck, was amazing. He took me and my colleague out every day... More

I traveled to Peterson's Point Lake Lodge with my Mother and 14 yr old son this August. I chose Point Lake for it's unique location and what, from conversations with lodge matriarch, Margaret , I concluded was a smaller, family run, less "commercial" fishing lodge. I couldn't be happier with our trip. The scenery was spectacular, the fishing was superb,... More

Peterson's Point Lake Lodge provides a complete Northern experience. The fishing is outstanding. The lake and river system contains a large population of lake trout exceeding 20 pounds and in fact there are fish in excess of 40 lbs. and likely up to the world record. This trip is guided. The guides are at the highest professional level and have... More

I was privileged to attend a one week photography workshop at Peterson's Point Lake Lodge (PPLL). The lodge is located by the lake and is reachable by float plane only. In the fall, the tundra displays beautiful red, yellow and mauve colours, which are truly spectacular, and a dream for photographers. The northern lights visible at PPLL are something that... More
