Autumn at Mount Engadine Lodge


Autumn in the Canadian Rockies is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful seasons in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Between September and November, Canadians are treated to the dazzling spectacle of millions of trees changing colours, shedding their leaves, and preparing for winter. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the vast expanses of Spray Valley Provincial Park where the air becomes brisk and rejuvenating and the views from the mountains are more breathtaking than ever.

Throw on a sweater and lace up your hiking boots, because the hundreds of kilometres of trails and pathways are still filled with hikers and trail runners. If you're feeling extremely adventurous, you can still climb some of the peaks - but be sure to check weather forecasts, pack accordingly, and be safe! Rent bikes for the whole family with our partner Rebound Cycle if you want to see everything and get around quickly. 

For a true Canadian experience, hop into a canoe and take an awe-inspiring trip across the clear waters of the nearby lakes and rivers. When the day is done, wrap yourself in a blanket and settle by the fire, enjoy a local craft beer and exchange stories with other guests from around the world. 

Looking for something truly unforgettable? Admire the warm hues of Kananaskis from above with our friends, Alpine Helicopter - it's the ultimate rush.

Get off the tourist route and sample the delights of Alberta

"A friendly and helpful team run the lodge to give visitors the best possible experience. We stayed for 4 nights and were able to see a variety of wildlife and do some hiking in the surrounding Provincial Park….The views of the meadow, river and mountains were spectacular from our room, the restaurant and decking…Everyone sits down to meals at the same time which was a lovely way to meet people and learn from them ideas of good places to visit….We enjoyed our visit and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get off the tourist route and sample the delights of Alberta, Canada.”
