The Rocky Mountains are nothing short of miraculous works of natural art, and Mount Engadine Lodge sits in the perfect spot to take in all that beauty.

Nestled into Kananaskis Country, the lodge rests against the base of Mount Shark and has a prosperous valley laid out before it. The surrounding area offers a winter playground for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and even dog-sledding tours.

With no televisions, in-room telephones, or computer jacks, you’ll definitely be able to get away from the relentless stresses of every day life.

Where is it?

Mount Engadine Lodge is located in the Spray Valley Provincial Park, sitting just south of Canmore. It is surrounded on all sides by the towering Rockies, and is a short way from the Spray Lakes Reservoir.

How do I get there?

Located just two hours west of Calgary, the most straight-forward route would be to drive along Highway 1 to Canmore, then take AB-742 south until you reach the lodge.

Looking forward to another weekend in the mountains – this time shooting wedding numero uno of the season with #wildlovephotos

What’s there?

The cozy lodge has room for only 19 residents at a time – and pets! – so you’ll be sure to connect over the family-style dinners. The lounge and private rooms are a picture-perfect place to lose yourself in a novel, and its secluded location in the Rocky Mountains means that no stresses will be able to reach you while you’re away.

Surrounding the lodge are snow-capped mountains waiting to be explored, a lush valley divided by a flowing river, and the opportunity Β to experience a true Canadian adventure in the renowned Rocky Mountains – perhaps even from a helicopter.

Prices start at $154 a night, and $322 for double occupancy rooms during the winter season.
