This iconic Great Canadian Lodge is more than just an opulent place to lay your head at night — it’s an experience that creates lasting memories surrounded by nature and wildlife.
Luxury, history, variety. The cozy feeling that seems to permeate every corner of the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is transcended only by the seemingly endless assortment of activities there are to do on the grounds.
There’s the option, of course, to simply relax in one of the Fairmont’s quaint cedar chalets or exquisite Signature Cabins, which have more than once been the refuge of choice for royalty, such as Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip. But those who want to more thoroughly explore the 700 acres of pristine lakeside property will find no shortage of fun pursuits.
From a year-round outdoor heated pool to world-class golf course, full-service spa and many kilometers of trails, here are seven ways to spend a day at Canada’s ultimate cabin escape.
2022 marks one hundred years since this iconic accommodation started providing a place for Jasper travelers to rest. Find out how to celebrate their centennial here.
7 Try classic winter sport
When the mercury drops the fun doesn’t stop. Rent gear for ice skating on Mildred Lake (which is maintained with a zamboni and also includes a top notch series of areas for pick-up games of hockey), or explore the trails by snowshoe or by cross-country skiing.
