This backcountry lodge in the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia offers some of the best alpine hiking in Canada. Escape to a place with no roads, no publicized hiking trails, no cars, no crowds, no noise, no pollution. Described by many as the ultimate backcountry hiking experience, this lodge offers a unique combination of isolation and luxury. Paradise for the avid hiker, there is endless wilderness to explore and experience. Imagine over 3000 acres of rolling alpine meadows. Fields of fiery wildflowers swaying in the breeze. Countless peaks and ridges rising to touch the sky. All set against a backdrop of tumbling glaciers and alpine vistas.
Traverse across rolling meadows to a shimmering alpine lake, push your limits on our numerous skyline ridges and summits, or relax beside a mountain waterfall. All the while, soak in the spectacular views of the nearby glaciers, deep river valleys and towering peaks of the Canadian Rockies.
Carpets of wildflowers, lush green meadows and untamed cascades of glacial runoff await the summer visitor at this lodge. In the healthful, invigorating mountain air hikers and photographers are transported to another world... a natural world. Easy hiking trails lead away from the lodge for folks who like to amble amid the bountiful wildflowers or photograph the amazing views of the Selkirk Peaks in Glacier National Park, just a kilometer from our front door.
More hardy souls can partake of more vigorous, high alpine ridge hiking, summitting at spectacular viewpoints for sights of Mount Assiniboine or Mount Columbia in the distance. Highly qualified Mountain Guides lead day hikes to the summits and ridges, or offer shorter walks to learn more about alpine flora and fauna. Or guests can simply relax, on the balcony or in a still meadow and soak in the awe-inspiring rocky mountain scenery.
