Covid-19 Protocols

Headwaters Outfitting runs two backcountry lodge sites bordering Mount Robson Provincial park in British Columbia. In order to comply with the New Provincial Health Officer Orders and Regional health authority regarding Covid-19, we will be renting the lodges to smaller self-guided self-catered groups.
