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.

By far the best tea we had in Canada!

“The lodge is built on the edge of a meadow surrounded by mountains. It is remote and wonderful. The food is great, particularly the afternoon tea – a deli-style mixture of cheeses, olives and cold meats followed by cake. There is a range of tea and coffee (with teapots and big mugs) available 24/7 – by far the best tea we had in Canada, with heavenly views.”
