Base camp

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the deployment of the WTSC base camp and Creetopia tents has been delayed. The exact location of the base camp will be determined very soon. Stay tuned for updates!

Welcome to the Wiinipaakw Tours Solidarity Cooperative base camp

Enjoy Mother Earth’s welcome and embrace. Put your luggage down because you’ve finally arrived at the Wiinipaakw Tours camp, where comfort and nature go hand in hand. Here, you’ll camp in an exhilarating setting (vast lands under vast skies) in the company of Cree guides and their ancestral stories and legends. An authentic experience to be found nowhere else in the world.

Our Creetopia tents, your one-of-a-kind accommodations

You’ve probably gone camping before, but we’re sure you’ve never spent a night in a Creetopia tent. They were custom-designed for the Cree Nation and seamlessly bring together Cree culture and the comforts of luxury camping.

After a busy day of exploring the coast of James Bay on our boat, you’re sure to appreciate the welcoming comforts of your Creetopia tent – including a bathroom with shower and a fireplace. Plus everything you need to disconnect from your daily routines fully and enjoyably.

Front row to admire the northern lights, the fireworks of nature

With a clear sky and total darkness, you could witness above you the northern lights of Northern Quebec. Look up to the sky when night falls, you may be treated to one of the most striking light shows. Let yourself be impressed by all the splendor that nature has to offer.

There’s strength in numbers

In conjunction with Cree communities, the Cree Outfitting and Tourism Association (COTA) called on the experts at the French company Huttopia to design “ready-for-camping” tents inspired by Cree culture. All in pursuit of a simple objective: to provide you with an unforgettable stay in Eeyou-Istchee!

After a fact-finding tour on Cree lands, the glamping specialists from Huttopia developed a modern tent prototype for Nordic settings that is unlike anything else. What other destinations can offer you nightly stays in a Creetopia? No other destination can! And that’s because Creetopia tents are exclusive to the region of Eeyou Istchee Baie-James.

Deployment of the Wiinipaakw Tours base camp is set for 2021. As planned, Creetopia tents will be installed in harmony with nature by members of the region’s Cree communities.
