Get enchanted by the sounds of melting snow and new growth during Spring; during the Summer, take to the lakes in a canoe and explore the Rockies from a new vantage point; in the Fall, witness the valley bed and surrounding forests burst into a blaze of inspiring oranges, yellows and reds; and bundle up in the winter for a long season of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and, of course, a piping mug of hot cocoa at the end of the day.
Spring at Mount Engadine Lodge
Spring in the Canadian Rockies is a favourite time of year for many, and it’s easy to see why: the snow is melting, the air is fresh and clear, trees and flowers begin to bloom, and families of animals emerge in preparation for the warmer weather. It’s the perfect time to embrace new opportunities and start dreaming of another year exploring lakes and peaks and valleys.
There are hundreds of kilometres of hiking trails that cut through our backyard, criss-crossing the Spray Valley Provincial Park, Kananaskis Country and, further, Banff National Park and beyond. Ranging from calming strolls along valley floors, to ridge-line treks taking you to new heights, there are routes for just about every skill level! Step out your cabin door and onto the trails and explore majestic glacial lakes, flower-filled alpine meadows and towering peaks.
Looking for something a bit more fast-paced to get your heart racing? Try trail running or cycling, both fantastic ways to get in a good exercise before relaxing with some of the lodge’s amenities. Our partners at Rebound Cycle offer two-wheeled solutions to those with a need for speed and mobility. You can book custom cycling tours, coaching, or instruction through Cycling-101 to ensure that you get the most out of your visit and the trails. And, for the ultimate in adventure, ask us about the tours run by Alpine Helicopter, where you can look out over the unbelievable landscape of Kananaskis and Banff National Park from thousands of feet in the air. It’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
