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.

Stay as long as you can!

“We've been lucky to spend 3 nights at the lodge. Days filled with hiking and exploring. Enjoyed watching moose and their young in the meadow and have some amazing photographs. We also were blessed to see a young grizzly on the day we departed. This past summer, we spent several hours enjoying afternoon tea (Engadine style) on their deck. A large bull moose across the meadow, sunning himself. Go and stay as long as you can, and if you can't stay go for tea. The nature, lodge, location and staff won't disappoint you.”
