The lodge is off the grid and only accessible by a float plane flight from Nimpo Lake (a 20-minute flight). Nuk Tessli offers accommodation in secluded log cabins fully equipped with a compost toilet, solar lights, a wood stove and fresh running water. Meals are served in the dining cabin and showers can be found in the shower cabin, 30 meters away. Canoes, kayaks, SUP and fishing rods are also available for use.
