Glamping in Canadian Rockies is a great way to immerse yourself into the wilderness – and for many it will be the best way to enjoy a close to nature experience. Just like camping but with no hassle. That being said, Mount Engadine Lodge is one of the favourite spots for glamping in Canadian Rockies.
Canadian Rockies are a great area for hiking in summer and snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in winter. Mount Engadine Lodge is located in Spray Valley Provincial Park, just east of Canadian Rockies, along the Spray River in western Alberta. The area is well known for the mountains, hiking, and local cuisine.
While staying in area I would highly recommend visiting beautiful Spray lakes, visit Old Goat Glacier Trailhead, visit Sunshine Village with over 100 ski runs, rejuvenate your body and mind in Upper Hot Springs and catch a ride in gondola from BAnff to the top of Sulphur Mountain to enjoy the magnificent views.
These are just some of the recommendations. You can choose Mount Engadine Lodge as your base to explore this stunning area.
