In 1980, an apprentice monk dressed completely in robes showed up at Vidette Lake Lodge claiming to have found the centre of the universe. By 1984, several tests had been conducted by a group of monks that verified this claim. Monks continue to visit this location from around the world. Visit an abandoned gold mine with several shafts still visible and old mine buildings now used to house guests at the resort. Located on an old fur trading route, one cabin has been constructed using some of the old logs from an historic fur trading post building. This site offers 16 beautiful lakes, stunning scenery and the chance to meditate at the centre of the universe!
