What to Expect

For our most adventurous guests, our pet-friendly Yurt offers a unique camping-style experience in the heart of Kananaskis Country, just 36km south of Canmore and 60km south of Banff.

This is our most budget-friendly accommodation option available, with a “Campsite Experience” (no plumbing, shower facilities, or electricity), but the best views on the property! The yurt is perched atop the meadow – the perfect spot for watching wildlife, and can accommodate up to 4 people.

You’ll also get to enjoy gourmet meals (included in the nightly rate), plus all the amenities of the main lodge, including a bathroom with sink and basin, comfortable lounges, plus complimentary snowshoes and fat tire bikes.

The Yurt is only open seasonally (closed in winter), and can only be booked upon request, so please contact us if you are interested in booking. Experience the best yurt for rent in Kananaskis!

If you’re looking for a more luxurious camping experience, consider our well-equipped Glamping Tents, which are open all-year round (even in the winter).

Please note that there are no TVs or telephones, no cell service, and no WiFi (there is limited WiFi in the main lodge and a satellite phone in the main office for emergencies). We encourage guests to disconnect and embrace the Alberta back-country experience.
