Why we like it
Haida House was created from a wish to support local communities and conserve the local culture and ecosystem. The islands of Haida Gwaii are little visited in comparison to the rest of Canada and Haida House offers visitors a wonderfully welcoming and comfortable 'home from home', from which to explore and learn about the culture of these beautiful islands.
